OMG. What else is there to say?
After a wobbly beginning, Carol Burnett has come on strong in recent weeks to the complete bafflement of CBS officials. At the outset, the network just about wrote off the rubbery-faced comedienne’s hour as one of those mistakes that occasionally (make that frequently) happen in the television schedules. Carol had bombed out in her most recent series (The Entertainers) and seemed destined to go the guest - star route or as star an occasional special, despite her undoubted comedic talents. The early audience ratings have left the CBS brass completely confused. Brash Burnett is riding high and is giving I Spy and Big Valley the toughest competition they have yet encountered in the 10 o’clock Monday-night time slot (the show is carried here on Channel 7 on Saturday evenings on six-day delay.) Last Saturday, for instance, Miss Burnett couldn’t miss. She had Lucille Ball aboard in a riotous sequence as rival rent-a-car clerks and as suspicious secretaries in a peculiar Spanish-German restaurant.
Carol beating out The Big Valley? I can only imagine what F2’s thinking about that right about now…
…for even making me think about it.
If you aren’t into recording yourself, you can do this: Draw a “Happy Birthday Carol” picture for Carol. It can be beautiful, silly, a picture of her, anything. The woman’s a comedienne, you don’t have to be an “artist” I’m just looking for anything of that nature to include in a video we are making for her birthday. If you want to include a picture you created either on your computer or by the artistic skill you possess, make it and post it here on tumblr and tag it #Burnett Birthday and I’ll include it if I get it in time. I’d need it no later than tomorrow. Anything will do! Let’s give Carol a great gift!!!
- Did Barbara really start smoking at age 9?
- That is the general consensus. I believe she admitted that in an interview at some point.

And due to AMAZING circumstances that will place me in the vicinity, I may be doing this with the backdrop of the gorgeous mountains of BELLEVILLE, ARKANSAS—birthplace of Nanny Mae White and Ina Louise Creighton Burnett. Carol’s ancestral home. I hope it works out, because how friggin perfect would that be? For real.
Me! (Unfortunately the issue of the birthday video was not discussed)
