As previously reported, the stars of Disney Channel have once again teamed up with the Muppets to produce another music-filled sketch comedy show. Following up on the "Studio DC" premiere (hosted by Dylan & Cole Sprouse) which aired back in August, Disney is readying a second installment of "Studio DC" (hosted by Selena Gomez) for an October debut. The new Disney Channel special is currently set to premiere Sunday, October 5, 2008 at 8pm on Disney Channel. Hosted by Selena Gomez ("Wizards of Waverly Place"), the half-hour special will also feature appearances by The Cheetah Girls ("The Cheetah Girls One World"), Demi Lovato ("Camp Rock"), Moises Arias ("Hannah Montana"), Jake T. Austin ("Wizards of Waverly Place"), Jason Earles ("Hannah Montana"), Jason Dolley ("Cory in the House") and David Henrie ("Wizards of Waverly Place").
Highlights of the program include The Cheetah Girls performing a Bollywood dance number with Miss Piggy; Selena Gomez getting tutored in the art of joke telling by Fozzie Bear; Statler and Waldorf teaching Moises Arias and Jake T. Austin the ins and outs of being a critic; a jealous Miss Piggy dragging Kermit off the stage, causing Demi Lovato to perform the hit single "This is Me" with Beaker; Jason Earles and Jason Dolley's visit to the Swedish Chef's craft services table; and David Henrie jamming with Floyd on the guitar.
Be sure to mark your calendars and prepare for this brand-new Muppet television special featuring a hearty helping Disney Channel stars. I will be sure to keep you updated with more information on the premiere of this new program as soon as more details become available.
