But that is the joke. In so many of the episodes of 5 TMS seasons. People somehow remember Statler and Waldorf continually slamming the show, but Kermit and many others do that as well. Within the world of the TMS backstage they're aware it's a "terrible" show noone will want to watch. MMW the more I think about it is closer to the original Muppet show than I first thoughtIt feels like the writers looked at a couple of Muppet Show episodes and thought, "Oh I see! The joke is that it's a terrible show! We'd better drive home how pathetic the Muppets are and how audiences need to be PAID just to see them! That's funny, right?....Ha ha?..." Totally lack of understanding. Painful. And you're right, for Disney that's kinda shocking.
