You might expect someone that struggled mightily in pretty much every single challenge, tossed out her tribe’s food supply, took the lead on building a terrible shelter, and then got voted out one day before a tribe shake-up that could have completely changed her fortunes in the game to have some regrets from her experience on Survivor: Cagayan. But not when then someone is nuclear engineer J’Tia Taylor. One day after being eliminated on the show, J’Tia called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to talk about how it all went wrong, and we mean All went wrong. »

On March 21, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and the rest of the gang are back for Muppets Most Wanted , their latest big screen adventure, which picks up just seconds after the end of 2011's The Muppets . This time, the Muppets are going on a world tour with just one little problem: Kermit winds up getting secretly replaced by an evil doppelganger, Constantine (played, coincidentally enough, by an actual criminal frog of the same name!) ComingSoon.net sat down with star Ty Burrell, who plays Jean Pierre Napeleon, an Interpol agent who teams with Sam Eagle in the hopes of finding out who is responsible for a rash of high-profile burglaries all across Europe. In the below video interview, Burrell reveals some surprising facts about his fine-feathered co-star and »
For a comedy with such an eclectic ensemble cast, it is a bit puzzling why Modern Family so rarely shifts the characters into new groups for storylines. “Other People’s Children” is an episode that forces the extended family to spend time with people we normally do not see them interact with. Here, as the title infers, the adults spend their day with children who are not their sons and daughters, to rather fresh results. Also, Adam DeVine recurs as lovable hick nanny Andy, an always welcome surprise. He gets one of the week’s funnier storylines and some time to bond with Ty Burrell’s Phil – a match that works from start to finish.
Cam and Mitch take Alex and Manny to a “retrospective on postwar abstract expressionism” at a modern art museum – although the three males try their best to seem as culturally astute as Alex. This subplot »

The home of Modern Family's Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) is for sale with an asking price of $2.35 million. Located in the Cheviot Hills area of West Los Angeles, the exterior of the 2,792-square-foot, four-bedroom house is regularly captured by the ABC camera crew, while the interior scenes are shot on a sound stage recreated in a similar layout to the home.

The Muppets return to the big screen later this month in the caper Muppets Most Wanted, and Disney has provided us with 20 minutes of fantastic behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film. Included in the video are great on set moments, the cast and Muppets recording some of the songs, some of the big stars that cameo in the film, Bret McKenzie singing one the songs, and so much more. I promise if you're a fan of The Muppets, you're going to love the video. Saying that, if you're trying to stay spoiler free, you might want to wait to watch this as some of the jokes/cameos will get spoiled. Directed by James Bobin, the follow-up finds the gang on a successful tour in Europe when Kermit gets mistaken for his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine, and thrown in jail. The human cast is led by Ricky Gervais as a »

Everyone — the lovers, the dreamers, and Oscar-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie — got dolled up to watch the world premiere of the Muppets Most Wanted alongside the titular stars last night in Hollywood.
“This is a bucket-list sort of item,” said Tina Fey, who plays a warden at the Siberian gulag where Kermit The Frog is wrongly imprisoned after his lookalike nemesis Constantine slaps a fake mole on his face in the Disney sequel hitting theaters March 21, when Entertainment Weekly caught up with her on the carpet at the El Capitan Theatre. “I met Lorne Michaels. I met John McEnroe. And now I have met the Muppets. »

Miss Piggy was a total ham at Tuesday night’s premiere of Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted,” where the A-list swine — ever the glamourpuss in pearls and a blue frock revealing a hint of décolletage — and her reluctant soul mate Kermit the Frog, au naturel in green, mingled with the movie’s human stars Tina Fey, Ty Burrell and Ricky Gervais at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theater.
Gervais, who plays the film’s bad guy, snapped selfies with Miss Piggy and Kermit, as well as Constantine, Kermit’s evil doppelganger in helmer-cum-scribe James Bobin’s sequel to 2011’s “The Muppets.”
For Fey, who most closely identifies with Scooter — “because he has a lot of backstage responsibilities and glasses” — starring opposite the Muppets was a “bucket list” item. »

Following her Thanksgiving special, Lady Gaga reunites with The Muppets on the “Muppets Most Wanted” soundtrack. Lady Gaga, her buddy Tony Bennett, and The Muppets perform the meta tune “We’re Doing A Sequel,” which follows Walter, Statler and Waldorf’s sure-to-be-hilarious “They’ve Ordered a Sequel.” Other singers on the soundtrack include Celine Dion, who performs with fellow diva Miss Piggy, Kermits and the whole Muppet gang for “Something So Right” (we’re guessing it’s not the Paul Simon tune of the same name), Josh Groban and Flight of the Conchords’s Jemaine Clement. Among the chestnuts on the album are Scooter and Pepe the King Prawn (remember the shrimp who felt up Lady Gaga in their atrocious Thanksgiving special?) on “Moves Like Jagger,” and Miss Piggy on “Macarena.” Also on the soundtrack, out March 24, are a number of actors who appear in the movie, including Tina Fey, »
If you're familiar with Ty Burrell's Emmy-winning, endlessly goofy work on "Modern Family," you might be shocked to learn he's all business in "Muppets Most Wanted." As Interpol inspector Jean Pierre Napoleon, he and associate Sam the Eagle furrow their considerable brows for 90 straight minutes in pursuit of the nefarious Kermit doppelganger Constantine. Thankfully, the seriousness of Jean Pierre's quest is offset by his extremely Frawnch, extremely Clouseau accent. In our interview with Burrell, we chatted about his favorite Muppets, if actors with great eyebrows are a dying breed, and the episode of "Seinfeld" that has followed him throughout his life. »

Director: James Bobin.
Running Time: 112 minutes.
Synopsis: While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves caught up in a European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog lookalike and his dastardly sidekick.
After their nostalgic 2011 comeback, the gang return with Muppets Most Wanted. As mad as a box of frogs, the entertainment value is upped in this spoof-like caper that is equally as ridiculous as it is enjoyable. As an adult, you’ll have no trouble with the forthright plot of mistaken identity. After being talked into a global tour by Ricky Gervais’ Dominic Badguy (“it’s French and pronounced Bad-gey”), we discover he’s in cahoots with an evil, Russian frog by the name of Constantine and they plan to steal art behind the cover of The Muppet Show.
Gervais is in perfect deadpan form, »

Sporting a title that can’t help but smack of wishful thinking, “Muppets Most Wanted” casts Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and company in a hokey transcontinental caper that conspicuously lacks the winning blend of irreverence and sincerity that made 2011′s “The Muppets” such a delight. From the first bars of “We’re Doing a Sequel,” an opening number that shamelessly acknowledges the inevitability and inferiority of most movie followups, this eighth feature showcase for Jim Henson’s deeply felt creations pokes fun at itself in a way that seems self-deflating rather than cheekily inspired. If its predecessor was more sheer fun (and, with $165 million worldwide, more commercial) than a Muppet movie had any right to be, then this is the picture that, likely comparable B.O. success aside, will cement a new generation’s notions of what this durable Disney franchise more typically has to offer: toe-tapping, moderately appealing family entertainment, »

Muppets Most Wanted arrives in what feels like no time at all since the long-awaited previous film. I was honestly quite shocked to see the screening invite in my inbox. After the twelve year wait for The Muppets, this is most welcome, though the quick turnaround of this film perhaps makes its arrival seem a little less special than previously. In addition, the total absence of Jason Segel, who proved to be an instrumental figure in getting the previous film off the ground with a starring and writing role, is perhaps not quite a cause for concern but certainly raises an eyebrow.
Any doubts about the film are quickly put to rest in the opening musical number, ‘We’re Doing a Sequel’, which sets the comedic tone for the »

Can this sequel live up to the pure joy of the first Muppets movie? Simon's still singing that last song...
If ever a film was worth it for the opening number, then Muppets Most Wanted is it. A glorious Bret McKenzie song that's up to the standard of anything in the last film - from which this film picks up directly - it gets the movie going with a few minutes of concentrated in-jokes, madness and sheer brilliance. Arguably, the rest of the film never quite gets to that level again, but conversely, the bar is set so ridiculously high within minutes that it's hardly surprising.
Muppets Most Wanted is no slouch after that outstanding beginning though (the closing number alone will bring tears of joy to anyone who's ever given two hoots about The Muppets). It has to work harder in some ways than the last film, »
It’s hard to make a comeback in Hollywood — unless you’re swine.
In which case, the industry may embrace you. Just ask Miss Piggy. Nearly 40 years after she made her showbiz debut, the diva has never been more in demand. She recently appeared on the final episode of Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night,” singing a melancholy song with her Muppets pals; dished about her love life on “The Bachelor”; and sipped Lipton tea in an Oscars ad. The weekend of the ceremony, she popped up on an E! fashion segment, dressed in a frock designed by Vivienne Westwood, and attended a pre-Academy Awards QVC party, where she entered via cabana lifted by four shirtless hunks. Then the situation got a little sticky. According to tabloid reports, Piggy shoved Joan Rivers into a cake backstage, and Rivers emerged at the party with frosting in her hair.
Like any shrewd publicity-seeking celeb, »

You hate to see a legendary couple argue, but Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy established themselves as the new Burton and Taylor when we interviewed them at the "Muppets Most Wanted" junket. A shame they couldn't be maintain professionalism like their castmates Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and the nefarious frog czar Constantine (interviews coming soon!), but I'm hoping they'll settle their differences with a new duet of "Rainbow Connection" or at least a Broadway revival of "Private Lives." "Muppets Most Wanted" opens March 21. »
