CDE is a television network in the 2011 film The Muppets. When the Muppet gang comes back together, they pitch their idea for a telethon to the network executive, Veronica. She deems the Muppets as out of fashion in comparison to the channel's hit program Punch Teacher. However, after the show's sudden cancellation due to teacher complaints, she decides to let the Muppets fill the void on the condition that they get a celebrity host for their telethon.
According to the network's prime time schedule, shows on the network include: "The Bachelor Set," "Ker-Pow," "5th Ward Precinct Live," "Credit Card Club," "Different Families," In the Middle," "Grown Men," "Up Beat," "Nora & Nora," "Albany," "Twentyfourseven," "Have Camera, Will Travel," "That's Not My House!," "Estates," and "Scandals." Some of these titles parody actual programming from ABC, which is absent from the list of networks on the schedule.
