TV Shows - Lucy Show, The

The Lucy Show was a television series which ran on CBS from 1962 until 1968. It was Lucille Ball's follow-up to I Love Lucy. A significant change in cast and premise for the 1965-66 season divides the program into two distinct eras; aside from Ball, only Gale Gordon, who joined the program for its second season, remained. For the first three seasons, Vivian Vance was the costar.

1 The Lucy Show is a classic and has held up after all these years. The series was never out of the top 10 show for its' six year run and when Vivian Vance left at the end of season 3 the show became even more popular ending in the no. 2 slot in its' final season. The Lucy Show just further established that people loved Lucy and she was the reason why they tuned in. In addition, Lucy earned 4 Emmy nominations for Best Actress In A Comedy Series and won two for the fifth and sixth seasons. I have all six seasons on DVD and can't wait until CBS releases a boxed set like they did with I Love Lucy. -- Submitted By: (RussellTelesca) on September 27, 2013, 6:42 pm - (-2 votes) - Login to Vote

3 Since Lucy helped raise me during my latchkey days, I hate to admit this show boned but seeing it as an adult I have no choice to see that this show did when Lucy went to the opposite coast after Viv married and dumped her kids in boarding schools. Lucy Carmichael had always been scheming but without much sense but at least when the kids and Viv were around, her crazy schemes and stunts had had some legit setups/motivations even if the kids were barely seen. After the LA move, Lucy became a total ditz who got yelled at by Mr. Mooney for barely doing her job. Funny, when I was a kid, my sympathies usually were with her, but now that I've been in the workforce some decades and have had to endure tardy,lazy, no-show and incompetent co-workers, I have more sympathy with Mr. Mooney! For no good reason, she als became an obnoxious star chaser. It got painful to watch her virtually stalk John Wayne (e.g.)and have him visibly discomfitted by her grating,obnoxious behavior when she totally wrecked his movie set while stalking him Also, she became increasingly vain about her age- as she started out as frankly being middle aged when the show started but after her LA move, every man (except Mr. Mooney) was expected to fall for her, many stars were impressed by her talent and everyone was supposed to treat her as though she was a young lady newly arrived in town. Yeah, the show still had its good moments (e.g. Bill Frawley's last TV appearance ever as a horse trainer) but they steadily became fewer and further between as the show progressed. Even as a kid, I can remember looking forward to when the rerun cycle would come to an end because that would mean we'd get Viv and the kids back when the First Season reran again. Of course, the whole series was but a shadow of how Lucy HAD been when she was Mrs. Ricky Ricardo but that's for another comment board. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on July 10, 2009, 1:48 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
