It seems that television audiences agree! Since it's premier on October 15, 1951, it has never been off the air, and is seen by 40 million Americans each year.
In addition to being frequently shown in reruns on television, the series is also available on a Complete Series DVD. While reading about this, I just discovered that they include colorized footage, the lost pilot, the not often broadcast hour long episodes, and a never released full length movie. A dream for Lucy fans!
And for those of us who can never really get enough of Lucy, there is the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Center in Jamestown, New York. I have never been there, but I am thinking that a visit is in order soon, as we have family in that area. I'll be sure to tell you all about it!
Do you have a favorite sitcom as well? Please share; I'm always in need of a good laugh, and I would love to hear!
