The Muppets take 'Saturday Night Live'

The Muppets joined host Jason Segel on "Saturday Night Live."

It seems the Muppets are everywherelately, as the felt friends have been making the TV rounds to promote their upcoming, self-titled movie. Over the weekend, Kermit and the gang stormed yet another show — “Saturday Night Live.”

Jason Segel, one of the flesh and blood stars of “The Muppets,” served as the evening’s host. At least he tried to. It seemed the Muppets were under the impression they were all hosting the show, and they weren’t happy to learn otherwise.

“No, no, no, it makes perfect sense that they’d pick Jason, Piggy,” Kermit said with plenty of sarcasm. “I mean, when people go to a Muppet movie, they say, ‘Gee, I can’t wait to see the human!”

Segal tried to defend the casting decision.

“There’s a perfectly good reason why I’m hosting and not you,” he explained. “Namely, well for one, half you guys aren’t even wearing pants.”

“Hey, that’s below the belt!” Rowlf the Dog shot back.

Despite the fact that Kermit wasn’t really a host, he did manage to make one more appearance during the show when he joined Seth Meyers for the latest edition of “Really!?!”
