Muppets Invade NBC's "Today"

The Muppets are planning to invade "The Today Show" next week. A group of Muppets will be taking over the show for half an hour during the 8:00am hour of the program on Thursday, November 13, 2008. "The Today Show" is a morning news and talk show broadcasted nationwide on NBC - check local listings for details.

The Muppets will appear on the program to promote the opening of the new Muppet Whatnot Workshop at FAO Schwarz - they are even planning on showcasing Whatnot versions of the show's hosts! The Muppets have made numerous appearances on "The Today Show" over the past 40 years. "The Today Show", which has been on NBC since 1952, is curretly hosted by Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira, with Al Roker, Ann Curry, and Natalie Morales.

So set the VCRs, program the TiVo, and don't forget to watch the Muppets when they take over "The Today Show" on Thursday, November 13th.

I woke up on time, and let me tell you something: When I heard that the muppets would "invade" NBC's "Today" show, they literally did! I was laughing my head off as Bobo the bear (the security officer) wouldn't let the normal people in! When the muppet version of Al Roker talked to some people, the people he tried to talk to wouldn't talk to him! Seriously, how hilarious can you get? On a scale of 1 to 10, this 30 minute segment is off the scale! A 20 at least!
