Following a rousing opening number by the Muppets, Kermit’s better half — understandably out of breath, given what she’d just done — walked over to NBC correspondents Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie, only to be introduced to America as “a winded Miss Piggy.”

If this had been a Real Housewives reunion, Piggy would have snatched Guthrie’s wig — oh, they’d both be wearing wigs in this scenario — and given her the business. But because it’s live TV, and the show must go on, Piggy decided to be the bigger person. (Though you know they had words off camera.)
