Flashback Friday: May 6th

One of the most iconic television shows, I Love Lucy, began airing in 1951. Starting as a popular radio show called "My Favorite Husband," CBS reached out to the star Lucille Ball in the hopes of turning it into a television program.

The program starred her then real-life husband, Desi Arnaz and secondary characters Fred & Ethel, played by William Frawley and Vivan Vance. "I Love Lucy" was one of the first films to ever be filmed in Hollywood!

Coming to the show's end, after 181 episodes and 6 seasons, "I Love Lucy" still reigned as #1 in the Nielsen ratings on the day the show ended, May 6th, 1957.
