Kermit Hosts a Block of Classic Films

According to a recent TCM press release, Turner Classic Movies’s "Guest Programmer" series, which regularly airs one night each month on TCM, is going to take over the entire month of November. The series, in which celebrities present a block of their favorite films, will run all November and give 29 celebrities the chance to introduce and discuss their favorite movies with TCM’s Robert Osborne. Among the star-studded list of celebrities sitting down with Osborne to present their favorite films are Whoopi Goldberg, Rose McGowan, Donald Trump, Danny DeVito, Matt Groening, Tracy Ullman, Alec Baldwin, Harvey Fierstein, Martha Stewart, and Kermit the Frog.

Kermit the Frog will host a collection of films on Wednesday, November 21, 2007 on TCM. The event begins at 8:00 pm and lasts until 3:45am – with Kermit presenting four classic films. Kermit’s selections include "Singin' in the Rain" (8pm), "The Band Wagon" (10pm), "Cyrano de Bergerac" (12am) and "Lassie Come Home" (2am).

So be sure to mark those calendars and catch Kermit as he presents and discusses these classic films on TCM.
