National I Love Lucy Day 10/15/19

National I Love Lucy Day is observed annually on October 15. This day celebrates one of television’s all-time greatest shows; I Love Lucy.

I Love Lucy, an American sitcom starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley made its debut on October 15, 1951.  The program created a new television experience with the first filmed and scripted program performed before a live audience.  The studio literally knocked a hole in a concrete wall creating room for theater seating inviting the once-banned fans to see the stars perform – for free! The new format and I Love Lucy won five Emmy Awards, received numerous nominations.

In four of its six seasons, I Love Lucy was the most-watched show in the United States and was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings. In 2002, TV Guide ranked the sitcom television’s 2nd greatest show of all time, and in 2007 it landed on TIME Magazine’s “100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME” list.
