Starting April 14 MeTV is showing episodes from the first five years of The Carol Burnett Show. From the way the show is scheduled these are not edited down to half-hour versions but are the hour long versions. Now how much has been edited to make room for more commercials I could not say. I do not have a way to view MeTV to check them out. The shows are running six times a week. Sundays at 10:30 pm and M-F at 11:00 pm. The episode guide on the MeTV website does not correspond to any known episode guide for the series. Plus there seems to be no rhyme nor reason to the order the episodes are being aired. Tonight’s episode has Gloria Loring, Tim Conway and Lucille Ball as guests. The MeTV episode guide has this listed and the 3rd episode but with an original air date as 11/20/67. The episode guide that I have listed the 11/20/67 episode as the 10th episode and the guests were not Tim Conway, Lucille Ball and Gloria Loring but Juliet Prowse and Martha Raye. The Tim Conway, Lucille Ball and Gloria Loring episode was the 4th episode and aired 10/2/67. I don’t know where MeTV got this episode guide but it looks to be all messed up.
Anyway, I just thought that anyone who can tape these episodes might want to do so since this is the first time these have been broadcast since their original airing. I don’t know exactly how many of the first five seasons of shows will ultimately be aired but get them while you can. There may be several shown that have not been released on DVD.
