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 »
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.
