A major reason the Mertzes were able to move to Connecticut during the the ten final episodes of I Love Lucy (1951) was running the egg farm on the Ricardo's property in Westport, Connecticut. However, during the entire run of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (1957), the business was never mentioned nor shown except in passing in only one episode of season one. Although Fred Mertz secured employment during this period as Ricky's Band Manager, he had filled the same position during earlier band trips to California (in season four) and Europe (in season five).

The best episode of the entire series was the one with Tallulah Bankhead, as for once, Lucille Ball had a co-star and a female one at that who could match her toe-to-toe in everything. If Lucy dished it out, Tallulah dished it right back and then some. I don't know if it was scripted or not, but in one scene, it looked as if Lucy could have killed Tallulah just by her looks alone!!
It was the scene where Tallulah says.."when Miss Bankhead is bored, Miss Bankhead will tell you"--the reaction shot of Lucy was priceless!! The other episodes were passable, but this particular one is the stand-out.
