    "Make 'em Laugh: The Funny Business of America" looks like it could be a good one.


    And hosted by Billy Crystal.

    The result is a free-associative blend of conversations and comedy bits. The episode on family sitcoms opens with a clip of the Simpsons arguing around their dinner table, which is followed by an interview of the “Simpsons” creator Matt Groening (who praises the “Leave It to Beaver” character Eddie Haskell), which gives way to an interview with Norman Lear, who discusses the radio and television comedy pioneer Gertrude Berg.

    It'll be simultaneously released on DVD.

    I just hope there's at least an hour dedicated to the awesomeness that is Dane Cook . . .

    I just finished putting this in the DVR. I have a friend who received an advance of the DVD and he said it was great.
