Hi Guys,

The Jim Henson Company are developing a new late night gameshow for GSN coming this Summer. The name currently being used is "Never Trust A Puppet" or "Late Night Liars".

The format is "A late night comedy and gameshow where human contestants face off against 5 outrageous puppets, who also happen to be celebrities and lie straight to their face. Puppets created by the Jim Henson Production Company. Hosted by Larry Miller."

I think by sounds of it they have taken some inspiration from how Jim made "Muppets" of the Muppeteers, Bernie Brillstein and others and will make them for the celebs on the show.

Sounds interesting!

Sounds pretty good but I hate to be a pessimist, but knowing the Henson track record, I don't think we'll hear much else. But this really does have potential.

According to BuzzerBlog, the show is now officially called Late Night Liars. It will be hosted by Larry Miller, and will debut on June 10th at 11 PM.

The only new details given are the names of some of the puppets. They are Shelley Oceans (name pun!) who is a washed up comedienne and television personality; William A. Mummy, who is essentially a closeted gay puppet; Cashmere Ramada, a celebutante and tabloid target; and Sebastian Simian, a British entrepreneur and ladykiller. The show, again, is hosted by Larry Miller and the scorekeeper and announcer is The Weasel, another puppet.
