    This doesnt appear to be Puppet Up or Late Night Buffet/Del,
    but a whole new adult late night puppet Henson offering under the HA! brand

    late night sketch show

    :eek:

    I think this is a great format to launch new characters and ideas as well as a platform to showcase some of the new characters and concepts that the Henson company has come up with recently.

    I would rather see "SUDS", and Augie and Del from Late Night Buffet, used in recurring skits on a show like this such instead of as web filler.

    And if Tinseltown doesn't get picked up into a full series maybe
    those characters could be used in short segments as well, and since this is under the HA! brand this could turn into a new adult version of The Muppet Show!

    I hope this works out, and TBS actually airs this as a full series, unlike other Henson series that have been announced and then not really panned out.

    Thos all sound like great Ideas, I'd love to see that, like a sketch show done with puppets sort of like snl or mad tv but funny! ha!
    It would remind me sort of like the Jim Henson Hour and that'd be great!

    i really hope they go though with Grown up puppet entertaiment, that would be so great , i love the muppets very much and in some way they kind of did that with some of the muppet stuff sticking in a few choice words here or there, and also some attuide stuff piggy for example .

    i hope they go though with this at some point i mean it is already summer of 08.

    The Henson Company pitches countless projects that get lost along the way in development. I suppose this is one of them. :sympathy:
