Plot Synopsis

On Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 8-10pm ET/PT, CBS premiered "The Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special," a two-hour special that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Carol Burnett's classic, award-winning comedy series, featuring Burnett, original cast members and special guests. Filmed on Stage 33 at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, the show's original soundstage, Burnett reminisces about her favorite sketches, Q&As with the studio audience, guest stars, her memorable wardrobe and bloopers, as well as the tremendous effect the show continues to have on television today as a true pioneer of sketch comedy. The special also features original cast members Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner, costume designer Bob Mackie, as well as other comedians, comic actors and friends, including Jim Carrey, Kristin Chenoweth, Stephen Colbert, Harry Connick Jr., Bill Hader, Jay Leno, Jane Lynch, Bernadette Peters, Maya Rudolph and Martin Short, among others, who join Burnett to discuss how the revolutionary series paved the way for them and impacted their careers.

"I can't believe how fast the time went, and what makes me the happiest is that so much of the funny stuff we did still holds up today, and we can share it with generations to come," said Carol Burnett. "What a great ride!"
