Attention fans of Kanye-related nonsense: GET EXCITED. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the popular blogger-musician is hard at work with Comedy Central on a variety show hilariously described as "hip hop meets the Muppets." Tentatively titled Alligator Boots, the show will be hosted each week by a different celebrity guest and feature puppets, obviously, along with music produced by Kanye and Rhymefest. Boots is being considered by Comedy Central to air in 2009 and would possibly compete against the rumored reboot of the actual Muppet Show (which likely wouldn't stand a chance). We anxiously await the announcement of 50 Cent's puppet-starring TV show.
