Lady Gaga’s The Muppets Thanksgiving Special tanked

Although Lady Gaga’s 2011 Thanksgiving Special did okay, her Thanksgiving Special this year with The Muppets was, in the words of Waldorf and Statler, a “real turkey.”


Lady Gaga and the Muppets Holiday Spectacular tanked in both the reviews and the ratings, pulling in 3.6 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49. For comparison, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving aired before Lady Gaga’s special and still pulled in 5.3 million. The real winner was a reairing of Ravens vs. Steelers on NBC, which pulled in 17.6 millions viewers and a 5.6 rating among adults 18-49.

We have a feeling that this this snafu won’t affect The Muppets’ new movie, which is due out in 2014.
