New Muppets Series Loses 1 Million Moms
The new Muppets series that sets the well-known puppets into the context of a docu-comedy similar to The Office had its US TV premiere last week and is already facing waves of criticism from watchdogs that complain that the childrens' series has become a little too grown up for its own good. Of course, those familiar with the old series knows that it wasn't always all that harmless. Especially Miss Piggy's behavior towards her old lover Kermit could today oftentimes be viewed as irritatingly domestic abuse-ish. But it was a different time back then and now Kermit is separated from Miss Piggy and rather flirts wih a different pig.
Of course there's not really such a strong unity among the participants of the 1 million Moms petition - some surly think less fatalistic about the whole thing. Also, the first episode's TV ratings were decent. And it's not at all thrilling for today's teenagers, either. Nothing is perverted here and the smallest children should be in bed after 8pm anyway.
In the end it's a win-win situation for everyone. The million Moms initiative feels validated and the TV channel has its cost-free publicity.
