Muppets return to TV next year (maybe)

However, don't get too excited, because they're not bringing back The Muppet Show. Instead, the six-episode series, America's Next Muppet will spoof American Idol as a slew of new Muppets audition for mainstays like Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Miss Piggy for a chance to be on the show. The series is tentative at this point, but if ABC does decide to air it, look for it around Spring or Summer of 2006. Scuttlebutt also has it that if the show finds an audience, it may entice executives to bring back another fulltime Muppet series.
