    Beginning today METV has started showing episodes from the early seasons of the show at 11 PM eastern time. They are still cut to a half hour slot. Tonight's episode used the original Carol Burnett Show opening, not Carol and Friends.

    Are they showing skits that aren't released on dvd yet?

    There is not a list of the shows that are included as far as I know. So far they have shown two first season shows but if they are going from oldest to newest they are not showing all the first season shows. Last night was the Halloween episode with Diahann Carroll and the Smothers Brothers. Richard Kiley (Broadway Man of La Manchia) was announced as a guest at the top of the show but in the edited 1/2 hour he only appeared in the closing credits signing Carol's autograph book.

    Don Adams ep is on now. Looks like he doing a parody of the Tonight Show.
    Was there a bit at the beginning with Carol speaking to the audience?
    This ep didn’t have one of those.

    This was the first episode of this new to METV batch that did not include audience questions. Whether the original full length episode had the audience questions, I don't know.

    I noticed that these new to METV episodes are syndicated by CBS. The Carol and Friends episodes were not. The show is not currently listed in the CBS syndication bible.

    It apparently did.
    This is one of the lost eps that Amazon has up on their free for members Prime viewing.

    We seem to be running two topics on these Metv airings.
