    I’m a fan of the new Muppets show but I’m a little annoyed with Disney that they have not brought back the Muppets 3D show at DCA. As a family that was one of our favorite things to do during every visit to Disneyland.

    The biggest problem for the new Muppets is that ABC made the terrible choice to put it against NCIS on Tuesday nights. It would be interesting to see how it would do against a show that wasn’t historically at the very top of the ratings.

      Perhaps that would have made a difference a few years ago, but shouldn’t now in today’s age of DVRs and watching online.
