IN THE PREVIOUS POST YOU READ CAROL BURNETT'S COMMENTS ABOUT HOW VARIETY SHOWS CAN STILL GO ON. AND THEN THIS WAS ANNOUNCED THIS MORNING!!!
EXCLUSIVE: Saturday Night Live alumna Maya Rudolph is returning to NBC with a new variety series project produced by SNL honcho Lorne Michaels, this time in primetime. The network has ordered a pilot for a variety series headlined by Rudolph. I hear the plan is to air the pilot as a special after the Winter Olympics. Rudolph is executive producing with Michaels, Erin David and Dave Becky. The project has been in the works for several months.
