New Muppets Series Loses 1 Million Moms

Housewife Watchdogs Unhappy With Series Revival

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.

ABC hopes children watch the show and predict they would enjoy some of the humor, but 1MM would disagree. It is not the show it once was. ABC has ruined “The Muppets.” How many parents want to explain the punchline of sexually charged jokes to young children?"

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.

"Many parents unknowingly will let their children watch an episode only to find out its perverted nature too late, unless they are alerted ahead of time. 1MM and others need to get the word out to families to avoid this program at all costs."

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.
