Catch some Burt Reynods memories this weekend


We can catch some quick Burt Reynolds reruns this weekend,

After Reynolds' death -- Thursday (Sept. 6), at 82, of cardiac arrest -- Antenna TV (a digital channel) quickly scheduled some of his visits to Johnny Carson. Another digital channel, MeTV, is rerunning some of his "Gunsmoke" episodes. And CMT scheduled "Bandit," a documentary about the "Smokey & The Bandit" movies.

Those are the ones that solidified Reynolds' image as the good-ol'-boy Southern hero. Ironically, he was originally a Northerner.
