Since its original 1967-78 run, most viewers have only seen heavily chopped versions of “The Carol Burnett Show.” Burnett told The Associated Press this week, “The problem was, when we went into syndication all those years ago, they cut it down to a half- hour, and all the music was cut out.”
But now, 65 episodes have been revived and expanded, most to their original hour length. They are streaming for the first time on services including Tubi and the Roku Channel.
Grammy winner Brandi Carlile has a memoir coming in April. Her publisher calls the book an “evocative and piercingly honest” journey through the life that has shaped her “very raw art.”

According to Crown, Carlile will write about her “dysfunctional but loving family” and her collaborations with everyone from Elton John to Tanya Tucker.
