Drag star Sherry Vine -- the Elizabeth Taylor of downtown and the Gaga-spoofing YouTube queen -- is hosting a variety show for Here TV called She's Living for This.

Well, I'm living for Sherry's favorite variety shows of all-time, and she generously obliged me with them since we both love a high-concept theme Q&A.

Here they are, in Sherry's words. It's a variety show in itself!

3) Donny & Marie

"I know, I know, soooo wholesome. But they were so cute together. They didn't have the glitz or the same comedy [as choices 1 and 2], but they sang the best medleys! When the whole family was on, it was a screen full of teeth!"

2) Sonny & Cher

"A very close second. What I loved about The Sonny & Cher Show (and later The Cher Show) were the costumes, the self-deprecating humor, and the silly characters. Bob Mackie! Cher gave full fantasy glamour and was also funny. Go to YouTube and watch the clip with Cher, Tina Turner, Bette Midler, and Elton John -- out of control!"

1) Carol Burnett

"Without a doubt, my absolute favorite, and the one show that had the biggest influence on me growing up! I loved Carol's physical approach to comedy. She would do anything for a laugh! There were songs, parodies, sketches, guests, and Bob Mackie!"
