received a public apology Wednesday after a Carol Burnett Show
tribute was left out of CBS's recent 75th anniversary special. In an open letter published Wednesday in Variety
and The Hollywood Reporter
, producer Gil Cates
expressed his regret that "during the excitement of a 'live 3 hour television event' the wonderful film piece we prepared... was not aired. Sometimes goofs happen." A skipped cue reportedly led to the glitch. Now that that's over with, who's gonna apologize to Ana Alicia
and Co. for giving Falcon Crest
such short shrift? Talk about rude.
