On October 15, 1951, Lucy, Ricky, Ethel, and Fred were introduced to the world. The rest is history! Happy 64th Anniversary, I Love Lucy! Over 60 years have passed since the first episode, “The Girls Want to Go to a Nightclub,” debuted on a Monday night on CBS at 9pm, but Lucy still remains a worldwide phenomenon to this day.
Originally running from 1951 to 1957, I Love Lucy is often regarded as one of the most influential sitcoms in history and was voted in 2012 as the ‘Best TV Show of All Time’ in a survey conducted by ABC News and People Magazine. Lucy has never been off the air, and every minute of the day someone, somewhere in the world, is laughing at the timeless antics of Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred!
“I’m happy that I have brought laughter because I have been shown by many the value of it in so many lives, in so many ways.” – Lucille Ball
