Muppets, Halifax

Like synchronized conmen two good friends of mine–who have never met yet both live in Halifax–have MSN’d me at the same time two Saturdays in a row now. At midnight. Drunk.
I’m guessing, taking into account the East Coast time difference, that drinking establishments close around 3am there.
And tonight, in-between the usual conversation (women, film) both made coincidental references to Jim Henson’s Muppets:
Friend 1
Did you ever watch the stuff Jim Henson did after the muppets?
he had his own show on for a while
No, Jim Henson post muppets?
Friend 1
