Much can be said how "Laugh-In" was in sad decline by late 1972. And it's true it wasn't the same as it was when it first started.
But what a difference a guest star can make.
William Conrad, who had a hit show on CBS, "Cannon," clearly showed his comedic chops. If you see this episode, be sure to see the skit where he dons different hats at a small NBC affiliate. It is hand down one of THE funniest skits, if not the No. 1 funniest skit, in the show, ever. Most of the time, the show's amusing, especially given how it's topical, but this skit is pretty timeless--and incredibly manic! Mr. Conrad also MORE than holds his own in the rest of the show, too. It makes me wonder what it would have been like had he been a series regular.
And speaking of William Conrad, he seems more known for serious crime dramas. However, remember also that he was INDEED the narrator for "Rocky and Bullwinkle." What a truly funny man!
Well worth a watch!
