In this popular early sixties sitcom, Ann Sothern played Katy O' Connor, the pert assistant manager at the Bartley House Hotel in New York. Katy's hopes of succeeding her ex-boss Jason Macauley(Ernest Truex)
15 September 2000 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

THE ANN SOTHERN SHOW was the star's second attempt at a prime time sitcom. While almost as successful as her earlier series, PRIVATE SECRETARY, it didn't quite hit the mark, though Miss Sothern's warm personalty and impeccable comedy timing always made the show worth tuning in. In perhaps the series' most popular episode, TV Queen Lucille Ball guest-starred as Sothern's old high school chum, Lucy, who came to stay at the hotel after having an argument with her husband, Ricky(Desi Arnaz). Though mentioned several times in the episode, Arnaz did not make an official appearance. Lucy's and Desi's highly successful production company, Desilu, produced THE ANN SOTHERN SHOW.
