"Swine Song" is the eleventh episode of the television series The Muppets.

The series returns after a two month hiatus following a mid-season finale in a new timeslot (airing on Tuesdays at 8:30PM on ABC). The plot of the episode reflects the show's retooling following the addition of new showrunner Kristin Newman.


Once the crew returns to work from hiatus, the network president enlists a new branding guru named Pache to revamp “Up Late with Miss Piggy.” After consulting with Key and Peele, Kermit and Piggy begin to realize that the show doesn’t need slick gimmicks, and they make their crew a bigger part of the show. Meanwhile, Denise suspects that Kermit might still have feelings for Piggy. Also, Piggy brings home a penguin who starts to bond with Uncle Deadly.
