With any luck, the HSotD Ep04 writeup will be along tonight.
I remember that show. I didn't watch it every single week but I did watch it quite a lot. Conway was on once as a guest, and it really worked well. So they had him back on as a guest, and it still worked well. It was obvious he should be a regular, and Burnett invited him, and he accepted.
I think that the biggest reason that show worked so well overall was because Burnett is a team player. She didn't need to get the laughs. All she cared about was that the audience was laughing. And if they were, then it was all good as far as she wa concerned. I think that's how she was able to attract and keep such a sterling group.

As for Carol, she was at her best when she was getting feedback from an audience. That allowed her to fine-tune her voice, mannerisms, and timing for maximum effect. In movies, however, with no similar feedback from the crew, she just wasn't as good.
