EW has exclusively learned Chelsea Handler will appear on ABC’s Muppet revival in a flirty guest spot, playing herself in the November 17th episode, “Too Hot to Handler.”
In the episode, the adorable, woebegone Scooter — the talent booker on Up Late with Miss Piggy — finds himself on the opposite end of Handler’s available signals. Scooter books his longtime TV crush onto Up Late, and sparks (though hopefully not the kind that can set fire to felt) will fly. Leave it to Handler to heat up late night beyond its usual temperature.
The amorous half-hour also finds Fozzie aiming to take his relationship with Becky to the next level, if not for a double date with Kermit and (sorry) Denise that may raise some red flags. Will any Muppet relationship be safe?!
The Muppets airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Guest starring: Chelsea Handler as herself and Riki Lindhome as Becky.
"Too Hot to Handler" story was written by Margee Magee and Angeli Millan and the teleplay was written by Shane Kosakowski and Franklin Hardy.
The episode was directed by Matt Sohn.
