No, You Shut Up! is an American news talk show on the Fusion channel that was created by David Javerbaum (the former head writer and executive producer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) and produced by The Jim Henson Company under its Henson Alternative banner.
The show details Paul F. Tompkins and a panel of four different puppets (played by different members of the Miskreant Puppets from Puppet Up! as well as puppets from other shows) debating about the different issues of the day from their unique perspective until they get too angry to discuss them any further. There were some later episodes that have the fourth panelist being an actual celebrity.
When the show gets back from commercial, it will show footage of what happens during the break (like a panelist talking to the camera and other antics during the break) or a heated discussion in "Crab Fire" where a Red Republican Crab and a Blue Democrat Crab discusses minor issues.
There is also a segment on the show called "No, You Open Up" where Paul F. Tompkins interviews a panelist.
By Season Three, the show was reworked to detail different segments before the round table discussions. During some round table discussions, the featured celebrity panelists will partake in a game with the other panelists.
