Welp, that was fast! Just a short while after ABC released its full fall 2015 lineup, here come the trailers.

ABC Sets 2015-2016 Schedule, Updates on ‘Castle’ Future and ‘American Crime’

ABC is the latest of the broadcast networks to throw out their 2015-2016 schedules, and while few major upsets are in store, the network still had some surprising news. Will Castle or Grey’s Anatomy go on beyond their next seasons? And which of the freshman series will get an unexpected reboot?

New ‘Muppets’ Show Gets Full Series Order From ABC

by Britt Hayes May 7, 2015 @ 8:58 PM
The Muppets are indeed returning to TV, as ABC has formally announced a full series order for their upcoming season. Last we heard, the new Muppets series from Big Bang Theory creator Bill Prady was going to be more adult-oriented, presented “mockumentary” style, which seemed a bit odd since the beloved Jim Henson creations always sought to appeal to audiences of all ages anyway. But apparently this approach has paid off, as ABC is so thrilled with what they’ve seen from the new Muppets show already that they’re banking on the series to become a big hit. Also: Synergy.

Muppet fans were both elated and unsurprised to learn that Kermit and his pals might head back to TV for a new ABC series, though the subject matter may well turn some heads. According to a new report, ABC is looking to reinvent The Muppets as a 30 Rock-style mockumentary exploring the characters’ “more adult” lives.

‘Whiplash’ Gets the Muppets Mashup You’ve Been Waiting For

It was only a matter of time, really, but that doesn’t make this new Whiplash mashup video any less awesome. Some clever human beings have edited together footage from Whiplash with footage of Animal from The Muppets playing drums, obviously, and the results are super funny and super cute and absolutely wonderful.

The Muppets Visit the Set of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ in Fantastic Behind-the-Scenes Photos

Before he was a CGI creation, Jedi master Yoda was a puppet. Before green screens became the norm, the Dagobah set for ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ was built elevated off the ground to accommodate Yoda’s puppeteers. And before he brought Yoda to life, puppeteer and voice actor Frank Oz was best known as the man behind Miss Piggy. In a weird way, that makes the most wizened character in the ‘Star Wars’ universe a distant relative of the extended Muppet family.

The Muppets Super Bowl Ad With Terry Crews is Delightful (and Weird)

by Jacob Hall January 28, 2014 @ 3:45 PM
Few people are as welcome on our televisions as Terry Crews and few felt creatures warm our hearts quite like the Muppets. In other words, if you want to sell us a Toyota, there are far worse spokespeople (and spokespuppets) to use. In the grand tradition of modern Super Bowl ads, the presumably very expensive spot starring these guys is online in advance of the big game, giving everyone who doesn't watch football a chance to remember how much they like the Muppets and that really funny guy who used to play sports-ball once upon a time.
And, of course, a chance to BUY TOYOTA BUY TOYOTA BUY TOYOTA.
