    Oh, Lucy on TikTok. Imagine the possibilities. Her paid promotion of Vitametavegamin would go viral, of course!

    Oh this is really cute. I bet Lucy would end up trying to make it into show business by hoping her talent will be discovered with her tick tok videos.

    Firstly, HELLO! I'm back! It's wonderful to post on here again. I recently fell into the internet hole of Lucy Day at The New York World's Fair in 1964. As we know, Lucy had a schedule of where she had to be during the festivities. But, there was a point in the day where Lucy and Hedda "Hooper" went to the Hollywood Pavilion exhibit to put their handprints in cement in front of their replica of the Grauman's Chinese Theater at the fair. So, I figured I needed to come talk to my fellow Lucy experts and ask the question, did someone pull a Lucy and Ethel and grab that cement slab? Or is it hiding under the Grandstand Stadium built in 1978?

    Ruta Lee remembers Alex Trebek. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/tv/story/2020-11-09/alex-trebek-jeopardy-dead-ruta-lee-high-rollers From this interview we can deduce that Lucy’s appearance on High Rollers was taped the same day as Lucy’s December 1975 Tonight Show appearance (same outfit).

    I just re-watched "Lucy and the Countess Have A Horse Guest." I don't think is the best script, but I loved the interplay between Lucy and Ann Sothern. I also liked the cameo appearance with William Frawley - although it was a bit jarring to see how much older and frailer he had become. I wish Ann Sothern could have taken over Viv's role in the series, but I guess it would have been tough for Ann to go from running her own production company and starring in two series to becoming Lucy's second banana. Still, I always thought it was odd that they didn't bring her back for occasional guest appearances. In the Desilu book, Ann told the authors that she and Lucy got into a few arguments while doing this series (in part because Lucy liked to be in control,) so maybe Ann just thought it would be healthier for their friendship if they didn't work together.

    This is what Bob and Madelyn shined at. They set up the gag so subtly. Going back to ILL there are many times when they'd show Lucy doing something right so later when she messed it up you knew that it was because of funny circumstances, not just she was terrible. They grounded the crazy from the start, thus making it believable.

    If you had to pick one episode of "The Lucy Show" to show someone unfamiliar with anything post-ILL, which would it be? I picked "Electric Mattress". Though it's rather low on plot compared to a great I Love Lucy, the TWO great block comedy scenes make up for it. Two little B&M/B&B touches I'd like to point out. The over-waxed slippery floor is established before the bed takes off making the whole bit a little more plausible. #2: Lucy to Jerry: "Why do you leave these stilts in the middle of the room? Someone's liable to trip over them." Again paving the way for Lucy's eyeing the stilts, one of her best physical bits of all time.

    I like the cover art but the perfect cover would be Lucy's TV Guide portrait that was used at the time of the show's premiere in 1986 -- even though it would be owned by TV Guide's publishers most likely in perpetuity, would have been nice if Paramount have used this as it would blend in well with Paramount's covers for 'The Lucy Show' dvd sets -- also regarding extras I wonder if the GAB Entertainment guys will do intros for each episode similar to the excellent job they did on the 'Here's Lucy' sets? The show's wrap party is on You Tube -- someone could at least make a 15 minute extra with that as the main attraction and all the 1986 ABC promos if they still exist. For what it is worth, I am in Melbourne, Australia and "Life With Lucy", all 13 episodes, aired nationally in either December 1986-January 1987 or the same time 1987 into 1988 (please excuse my failing memory) in an early afternoon timeslot or as filler shows during the national cricket games between whoever it was that year (England/West Indies/Pakistan/India/Sri Lanka) and during those cricket match days, would have received the largest tv viewership these shows ever got -- worldwide! The fact that every episode was broadcast when only 8 went to air in the US is worth noting -- sadly, this was most likely seen as filler by the network and with only 13 shows just shows you what clout Lucy's name still had down here and still had with the network who ran all her shows during the 60s, 70s and 80s, the Nine Network run by Kerry Packer (most likely a big fan) Wonder if Lucy knew of if she got any fan mail about it from down here? It certainly would have brightened her day.
