Sixty Two Years of “I Love Lucy” ↳ October 15, 1951 - ∞
The first episode of I Love Lucy premiered on CBS on Monday, October 15th, 1951 at nine o’clock and hasn’t gone off air since. As I Love Lucy has been passed down from generation to generation, it has been translated into seventy-seven languages, produces millions of dollars for CBS each year, and has been estimated to be the most watched television show of all time. Desilu Productions, run by married stars Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, pioneered and perfected the live audience, the three camera system, and the rerun. During its original run from 1951 - 1957, I Love Lucy enjoyed such immense popularity that business owners would close their stores on Monday nights. Telephone companies confirmed that phone calls plummeted to a minimum during the Lucy half hour. Parents adjusted bedtimes so families could stay up to watch Lucy. Tuesday morning conversations consisted of, “Did you see ‘the show’ last night?” And when Lucille Ball gave birth to her television son - the night of the day she gave birth to her real life son - sixty eight percent of American viewers tuned in, easily trumping the number of those who watched the inauguration of the president the following day. The show’s continuing popularity is a result of its timeless principles: friendship, laughter, and love.
"Everyone needs a little push on occasion. Even Queens, even France;
- Baby, not everyone can or will love you, and that means you have to love yourself.
- Stop counting so hard upon the opinions of people who are not yours.
- If the reflection in the mirror is making you unhappy, look at yourself for a long time, look at yourself until you can see the symmetry of your features, the way you were put together so beautifully that you could not be mistaken for anything less than wonderful.
- Put Aloe Vera on burns.
- Don’t give your heart to the first boy who looks at you with affection in his eyes.
- People can be damned well cruel sometimes, but that doesn’t mean you should stop finding kindness in them.
- Don’t hold razors to your skin, you were not made for that, put flowers in the places you’re hurting the most.
- You’re allowed to be miserable, even though you know people have it worse than you, you shouldn’t feel guilty for the things you might feel.
- Music will save you, give it your time and your honesty.
- Don’t start smoking.
- The first thing you will do is look for love in the unlikeliest places and people, be still and be patient, you have so much time.
- Your sadness will not be in you forever.
