Trivia

The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957) did not have a formal series' finale. But there was a plan for one season and Debbie Reynolds had been signed to appear in an episode, but there were numerous disagreements, preventing another season and a formal farewell to CBS TV. No other signings for that season were made and all other cast with contracts were released in April of 1960. Only William Frawley appeared on a regular program. His character role was Bub, on My Three Sons (1960). A role he had until 1965. (William Demarest replaced ailing William Frawley, with character role of Uncle Charlie, for the remainder of the My Three Son's series). Lucille Ball returned with Vivian Vance in 1962 for The Lucy Show (1962). See more »

I want ALL Lucy shows to be released on DVD.
27 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lucille Ball is the greatest comic of all time. All of Lucy's shows were fun, light, and campy. It was great to see Lucy, Ricky, Fred, Ethel, and then Lucy, Viv, Gale, the kids, and Mary Jane all acting together. Fans now have the complete series of I Love Lucy and The Lucy Desi Comedy Hour. I hope to see complete series releases of The Lucy Show, Here's Lucy, and Life With Lucy. All of these shows are important parts of Lucy's television history. If you haven't voted yet, please do so at tvshowsondvd.com. Maybe we will get some good news on a future release!! The more votes, the more fans can show their enthusiasm!! Can you imagine owning all the Lucy shows in your own collection?!?!?
