Happy Friday everyone!  Earlier this week ABC released a 10 minute sneak preview of the new Muppets show that is going to be airing in late September.  It looks like the show will be a great combination of old gags as well as new trends in television shows.

The shows format is looking to take a page out of the mockumentary book that hit shows like The Office and Parks & Recreation wrote.  We will also be treated with celebrity guest stars (Topher Grace and Elizabeth Banks both show up in the preview).

Another important change is the inclusion of more adult themes and humor.  Kermit makes a pot joke, Fozzie is taking on dating by meeting his girlfriends parents, and Rowlf appears to have been neutered!

But don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself!

What do you guys think? Are you glad for the return of The Muppets with all the changes or would you rather they leave the franchise alone?
