Episodes three and five are switched. Proof can be found in the episode descriptions, as well as the fact that the guest won an Emmy for their episode 5 performance.

You'll need to provide valid sources for starters. Also be aware that we list things in aired order so if they were mistakenly aired in the wrong order they may already be correct even if they aren't in the intended order.

Hello,

I did a quick, but extensive, survey of all of the guides that I could find. What I found was that hardly any two guides matched up on the first 5 episodes of season 1. Muppet Central gave me the answer to the dilemma. It seems that there was a East Coast (NY) airing and a West Coast (LA) airing. Most often, the episode that aired on the East Coast, aired on the West Coast a week later. It looks as if whoever entered the Season 1 information in TheTVDB, used the Muppet Central listing for the East Coast as they all matched. The one interesting anomoly I found was with one of the episodes in question, the Rita Moreno episode. Seems that it may not have aired on the East Coast as the only airdate for it was October 9, 1976 (LA). So it looks like all of the dates used here are East Coast dates, except the Rita Moreno episode.
As such, I have left all of the episodes as they were, deciding not to make these requested changes.

Mark
