    About The Carol Burnett Show
    While there’s no truth to the rumor that “CBS” ever stood for The Carol Burnett Show, for eleven seasons and 278 episodes, this star-studded extravaganza of sketch comedy, song and dance became entertainment central for the network and TV viewers. Burnett operated in a relaxed theater setting that allowed her to take questions, cut loose with her famous Tarzan yell and join fellow performers Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner to have a laugh or sing a song. The show received 25 Emmy Awards and eight Golden Globes, making it one of the most honored shows in television history.

    One of the funniest things ever. I laughed so hard I was tearing up and could hardly breathe. Those two were among the greats of comedy, but Tim Conway was in a class of his own.

    Reason I stopped watching this show. All the contrived laughter from these two over-rated, second string, hams. Felt I was being played for a sucker.

    Most of the skits Tim's been in he ad-libbed his lines. Which might explain why Harvey has trouble trying compose himself.
    RIP to these two.

      @Jamie Anybody Agree! McHale's Navy is my favorite comedy show. I always say that all the other military spoof comedies after McHale's were imitations!
