Here is how the Smithsonian describes the program:  
Mel Brooks, Johnny Carson, and Carol Burnett—all recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors—made it look easy, but nothing is harder than comedy that seems effortless. Artists of the funny bone, they lifted our spirits and eased the night, poked fun at the powerful, imitated the familiar, made flights of wild imagination and thought-provoking spoofs. They made us fall over laughing while hitting the bull’s eye of their comic targets.
Join Sara Lukinson, filmmaker and writer for the Kennedy Center Honors for 38 years, for an evening full of laughs as she covers the remarkable lives of these legendary entertainers and screens clips of their hilarious performances.

Here is how the Smithsonian describes the program:  
In some areas of the world, called Blue Zones, the people who reside there live longer than the average person. Many of them have lower rates of cancer and heart disease, their stress levels are minimal, and their happiness levels rate high.
So what do these people living near or in several towns in California, Greece, Japan, Costa Rica, and Sardinia have in common? Find out what you can do to better align your lifestyle with those of Blue Zone inhabitants—without having to relocate. Should you drink a glass of wine for dinner every night, or walk 10,000 steps daily? Dr. John Whyte, WebMD’s chief medical officer, shares practical tips for longer lives—in your zone and beyond.
