ABC Cancels The Muppets

Having been forced to admit that it drastically overestimated America's desire for human–Muppet sex, ABC has canceled The Muppets after one season. It's a sad ending for the show that only months ago was the crown jewel (felt jewel?) of the network's fall slate. The show's ratings rapidly declined over the course of its only season, leading to a midseason shake up that replaced showrunner Bob Kushell with Galavant's Kristin Newman and rebooted the series' premise to include more "joy and friendship." Though the show ended better than it began, that was not enough to save it. Meep meep.
