Statler and Waldorf rate the show like Olympic judges. First, they give Kermit a two. Then, they give the opening a three, but the audience demands they bring it down to a zero. All of the Muppets get low scores (though Fozzie’s “One” is a compliment by them), and Gonzo even gets a minus six. The Muppets think it’s just a tough audience, but Diana Ross gets tens every time which gives her high scores.
