    Great news – I’ll be watching. Although, I wanted to point out to you [before an avalanche of comments pour in] that the Carol Burnett show was a Variety Show, featuring both singing/dancing and comedy routines and skits.

    Carol and Tim played in many of those famous skits. However, to use the phrase “her eponymous skit show”, although I know you didn’t mean any harm in the phrase, may not fully describe the breath and strength of that pioneering and standard-bearing variety program.

    Just wanted to mention that – a minor point, but Carol’s show was [is still] nothing short of legendary.
