'Muppets' trailer will make you 'Green With Envy'

Don't be fooled by that movie preview for the upcoming romance "Green With Envy"—it's actually a trailer for the much-anticipated "The Muppets."

The trailer, which made its debut in theaters over the weekend, kicks off by telling the love story of Mary and Gary (Amy Adams and Jason Segal), a sweet, small-town couple who head to Hollywood with dreams of making it big. Though they hope to go the distance, they find their relationship challenged when Gary forgets their anniversary.

Cue a sappy love song and a montage of the couple pining for each other, laughing and dancing before the narrator announces the film's cast: "Jason Segal. Amy Adams… Kermit the Frog?"

No goodbye, Oprah says, just 'until we meet again'

No goodbye, Oprah says, just 'until we meet again'

Watch "Showbiz Tonight's" one-hour special on Oprah's final farewell at 11pm ET/PT tonight on HLN.

Before the stage went dark on her long-running talk show Wednesday, Oprah Winfrey still had a few more lessons to share.

Instead of inviting one last super-special guest to appear, giving away a car or doing one more incredible makeover, Winfrey opted to take the finale of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" back to basics:  It was just Oprah, giving what she called “a love letter” to her audience.

"This last hour is about me saying thank you; it is my love letter to you," she said. "I want to leave you all with the lessons that anchor my life. Every day that I stood here I knew that this was exactly where I was supposed to be. There was many a day I came to work tired, but I showed up because I knew that you were waiting, you were waiting for whatever we had to offer. That’s why I never missed a day in 25 years."
