Advertisements I thought the Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary special was very well done. A bit too much talking head from current comedic actors (but I just watched that part on QuickPlay mode)... While it DID have the same skits I'd seen a million times (dentist, gone with the wind parody, and the one that still cracks me up, the elephant skit -- I did NOT remember hearing about Carol's comeuppance, which they showed too)... it ALSO had a bunch of segments I have not seen a million times. I think it's kind of a shame that Neil Patrick Harris' variety show wasn't a success (but I admit I still have a couple of them on my Tivo!).. especially now with FF-ing, skipping something boring is easier, so you'd think a variety show could have something for everyone.. Though I guess Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show comes close to that too, with the game show bits and weird other segments (I FF through the vast vast majority of it).
