Though it no longer runs anywhere in syndication, this was one of the best sitcoms of the late '50's and early '60's. Nick at Nite showed it in repeats back in the late '80's and that's how I first discovered the adorable Ann Sothern, who still stands some fifteen years later as my favorite comedienne. In my opinion, Miss Sothern ranks right up there with Lucille Ball as a Comedy Queen. In fact, Miss Ball guest-starred on "The Ann Sothern Show" in an episode entitled "The Lucy Story", and Miss Sothern would later guest-star in several episodes of Lucy's series, "The Lucy Show". It's really something special to see these two extraordinarily gifted women work together.
"The Ann Sothern Show" was actually Ann's second TV series. Her first was "Private Secretary" which aired on CBS from 1953-57. Episodes of either series have yet to be released to home video. Hopefully the great TV Land will rerun these two wonderful series again for a whole new generation of television buffs to discover.
