I am enjoying the updated take on the Muppet Show. The past is past and this shown should have no effect on your memories of the original show. That show was great and will always have a place in my heart. This new show is a witty modern take on that scenario and does a fine job balancing silliness with the emotion, staying true to the spirit of the original beloved characters. The humor often veers briefly into raunchy territory, but the original show (many forget) did the same.

Bad gimmick show. Just like that 30 rock but Muppets, cringey 'comedy', bafflingly ignores Jim Henson's superior and family friendly comedy of errors. Stick with the original and always superior Muppet Show.
