"Carol Burnett: My Personal Best." J2 Communications. $29.95. Different media create different expectations. During its 11-year run on CBS, "The Carol Burnett Show" always managed to come up with one or two comedy sketches each week that were far funnier than 90% of the sitcoms on the air. Now Burnett has packaged some of her favorites on two 60-minute cassettes for the home video market. Laying out cold cash for something that formerly came free and that has been taken out of its original surroundings alters the experience, however: On the one tape reviewed, only the "Gone With the Wind" parody qualified as a classic; the other five were well within the range of "The Tracey Ullman Show." Information: (213) 474-5252. ** 1/2
