Here are a couple more. The way they tried to crack eachother up while they were recording the live show was classic. Here are two of my favorites, although I couldn't find the full version of the second skit below. We saw both Tim and Harvey do a show in Toledo about 5 years ago before Harvey died, they were very good together.

Tim Conway and Harvey Korman

The cost for the DVD's advertised on the late night infomercial for the Carol Burnett Show would be well worth it!

Wow... is this the we are too stubborn to like anything new thread? There are plenty of good shows on currently. You mostly just have to give them a chance. I mean really?, Carol Burnett and Dean Martin? Nothing has been good since then?
Hill St. Blues, The Cosby show, NYPD Blue, Seinfeld, The Sopranos...just to name a very few!

Yeah Hill Street Blues was a good show, so was Miami Vice. I can't think of any   recent shows that are as good.
Two and a Half Men is good.

When was the last time those shows gave you a good belly laugh?
Maybe Cosby...is he still on?  :-[

Actually I just caught about 10 minutes of an old Cosby show rerun last week, and laughed...so pretty recently!  I think 2 and a half men is great, has a dry spell once in a while but over all is current to the times and funny.

I loved Northern Exposure . . . . . Alaska is a terrific place and while the show was not filmed there the spirit of the people are reflected and I fell in love with the place and people while I lived there.
