"60,000,000 Minutes"

60 Minutes is a news program that has run on CBS since September 24, 1968.


The report was rebroadcast in 1990 shortly after Jim Henson's death with a new introduction by Safer, in which he cited that The Muppet Show was "the most popular broadcast in the history of television."

Muppet Minute

In 1983, there were plans for a recurring segment called the "Muppet Minute", which would be 3D animated political cartoons featuring the Muppets. These didn't make it to the show due to the producers being unable to find a place in the show for them.[1]
