The Muppets Take ESPN

Jarrod Fairclough – 2020 has been a dumpster fire, hasn’t it? Chaos reigns supreme. If only we had more of The Muppets on our TV screens.

Well, luckily, that’s happening tonight! The Muppets are taking ESPN and helping out on tonights game, Steelers vs Bengals, at 8pm EST. Piggy and Kermit will be in the broadcast booth, while Fozzie reports from the field. The rest of the gang will be there too, with Statler and Waldorf facing off as their teams compete against each other.

Hi ho, Kermit the Frog here.

For tonight’s Monday Night Football game, we have something special planned. Don’t worry – you’ll still get all of the great game coverage and professional play-by-play and analysis from our buddies Steve Levy, Brian Griese, Louis Riddick and Lisa Salters. (We’re football fans too, so we’ll let the experts do their thing.)

But tonight’s game is going to start off with one of the most unusual – and holiday cheerful – openings in the history of MNF. To spread cheer and bring the Muppet and NFL families together, we asked our friends at ESPN if we could help them out with the game tonight. And after a few moments consideration – and some extremely persuasive 2×4 board-breaking from Miss Piggy – they said yes!

So tonight, I’ll be joined by Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Statler, Waldorf and Animal as we execute our Muppet game plan – sure to get you ready for kickoff. And we’ll even be back with more fun throughout the game. Make sure you are ready right at 8 p.m. ET!

If you want to find out why Statler is a Bengals fan and Waldorf cheers on the Steelers, be there! We hope you’ll join us!

Be sure to tune in tonight!
