12/14 not bad at all because I did so well on Vicki Lawrence. Thank you so much MeTV for sharing this because I love watching Mama's Family and The Carol Burnett show.

I really can NOT believe that a network that features ALL OLD 📺 shows would ONLY
have Mama's Family for ONLY 1 hour per week❓❓❓ Are there ANY single episodes that are CURRENTLY AVAILABLE to watch through MeTV❓❗If NOT through MeTV, are there any other TV or streaming companies that broadcast episodes of Mama's
Family ❓❓
ANY HELP you can offer, I would
greatly appreciate as I enjoy watching Mama's Family every day.
Thank you again.

I've been watching some of the Burnett shows recently that include the musical numbers. I'd forgotten that Vicki became a pretty good dancer.

I gotta tell you this and it's a shame. I mean I even went to: Read up on her and when I got done I still only knew close to 0 (-1). It even used Post-it® Super Sticky Notes on the inside of my arm and hand. For some reason none of my Sticky Notes matched up with the quiz . I looked upside down, front and backwards and nadda . Alas I only got 7 of 14. A whole heaping 50%. Yeah even with inside information . So Win, Lose or Draw she was certainly funny . What can I tell you .
