Trivia:
The show came about because of a business transaction. In 1968, "The Lucy Show" (1962) had been running for 6 seasons, and the ratings remained solid. Lucille Ball sold the Desilu studio that year, however, so in order to retain ownership of her series, she ceased production on "The Lucy Show" and created "Here's Lucy". The new series had a slightly different plot and new character names (plus roles for Lucy's kids), but continued with the same cast and timeslot.See more »

Keep Your Memories: Don't Watch It, 11 August 2008
Author: pfeffermuse from Second Star on the Right, Straight on 'Til Morning

If you have fond memories of "Here's Lucy" from your childhood, the easiest way to retain them is never to re-watch this series. The plots are trite; the jokes are flat; and the overacting by both Lucille Ball and Gale Gordon is painful to watch.

At one time, Lucy had been the queen of television comedy, but that had been with the benefit of talented writers and a brilliant cast. Without those, Lucy is left to rely only on physical comedy, and that alone cannot carry a show, no matter the laughtrack volume.

I'm convinced that the only reason this series was a ratings success on CBS was that viewers had been watching some version of Lucy on Monday nights since the early '50s, and they were unaware that they could change the channel.
