"Pig Girls Don't Cry" is the first episode of the 2015 series The Muppets.
The series begins with Miss Piggy hosting a late night show, but Kermit is having difficulties as her show's executive producer. Miss Piggy is furious that Kermit booked Elizabeth Banks as a guest on her late night talk show, and demands that he take her off. When Kermit goes behind her back and has Banks guest on the show anyway, Piggy tells him why she did not want her on the show. Meanwhile, Fozzie has trouble with his girlfriend's parents. Musical guests Imagine Dragons perform their new single "Roots."
