NBC Developing Jim Henson Studios Puppet Comedy (Video)

Announcement comes after Muppets' "Saturday Night Live" guest appearance

The announcement comes two days before a new Muppets movie, "The Muppets," debuts in theaters. (In the terrifying photo above, Kermit arrives at the film's premiere Nov. 12 at Hollywood's El Capitan Theater.)

The movie's human lead, Jason Segel, hosted "SNL" on Saturday, where he was forced to share the stage with his new friends — though he refused to relinquish hosting duties.
