The half-hour variety show featured The Cheetah Girls performing a Bollywood dance number with Miss Piggy; Selena Gomez learning the art comedy from Fozzie Bear; Moises Arias and Jake T. Austin learning the art of being a critic from Statler and Waldorf; Demi Lovato singing with Beaker; Jason Earles and Jason Dolley visiting the Swedish Chef's craft services table; David Henrie jamming with Floyd on the guitar; and much more.

So be sure to set the VCR and mark your calendars so you don’t miss this all new "Studio DC: Almost Live!" hosted by Selena Gomez . And I will be sure to keep you updated on the future of "Studio DC" and the Muppets as information becomes available.

Another ok show, but still not what it should be. Must admit though Selena Gomez was better then those twins from the first one. I think this show could be a lot better. I wouldn't say take out the Disney Channel kids completely, but I think less of them would be a step in the right direction. Well in the end it was better than the first. So hopefully it will get even better in future episodes.

To quote Kermit after seeing Gonzo's report about Teddy Roosevelt being 100 ft tall which turns into a rambling discussion about Sci-Fi movies with Rizzo in front of a statue of the president during the 1993 Clinton Inauguration Special: "Er, Uh, You have to admit it was a little better. (whimper)"

This was better than the first one for sure, and I really loved seeing and slightly hearing scooter a bit, adding fozzie and beaker into the mix helped allot also.
the only thing that botherd me is when they would say something and then *insert plug for tv show or movie here* It's like ok we get it!

I was disappointed in this particular edition of Studio DC. I preferred the first one; Kermit dancing with Ashley Tisdale to Bop to the Top and then using all the song titles from High School Musical was great; as well as Miley Cyrus performing with the Electric Mayhem.

This newest edition left something to be desired; it felt like the show was more a plug for Wizards of Waverly Place than anything else. Also, the talking between acts seemed forced.

However, I will say this: the highlights for me were Piggy trying to outdance the Cheetah Girls and Beaker accompanying Demi on "This is Me." That was pricesless.

It appears to me that Disney tween fans preferred the first special because of its heavier-hitting Disney kid brands while fans of the Muppets preferred this second special for permitting the Muppets a bit more breathing room. There weren't as many jarring quick cuts breaking down the Muppets momentum and charm this time out. It also appeared that all the stars were happy to be working with the Muppets (unlike the underwhelming reception from a couple key actors from the first special).

This is not the best Muppet project, but it better markets them for what and who they are to a target audience. Also, everyone seemed to be having a good time this time. That really showed.

This aint for us old fans. Let it be what it is.

I agree with Jessica the duet with Beaker and that girl Demi was a highlight. I don't know much about her, but out of the Disney Channel kids. Demi and that other girl Selena seem to be better than the others.

What song did David Henrie and Floyd Pepper make a parody of? What was the name, no one in the world remembers the name, but only the riff
