OOPS!

Carol Burnett 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.
