Michael Schneider of Variety (aka blogger at Franklin Ave.) wrote the following:
ABC has ordered a script and five script outlines for "America's Next Muppet," a reality TV parody in which viewers may actually get a chance to pick Kermit and Miss Piggy's latest colleague. ABC and Disney remain tight-lipped on the project, although word of the project first leaked last month to several Muppets fan Web sites. But it appears that the new Muppet project would borrow from shows like "American Idol" and "America's Next Top Model" as judges (Kermit? Statler and Waldorf? Animal?) comb through several new characters to select a major Muppet. [Variety]It's not exactly "America's Next Top Model" meets "Nip/Tuck," but I always thought that Miss Piggy was bulimic and Kermit was anorexic.
Behold the fierce new Tyra Banks and Simon Cowell:
