Worst Muppet Show Episodes

Weirdly enough, the Martin Short episode of Muppets Tonight was also my least favorite from that series. Funny how the two main stars of Hulu's hit show, Only Murders in the Building just so happened to be the guest stars of what I consider to be the worst episode from each main Muppet series.

Hopefully, if the Muppets do something with Selena Gomez in the future, it will be good lol.

I'm gonna say the worst for me was the Connie Stevens episode. I realized it was the first episode ever taped so things were "glitchy" at the time but the fact that they didn't put Ernie and Bert throughout the episode in the backstage scenes like they did with big bird kinda made me mad. Heck even calling them onstage at the end would have been nice.

Best joke of the entire series! I laughed myself silly when I saw it (first-run--I'm old!).
(Sorry for dredging up an old thread. I couldn't remember the host of the episode and found it by Googling the joke)
It was the Melissa Manchester episode!
