God Bless America and it’s magnificent Broadcasting Company!
It’s been announced that The Muppets has been picked up for a full season, bringing it’s total episode count up to 16. While that’s not as many as a regular sitcom, which can generally air 22 episodes a season, it’s important to remember that The Muppets is not only a niche show, but is also a little more expensive per episode than a non-puppet series in its first season.
Hopefully this should calm down the masses, who have been panicking over the last few weeks that the show would be cancelled. If you tuned out after the first episode or two, be sure to give it another shot, because the writing and tone has gotten much better. Mitchell Stein will be going in to this in more detail next week.
