"Hostile Makeover" is the second episode of the 2015 television series The Muppets.
Miss Piggy is angry that she doesn't have a date to the People's Choice Awards, so Kermit sets her up with Josh Groban who fills her head with ideas on how to make Up Late better. Meanwhile, Fozzie is invited to a party at Jay Leno's house, and Bobo competes with the Newsman in trying to sell cookies for his daughter's troop.

- The phrase "Hostile Makeover" was previously used in episode 205 of Muppets Tonight in reference to the extreme changes made to KMUP by Ernst Stavros Grouper.
- The list of celebrities that the Muppets try to court for a date with Miss Piggy include Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Cruise, Randall E, Justin Timberlake, Jeff Goldblum, Zac Efron, Harrison Ford, George Clooney, Prince William, Denzel Washington, Bono, Keanu Reeves, Chris Evans, Gérard Depardieu, Matt Damon, David Beckham, Brad Pitt, James Franco, and Russell Crowe. Bob Kushell provided Yahoo! with a list of potential celebrity names for some of them:
- Jeff Goldblum (“Goldbliggy”): “Goldblum is a debonair ladies’ man who knows how to treat a woman with respect. So, exactly the kind of man Miss Piggy could control.”
- Matt Damon (“Damiggy”): “Damon and Miss Piggy both enjoy gaining weight for movie roles.”
- Gerard Depardieu (“Depardiggy”): “The man is French. ‘Nuff said.”
- Brad Pitt (“Braggy”): “They have nothing in common. But oh, how Piggy would love to take Angelina Jolie down a peg.”
- James Franco (“Friggy”): “Franco is an eccentric actor who changes with each role. Piggy is an egocentric talk show host who changes between commercials.”
- David Beckham (“Beck-ham”): “Beckham would get more kicks with Piggy than in all the World Cups he’s ever played.”
- Lips speaks his first line in over thirty years in this episode: "And we love some gas station sushi!"
