THE MUPPETS' KERMIT THE FROG AND MISS PIGGY PERFORM ON 'AMERICA'S GOT
TALENT' WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. September 1, 2009 The Muppets' Kermit the Frog
and Miss Piggy will perform on "America's Got Talent's" live results
show Wednesday, September 2 (9-10 p.m. ET) on NBC. They will be
performing before previously announced performer, judge David
Hasselhoff. The Muppets favorite theatergoers and opera box buddies,
Statler and Waldorf, will also be there to provide their signature
commentary.

The Muppets have been a worldwide phenomena for more than 50 years.
From their humble beginnings on local television and variety show
appearances, through their incredible success in six theatrical motion
pictures (including "The Muppet Movie"), their Grammy-winning music
career, and their Emmy-winning international television hit "The
Muppet Show", the Muppets have gone where no troupe of frogs, pigs,
bears, andwell, whatever, have ever gone before. The Muppets are led
by Kermit, the world's most famous frog (and one of the nicest stars,
amphibian or otherwise) in all of Hollywood. Together with the
unfathomably famous Miss Piggy, the arduously amusing Fozzie Bear, and
undeniably odd Gonzo, and many others, Kermit and the Muppets continue
to be sensational, inspirational andof course, Muppetational.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and
Simon Cowell's SYCO Television. Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American
Idol"), Jason Raff ("Momma's Boys") and Scott St. John ("Deal or No
Deal") serve as executive producers.

I missed that on the first read.  I got as far as "Kermit and Miss Piggy"
and stopped reading.  They are Muppets, but they aren't the only ones,
and if they were the only ones on the show, it would merely be "Kermit
and Miss Piggy".  The subject header made me think the whole gang
would be on, and having Statler and Waldorf at least makes the tease
more real.

You were hoping for Wayne and Wanda, right?
