Second "Studio DC" Special Hits in October

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.

It appears the producers are allowing the Muppets to shine a little more than the last one. What's with Floyd's popularity all of a sudden? Groovy!

I suspected Steve was doing Floyd, but Bill is the voice of Janice? Wow! If that's him I would expect to see much more of her in the future. Groovy! They all do such a good job.

Alanna, I don't know what your source is on that cast info, but I'm not sure if it is correct.

I can't speak for who played who in this upcoming Studio DC special but I know that David Rudman voiced Janice in the first Studio DC special and Jerry Nelson (that's right, the Jerry Nelson) actually went into a studio to loop the lines for Floyd in the first Studio DC gig.

Aah - welln that would explain why we've all been saying "wow - that sounded like Jerry himself, can't figure out who it really was though"...turns out it actually WAS Jerry uncredited. Odd that they would go through the trouble of having him loop lines when it was basically one (two?) very short lines.

It not like totally don't like the Disney Channel kids, but can't other people guest star as well. I guess the Christmas special is more for me then. Can't wait to see Whoopi and the Muppets together again.
