Carol Burnett was on hand in Hollywood on Wednesday, April 17, when the intersection adjacent to her high school alma mater was re-named "Carol Burnett Square" to honor the comedian's success and contributions to the entertainment industry.

"It's one of the deepest I've ever received in my life," Burnett told OTRC.com's parent company, KABC Television, at the ceremony about the honor. "In fact, it's more personal than anything I've ever received."

The square is located near Hollywood High School at Selma Avenue and Highland Avenue in Hollywood.

Burnett, 79, also had another reason to celebrate on Wednesday, her new memoir "Carrie and Me," which was released earlier this month, is already a New York Times Best Seller.

"Two wonderful personal things today. I'm just going to mark this day with a gold pin on my calendar," Burnett said.

Burnett, an Emmy winner, is likely best known for her sketch comedy series "The Carol Burnett Show," which ran from1967 to 1978. She has made recent guest appearances on shows such as "Desperate Housewives," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Glee." In 2011, Burnett reprised her role as Verla Grubbs on "All My Children."
