Does anyone miss the variety shows of yesteryear? Which ones did you enjoy in the 60s, 70s and 80s and why?

I really enjoyed the Ed Sullivan and Carol Burnett shows. Why haven't networks ressurrected this tried and true formula for audience entertainment?

    I do miss some. I use to watch Ed Sullivan, The Red Skelton show, Merv Griffith and Mike Douglas (I know these were talk shows), The Dean Martin Show with the ding-a-ling singers, And of course Carol Burnett and Sonny & Cher. Tony Orlando & Dawn and Donny & Marie.

    yes so very much and loved those shows you mentioned, plus Dean Martin Show, Red Skelton Show to name a few more. Those shows are gone for good, but not forgotten.
