The show that I have to stop and watch every time I come across it these days is “No, You Shut Up!”
Host Paul F. Thompkins discusses current events with a panel of puppets who seem to be forgotten relics from the Henson Creature Shop storage shelves. There is usually a human guest also, though he or she is usually forced to answer only in rap, or while doing impressions, or something else very silly.
The show is on the Fusion Network, which probably has other shows but I don’t know what they are. I don’t know exactly when the official air time of the show is either, I just find it while flipping channels, and when I do I have to stop and watch.
I do know that the Henson company does have a role in producing “NYSU!,” a credit at the end says “Henson Alternative.” Maybe some of the younger people are making it without telling Brian Henson.
Or maybe Jim has…returned?
