The show ended in 1968 as a result of the sale of Lucille Ball's production company Desilu to Gulf + Western Industries on July 26, 1967. Gulf + Western used their ownership of Desilu to create a television division for its other property, Paramount Pictures (Desilu officially became Paramount Television on January 1, 1968; the new Paramount Television logo made its debut at the close of the "Lucy Show" episode, "Lucy and Viv Reminisce"). Because Ball no longer owned Desilu, she no longer owned the show. She started a new production company (Lucille Ball Productions, Inc.) and also a new sitcom, Here's Lucy (1968). See more »
Add my opinion to the others...Vivian Vance added a great deal of class to all the "Lucy" shows. None was more evident than in "The Lucy Show" when she departed (much too soon). After Vivian left the show it was apparent that Lucy needed a sidekick and various guest stars tried to fill Vivian's shoes but none came close. Once the show was broadcast in color, Lucy doing too much (such as running Desilu) started acting with too many broad strokes thinking that whatever she did would be funny. It wasn't. Some of the later shows were actually embarrassing to watch and you realized that not only were the writer's out of ideas but Lucy should have ended this show years before.
