Well the Sesame Street gang opened the show with "A grand old flag" sing along.

I liked the beginning with the gang singing You're a Grand Old Flag and forgetting that Stamos wanted to sing with them. I can't wait to see what song they're gonna sing later in the show.

I missed the opening, however, what I'm watching right now has been enjoyable - nice little running gag of Stamos continually running off to fetch something and missing out on the sing-alongs with the Muppets.

I liked Abby, Ernie, Bert and Grover introducing some of the performances.

At the very least they allowed John Stamos to sing with the Sesame Street gang.

This was a fun appearance. It was nice to see the whole gang at the end during the finale.
