Cuban Bandleader Ricky Ricardo would be happy if his wife Lucy would just be a housewife. Instead she tries constantly to perform at the Tropicana where he works, and make life comically frantic in the apartment building they share with landlords Fred and Ethel Mertz. The first major show to be put on film rather than kinescope. Written by

The series' 180 normally televised dates, were Monday evenings. All 180, (all except for I Love Lucy: Pilot (1951), was a secret for 50 years, approximately and was thought to be really lost) were on an early Monday evening, on CBS TV stations. In reality, 179 of the 181 total, televise in order. One other that rarely televises is the Christmas episode, I Love Lucy: The I Love Lucy Christmas Show (1956). Only in the one or two weeks before Christmas, December 25th, (or mid December, approximately December 12 - December 24th), it is shown, and at the right time of the year. See more »
The Ricardos are said to live in an apartment at 623 East 68th Street, which in real life would be located in the East River. This is not actually a 'goof' because it was done deliberately to avoid legal issues with an actual address. See more »

Lucille Ball changed television forever when "I Love Lucy" hit the air in 1951. It featured a woman as a main character, which was rare back during that time and age. And the fact that the woman did not listen to her husband often was even more controversial. Everything the show was was rebellious. It was also extremely controversial because her husband was Cuban, and back in the '50's, barely anyone married other races, and if so, the subject was definitely not the premise for a television show.
So, through the ages, I Love Lucy has had a major impact on generations, and has not slipped into culture like many shows, but has been accepted into culture. Not to mention all the Lucy impersonators who have pageants each and every year. But the thing I remember most, is the famous "Eeeooowww!"
