It’s the golden anniversary for one of the most iconic shows in the annals of television.
Carol Burnett was front-and-center among a laundry list of celebrities to honor the 50th anniversary of her comedy program, The Carol Burnett Show, at CBS Television City in Los Angeles on Tuesday, taped for a future special in two months.
The 84-year-old comedy icon did her trademark tug of the ear as she posed for pictures on the red carpet, in a black gown with a lacy top and black flats, sporting her short auburn locks.

A number of Carol’s co-stars were snapped at the event, including Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner, as well as show business stalwarts such as Jay Leno, Harry Connick Jr., Tom Selleck and Pat Boone.

‘We are very proud of the show’s significant place in [CBS’s] legacy, as well as in television history, and we look forward to this prime-time celebration of incredible talent, led by the incomparable Carol Burnett.’
