“The Carol Burnett Show” channel launches on Channel 516, in the newly-launched Classic TV section of Pluto TV, available on all leading digital streaming devices and services, including Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Google Chromecast and more, as well as major smart TVs and game consoles. As a 24/7 linear channel, fans can tune in to watch curated programming anytime. Additionally, for fans looking to stream content on demand, episodes of “The Carol Burnett Show” will be available on Pluto TV as well as Shout! Factory TV.
Shout! Factory TV has been an indispensable content partner for Pluto TV since its inception. In addition to the “The Carol Burnett Show” Channel, Pluto TV also carries Shout! Factory TV and the Mystery Science Theater 3000 channel, both of which launched in 2015; TokuSHOUTsu, which launched in February 2020; and Johnny Carson TV, which launched last month.
Many of the episodes included in the linear streaming release have been rarely seen since the show’s original broadcast, more than 40 years ago. The comedy legend worked with Shout! Factory to find the long-lost masters of these episodes for their on-demand streaming debut on Shout! Factory TV and now, fans will be able to watch all of the show’s episodes and see the evolution of key characters and sketches.
Carol Burnett and her star cast of Vicki Lawrence, Tim Conway, Harvey Korman, and Lyle Waggoner were among the originators of the sketch comedy format. Cited as one of the best TV shows of all time by TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, TIME, Rolling Stone, and others, “The Carol Burnett Show” was coming to the end of its 11-year run just as “Saturday Night Live” was starting in 1975.
Over 11 inventive seasons, “The Carol Burnett Show” featured a who’s-who of stars from film, TV and music, including Betty White, Steve Martin, Carl Reiner, Lucille Ball, George Carlin, Cher, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Roddy McDowall, The Smothers Brothers, Bernadette Peters, Sammy Davis, Jr., Lily Tomlin, Bing Crosby, Ken Berry, Madeline Kahn, Steve Lawrence and Jim Nabors, among others.
