TV Review: The Muppets, 1.06, “The Ex-Factor”


“This week on The Muppets, the two primary plots play out in reverse: one starts weak and finishes strong, while the other starts strong and finishes horrendously. Spending time with The Electric Mayhem as they road trip with Kristin Chenoweth sounds like a terrific diversion, and for the most part it is, but this is ABC’s The Muppets, which means that their adventure must end on the sourest note possible. Spending time with Kermit as he enlists Miss Piggy to help him secure a last-minute birthday gift for Denise, meanwhile, sounds like compressed hell, but what do you know? It ends on a well-deserved high note for Piggy.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
