Warren the Ape takes the spotlight on his new MTV show - TCA Report

The first session of cable's second day yesterday was for MTV's new show Warren the Ape. Fans of Greg the Bunny know Warren; he's a "serious actor" who's got more vices than Artie Lange, and a nasty jealous streak for his bunny co-star, who used to get all the breaks.

In this series, Warren(whose last name is Demontague) is the star, as he tries to get himself on a reality show. That includes going through all sorts of rehab and recovery hoops, including weekly therapy sessions with Dr. Drew Pinsky.

The session put the many of the usually grouchy critics in stitches, especially when Warren criticized the Muppets, who are fellow "fabricated Americans."

"These Muppets on Sesame Street a lot of the monsters, you know, they've been defanged. They've been domesticated. But I tell ya, don't bring your kids to sets because those things will go for the eyes if you're not watching 'em between takes."

I caught up with Warren in the green room after the panel; the video is below. I also talked to his handlers, Dan Milano, Spencer Chinoy, and Sean Baker. The interview with them will appear closer to the show's June premiere.

Ouch! on the Artie Lange comment. If you're not aware he is recovering from a suicide attempt just a week or so ago.
