Lady Gaga Muppets

Ah, Thanksgiving a day of gratitude, turkey, carbohydrates, parades and football. Lots and lots of football. This year, the television gods have decided to create a new Thanksgiving tradition: puppets. ABC is airing Lady Gaga and the Muppets' Holiday Spectacular, featuring the pop star doing her best to live up to the awesomeness of Debbie Harry on the original Muppet Show:


Coincidentally, on FOX a new episode of Glee features the New Directions gang singing with puppets.  It's a given that both programs will be clobbered by football on NBC, but which puppets will prove more popular among adults 18-49? Lady Gaga's new album has been underperforming, which is a strike against the Muppets special, but Kermit and Miss Piggy have a loyal following. Though Glee has struggled this season, Gleeks may enjoy seeing the felt versions of their favorite characters. Make your predictions then go enjoy your Thanksgiving!

    No chance imo for Lady Gaga to get 1.5. Steelers vs Ravens is a huge rivalry.

  • NBC Fan

    Lady GaGa and the Muppet Spectacular -1.5

    The X-Factor-1.0


  • Michael

    Football 7.0-7.5
    Gaga 1.2
    Glee 0.8-1.1


    Debbie Harry was the bomb! RAPTURE

    Voted for GaGA & Miss Piggy

    Blogging from Pgh–you so got it right! GO STEELERS!

    Seems like Muppets should be on earlier. The Modern Family rerun after Charlie Brown is not needed.

    I will watch to see the Muppets, but they aren’t really a big name anymore and haven’t been in a long time. And Gaga seems to have lost some popularity. I imagine Glee will win.

  • HalCapone

    Do the Steelers still play football?

  • Nick

    I think people just like to watch holiday specials on a holiday. My family turned on the Gaga/Muppets special and hardly watched it, I imagine a lot will do the same (and I’m sure many will actually watch it). Glee on the other hand…why would any family choose to watch that? lol

  • Networkman

    I’m afraid that Glee’s rating will drop to an embarrassing low. I don’t understand why it is airing on Thanksgiving. I can see it only garnering 1.0

  • Ekras

    I think they are both gonna flop. Lady Gaga=bad for children=low viewership. Glee=Worse for children=low viewership.

  • Jon

    What does the fox say?

  • Babar Suhail

    Both got a 0.9.

  • Ekras

    Told you all!
