1996's "The Dana Carvey Show" lasted only seven episodes, but it's fondly remembered by comedy fans, not least because it proved something of a Ground Zero for talent for years to come. The Fox sketch-show vehicle helped give big breaks to cast members Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert, as well as featuring Louis CK, Charlie Kaufman, Robert Smigel and "Moral Orel" creator Dino Stamatopolous among its writing staff, a list of names that perhaps only the similarly short-lived "Freaks and Geeks" can compete with, in terms of watching big names early in their careers.
