If you have never watched I Love Lucy, you are missing out on a classic sitcom that aired from 1951 to 1957. This show starred Lucille Ball, William Frawley, Desi Arnaz, and Vivian Vance.
The show is still highly rated by television critics and is consistently popular with television audiences. It is also notable for being one of the first American shows to be shown on British television, which was launched in September 1955. Channel 4, the second terrestrial television network in the UK, repeated the series several times between 1983 and 1994. The show was still the longest-running show in the Los Angeles area in January 2015.
The show’s first episode was aired on October 15, 1951, and it became one of the most popular shows in America for four of its six primetime seasons. It was a success, winning five Emmy Awards, including best situation comedy in 1954 and best actress in 1956.
