Trivia

As with most of Lucille Ball's series, rights to this show are now owned by CBS, which bought the rights to "I Love Lucy" (including its hour-long specials) in 1960. Paramount Television, which gained ownership of follow-up "The Lucy Show" in 1967, gained syndication rights to the former show in 1995 following longtime distributor Viacom's acquisition of Paramount Pictures. Paramount/Viacom gained rights to "Life with Lucy" in 1999 following its acquisition of the show's production company Spelling Entertainment. Following CBS' 2000 merger with, then 2006 spin-off of Viacom, CBS now has ownership of the original Paramount Television library, including full rights to the "Lucy" shows (except "Here's Lucy").

Nostalgic but hopelessly dated
11 February 2006 | by (Alexandria, Virginia) – See all my reviews

If you loved Lucy, you couldn't help but enjoy seeing her again in her last, very short-lived show, especially the episode with guest star Audrey Meadows.

Unfortunately, the writing didn't evolve at all from her 1960's "Lucy Show" and "Here's Lucy" series. Also, casting a very old Gale Gordon for comic counterpoint added more than a little tedium to the experience.

Lucy occasionally consulted ex-husband Desi Arnaz (who had a great sense of comedy) as to what worked and what didn't in her later shows. He was very ill when this show was produced and presumably couldn't offer much advice.

Somehow, "Love With Lucy" seemed to be a copy and paste affair, with little forethought as to what would please current (1986) viewers. Thus, it was hopelessly dated, and Lucy doing even mild slapstick at age 75 just didn't click.

A sad conclusion to an otherwise stellar career.
