* GirlsNeedRoleModels: This seems to be at least part of the reason the retool makes Piggy much less antagonistic. The episode "A Tail of Two Piggies" works that into the story (as Pigs Need Role Models, but the points about negative body-images and being proud of who you are are certainly [[{{Applicability}} applicable]]).

Watch the trailer [[http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2391650329/ here.]] The test pilot was apparently extremely well-received, and was chosen to be screened at various summer festivals as part of ABC's Summer Block Party, as well as San Diego Comic Con during the show's panel. Eventually, due to popular demand from the Comic Con screening, ABC made the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2B5d-8H588 pilot]] available on their Website/YouTube channel. Following the 2015 winter hiatus, the second half of Season 1 has been given something of a retool, mainly by letting the other Muppets get involved with ''Up Late'' in front of the camera as opposed to behind the scenes.

Unfortunately, the retool failed to improve the show's ratings, notably performing ''lower'' than the pre-hiatus episodes. After months of speculation of the show's fate, ABC confirmed it would not return for a second season.
