Finally caught Studio DC: Almost Live on my DVR. Turns out it’s not the return to glory for the Muppets that we all hoped for. However, it did show signs of the old charm. The characters are still there in fine form, but they can only react against the talent they’re performing with. In this case, a litany of Disney Channel’s current stars.
The only scenes that really sparkled were Dylan and Cole and the cast of The Suite Life with Gonzo and Kermit and Ashley Tisdale with Kermit and Miss Piggy. The other performances left me flat.
If you would like to see for yourself there are a few more rebroadcasts left.

Hopefully we’ll see more of the Muppets with stars other than the typical Disney Channel star of the moment list.
