"Nightly News" and the Muppets



  if you missed "Nightly News" tonight, then you missed an interesting detour to TV history - Jim Henson's decoration of a set of pipes that was apparently the beginning of the Muppets.

  Here's the piece - as Brian Williams gives Frank Oz a tour of the closet where these pipes were painted. (Oz is the great director and one of the founders of the Muppet kingdom).

  But it's still interesting...
