Carol BurnettCarol Burnett knew she'd make it in Hollywood because of Jimmy Stewart. "I never felt that I wouldn't be able to support myself in show business," Burnett said on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC). The legendary comic is promoting her new memoir, 'This Time Together: Laughter and Reflection,' and taking a walk down memory lane. Going to the movies and seeing Jimmy Stewart and Judy Garland always have a happy ending made Burnett optimistic about her career.

"It was in my mind that once I got to New York ... things would happen and in a funny way they did," Burnett said. "I was never scared and I was never cynical."
