    Netflix will be showing a Laugh-In 50th anniversary special. https://deadline.com/2019/03/rowan-and-martins-laugh-in-still-laugh-in-the-stars-celebrate-netflix-lily-tomlin-1202568687/ I know a lot of cast members have passed away in recent years, but it would be nice if they could have gotten others in addition to Lily and Jo Anne. All the episodes of Laugh-In are currently available on Amazon Prime.

    Well, there are 10 available. I dare someone to buy all of them and then tell their significant other, ala Yours, Mine and Ours - "I have 10 Lucys. Speaking of 10 Lucys, that's what I have!"

    As far as episode selections of Life with Lucy, I'd switch out "Sax Symbol" with "Love Among the Two by Fours". It had some touching moments, to me anyways. At least about one third of the series will have an official release. Who has the rights? CBS?

    The ski pole stabbing story is just crazy. I wish he would have been a permanent boyfriend. He was so sweet with her and they were super cute. You felt like those 2 characters could have been more than a flavor of the week.

    Coming soon! The NEW movie version of Mame. Tighter, sharper and, I think, a better movie at 108 minutes instead of 132. I'll probably have to upload to youtube in 2 sections...and am not sure they'll let me do it. If not, I'll post the dropbox link. Doesn't Lucy sound (and look) better? Here's OUR official trailer. I don't think the original shows the movie off to great advantage. It's the only one I've ever seen. I wonder if there was more than one.

    I stumbled across 1966's "Lucy Gets a Roommate" (Carol Burnett) on youtube. It is by far the best of Carol's 7 TLS/HL appearances. This was a year before Carol got her variety series and four years after she left The Garry Moore Show. In the meantime she had had a Broadway show and a special or two. But many CBS affiliates were unsure enough about Carol that they did not carry "TCBS" that fall (as I read in TV Guide), so I'm unclear just what Carol Burnett meant to the general public at that particular time. The episode is a fun and funny half-hour. I was struck by a couple things: -what a generous performer Lucille Ball was. The episode is designed as a showcase for Carol who is given the bulk of the comedy. Lucy carries her own but is essentially playing straight for Carol. 1966's Lucille Ball had nothing to prove, but not all performers would design a showcase for another who could potentially be considered a rival, and a 20-years younger one. -how far afield The Lucy Show got from the original premise in a very short period of time. Though undeniably funny, the "Roommate" proceedings are played much more broadly, sort of a sitcom-skit hybrid, a unique style that was not usually satisfying, IMO. I can't think of another similar sitcom, can you? It's impossible to imagine "Roommate" being done any time in the first 2 seasons. (I never equate the 3rd season Danfield episodes as being the same caliber as the first two). I didn't watch the Roommate sequel "Lucy and Carol in Palm Springs" but is there ANY reference to roommate Carol moving out of the Glenhall Apartments? As I recall, Carol Bradford's goofy, shy librarian character is totally different in "Palm Springs". The 1962-64 shows had at least SOME continuity but by this time TLS did not...and apparently no one cared. "Roommate" ranked #1 for its week!. Both the Carol Burnett TLS 2-parters offer a format-changing shift that is abandoned and never mentioned again after Bradford/Tilford returns to wherever she came from. The Tilford exit is even worse. They two DID graduate from stewardess school after all; and with enough honors to headline--some of their fellow graduates might say HOG---the graduation musical show (attended by ?????). Just try to imagine the 2-part stewardess shows as part of season 1 with Lucy and Viv playing the exact same script, Viv subbing for Carol! (...pausing while you do that....). To me the only highlight of both is the brief but hilarious visual of Lucy fighting the movie film upstream. Even when the comedy has potential, it's ruined by artificiality. The serving lesson has that fake-sounding over-dubbed tick of a clock. When Lucy and Carol's turn devolves into mayhem, it's accompanied by the annoying college fight song music---and doesn't the clock start ticking faster for no reason? Episodes like these are the type that have tarnished historic reputation of The Lucy Show. Entertaining (mostly) but vapid. .....sort of like my posts. When books are written about 60s TV shows, The Lucy Show, THE MOST successful sitcom of the decade (title shared with Andy Griffith), barely gets a mention, let alone any respect.

    Oh, I've thought about that - if the show was a hit, how long would she continue with it. I though maybe 3 seasons. If LWL was a hit that would have really kept Lucy in good spirits and maybe health and she probably would have lived longer. I think you are right, if the seasons had continued they would have eventually acknowledged the age issue. They never got a chance to work on improving the show.

    Re: Lucy's answer to Gary Collins/Hour Magazine question: "(without Vivian) would you ever do a series with another woman?". (Answer: a definite "No, sir.") Speaking for Mary Jane Lewis, all I can say is "WELL!!! What was I? Chopped Chipmunk Liver???"

    Well considering that they got the amount WAY off it already is a crap review. And if you are going to say you watched this with her then maybe provide a bit more details. Were you the liquor store delivery boy and she said, 'hey kid, come watch this piece of trash they forced me to make!" Did they watch it when it aired, or from her private collection years later. Yeah, so much crap here. I got to thinking. I might know who this is. Given the name and some social media run ins and a mention in someone's book, it's all starting to gel.

    Oh, I'll be ordering it as well, but I might check and see if the price comes down any further first. I'm glad Amazon is discounting the SRP already, because $50.00 is a bit steep for a not-exactly-beloved series. Then again, CBS likely isn't anticipating I Love Lucy level sales and want a safeguard to recoup their costs. (Either that or the Eydie Gormé estate has high licensing fees.)

    In honor of the upcoming Life With Lucy release: One Bad Grandparent Deserves a Smother: Curtis and Lucy's resentment of one another is taken to a new level when a sleepwalking Lucy attempts to smother Curtis in his sleep. A series of bizarre "accidents" then unfold with near fatal consequences for Lucy, such as the vibrating chair run amok. This ends after a stern lecture from Ted and Margo, who tell their parents that they're "too old" to be getting up to the same kind of shenanigans they used to. Making Love Among the Two-by-Fours: Leonard and his new girlfriend (Mindy Cohn) start having numerous lunchtime trysts around the hardware store, unaware Curtis has installed new security cameras after the burglary. The family gets the shock of their life, and the kids a lesson on the birds and the bees, when Curtis and Lucy review the tapes on the living room VCR. Lucy Gets Her Pliers Lost: While rearranging the P's, Mrs. Barker somehow misplaces an entire box of pliers, and will have the cost taken out of her paycheck if they don't turn up. The shoe's on the other foot, however, when Lucy discovers the box in Curtis' car. Realizing he was setting her up in order to have an excuse to fire her, Lucy spikes his fried eggs with laxatives the day an important client pays a visit. Lucy is a Wax Symbol: Wanting to stay hip, Lucy goes to a salon to inquire about bikini waxes. A representative from a hair removal company overhears her, and offers her free treatments in exchange for publicizing the results, as they wants to start appealing to an older demographic. Unfortunately, nobody told Lucy how painful this would be, and the deal goes sour fast when her televised waxing gets the company shut down for elderly abuse. Lucy Makes Curtis Right the Bust: Curtis is enlisted by Lucy to help redesign her brassieres, as the girls don't sit as evenly as they used to. Mother of the Wide: Good ol' two-chair Flo's mother (Frances Bavier) stops by to teach Curtis a lesson about fat-shaming. Lucy & The Lard Caboose: Mrs. Barker's infatuation with health food comes to an abrupt end after the latest tonic she tries (something called Vitametavegamin) causes her to black out. A post-hangover pizza rekindles her love of junk food, and soon Lucy can give cousin Flo a run for her money. Lucy's Lean Bum: Part two of the above episode - Lucy's weight becomes such an issue that the family ships her off to a health spa. Lucy soon turns weight loss into a competition after the spa's permanent resident Ann Sothern cracks, "and they said I got big!" Cracking Up Is Easy to Do: Curtis finally snaps his twig after cousins Ted and Harry introduce him to their respective secretaries.

    When Here's Lucy ended in 1974, Broadcast Magazine reported about it saying that Lucy's show has "not kept up with the times, still relying on old-school slapstick while shows like All in the Family and Maude deal with relevant social issues". Were they suggesting Here's Lucy be more "relevant" in the way that Lear's shows were? So what if Norman Lear had taken over when Milt Josefsburg left in 1972, changing the title and titillating up the plots. (Desi Jr: "Where was he when we did the Ann-Margaret episode??") I'm sure MOT will chime in with possible racy "Lear's Lucy" episodes, but in the meantime here's my contribution: "No Nudes is Good Nudes" The marina raises her rent so Kim scans the classifieds for a 2nd job and answers an ad looking for "liberal-minded" models. Kim had recently watched a TV interview with her lookalike Lucille Ball, who advised aspiring actors to "take anything that comes along like I did. Don't turn anything down. " When the photographer turns out to be working for "Hustler", Kim heeds Lucille Ball's advice and does what she is told, assuming no one she knows will see "the spread". But Kim's aghast when the issue comes out and she finds she's on the cover, prominently displayed at every newsstand in Encino, prompting all her former one-episode suitors, except Wayne Newton and Jim Bailey, to seek to rekindle their romances with her. Kim confesses to Uncle Harry and they both panic when Harry realizes that he has had his Hustler subscription sent to the office (so he can write it off as business expense). The two try in vain to keep the magazine from Lucy who, when she takes one look, does her "spider". Steaming mad, Lucy Carter then sets out to punch special guest star Larry Flynt in the nose. (and also give "Miss Ball" a piece of her mind). The name Lucy Carter is well known in the celebrity world so Flynt has been expecting a visit. It seems Flynt has the negatives from an old nude photo shoot attributed to Lucille Ball, though the name on the negative sheet is that of "Lucy Hinkley". When Miss Ball got wind of it, she sued Flynt claiming "that's not me. It's the lookalike contest winner: 'that motor-mouthed, scatterbrained Carter woman'". Meanwhile Cynthia Duncan claimed the pics were of her. "Wanna see proof?", said Duncan when she showed up at the Hustler photography studio in a very revealing negligee ready to pose for a sequel spread. Just as Lucy Carter's winding up for a punch, Flynt confronts her with one of the more provocative stills from the old black-and-white shoot, and Lucy does her 2nd "spider" of the episode. Episode promo: "So who is the young nude model? Is it Lucy Carter, Lucille Ball or Cynthia Duncan? Tune in tonight on CBS for the premiere of "Lear's Lucy" and find out!" (followed by the season premiere of another show Lear has taken over, making its Monday night debut, now called "The Nude Dick Van Dyke Show" pronounced the same way as the series title from the previous season.)

    As should be clear from the title, this is not "I Love Lucy Live On Stage". But it is a comedy. It's all the crazy, funny behind-the-scenes stories they never properly tell in the TV movies about how the show originated, how they got CBS to accept Desi, how Lucy and Desi ended up owning the show, how Viv and Bill were cast, how they got CBS to let them do the pregnancy episodes, where the theme song came from, how they invented the rerun, and much, much more! Starring Sarah Drew (Grey's Anatomy) and Oscar Nuñez (The Office). Lucie Arnaz was kind enough to act as my technical advisor on the script. There will be just five performances, and you can use the code COPA for $15 off on tickets at LATW.ORG What's not to like?

    Carol and Kaye in the same week: I can't take any more.... Kaye Ballard: typecast as the loud Italian: something she did very well and hilariously but she had an untapped dramatic range. I once saw a video (from I don't remember where but it was black and white from the 50s) in which she did very serious scene with someone and was amazingly effective. Desi did not augment the laugh track on Mothers In Law and it's KAYE that gets the most enthusiastic audience response. Here's my old tribute to Kaye on MIL. At the end Kaye sings. In the plot, the Hubbards and Buells invest in a rock band and this is Kaye's suggestion for a song to put in their act.......followed by the song written specifically for her act by Kander and Ebb, later incorporated into you-know-what and associated with you-know-who. Then her rendition of "My Man" from her hit album of Fannie Brice songs. It was her idea to turn this into a Broadway musical, done some 10 years later.

    December 14th at 8pm on CBS we are getting Pioneer Women as the new colorized episode along with the traditional Christmas one. I haven't found a teaser color photo yet for this episode. I think this is a good choice. The period costumes will look nice colorized and there is that one classic scene of the bread. But I still hold out hope that we will get that Connecticut house in color some day.

    "Lucy and the Safe Cracker" Decades is once again running 2 episodes of The Lucy Show right after 2 of I Love Lucy. The first season alternated the original stick-figure opening credits with the black and white kaleidoscope. One time, they ran the stick-figure video with the kaleidoscope audio, the first time I've seen that. They're now into the 2nd season. Even though, I've got those great prints on DVD, I still can't resist tuning it in. Today I watched "Lucy and the Safe Cracker" (Lucy Meets Mooney part 2). My favorite ILL changes from time to time as does my favorite TLS. For a time, "Safe Cracker" was my favorite. It's not one that makes anyone else's list for some reason. But I think it's JAM-PACKED full of great comedy. And great lines---one after another. Character-driven funnies, not Milt Josefsburg "gags" (which often make me do the same). A lot happens in this fast-paced episode. Plus Jay Novello puts in a stellar performance. Highlights: Lucy shoving gooey chocolates into Larry McAdoo's mouth so they can sing the jingle as promised. Lucy being dunked in chocolates: I don't know how they rigged that up so the chocolates stuck to her eye sockets. Could that have been an accident? After that, Lucy does this great "chicken" bit as she's trying to see what's going on. The audience is laughing so hard at Lucy that the others have trouble getting their lines out and heard. Amazing that this is only Gale's 2nd episode and he fits right in as if he's always been there.

    "The Conners": well , they pulled it off. Like the original "Roseanne" AND the reboot, there's an honesty about the show that allows it to mix drama and comedy--a mix not found in virtually any other show (but granted I don't watch many of them). Usually if an actor left a sitcom (or died), they had their character do one of 2 things: they would be out of town taking care of sick relative (Joseph Kearns in "Dennis the Menace"; Alice Pearce in "Bewitched) or they would get abruptly transferred to PAKISTAN (Bob Cummings in "My Living Doll" Don Defore and Whitney Blake in "Hazel"--resigned and fired respectively). I don't remember: did they kill Valerie off immediately when "Valerie" became "Valerie's Family"? Again, I paid no attention to real-life Roseanne Barr's loud-mouth politics or her tweets (and I don't know why anyone was listening to her in the first place). I'm in the minority who enjoyed her in her own SHOW. The rest of the cast is so very strong, yes, but I wish they hadn't killed Roseanne Conner off. I was hoping Barr would eat enough crow that she could return to her own series. But this is a series that brought Dan back to life, had Becky and Becky2 in the same episode so maybe they could do it. Like one of those "Dallas" dreams. I'm amazed how good these reboots are: Conners, Will&Grace, Murphy Brown. (haven't seen others). I never would have predicted it. Will, Grace, Jack and Karen could be the PARENTS of the originals. It's been 20 years since the debut season.

    It would be a mistake to have Darlene be the main character. Frankly, I don't think Sara Gilbert could carry a show on her own. With heavyweights like John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf already on board, it needs to be a true ensemble comedy for it to make it past its first year. Also, I hope they don't kill off Roseanne Conner. That seems too easy. Plus, although the chances are slim, the door should be open a crack for at least a cameo somewhere down the road.

    Geez Louise. She had a perfectly good thing going and she has to ruin it for everyone because she can't keep her foot out of her mouth. Dear celebrities: it is possible to have an unexpressed thought or opinion. Not everything that crosses through your minds has to end up on Twitter. Better to sleep on it than say or do something permanently stupid. I liked the show. Thought it was a nice change of pace from other contemporary fare. Now she's put the rest of her cast and crew out of work. Nice one, Rosie.

    April 1, 2018 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ELECTRONIC ARTS, IN ASSOCIATION WITH LIQUID ENTERTAINMENT AND CYAN WORLDS, ANNOUNCE “I LOVE TO BE LUCY” ON PS4, XBOX ONE, PC, LINUX AND MAC In cooperation with CBS Paramount and Desilu, too, comes the first officially licensed video game based on the beloved “I Love Lucy” property. I LOVE TO BE LUCY, the first video game based on the classic CBS series from the 1950s starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, will allow players to immerse themselves in this iconic sitcom world for the very first time on home platforms. “I am excited and proud that CBS has finally made a video game based on I LOVE LUCY,” says Lucie Arnaz, daughter of Ball and Arnaz. “It’s such a natural fit for the video game format, and I know fans will be as delighted by the results as I was.” Extensive, never before conducted research was undertaken to determine the most popular episodes, and all the classic Lucy bits everyone’s come to know and love will be incorporated into this exciting and action-packed title. Divided into more than 20 episodic levels, players will be able to relieve all their favorite moments, beginning with the lost pilot. Take control of Lucy and aim her cello bow to hit Ricky right on the butt – the better her aim, the more the audience laughs! And never forget that a man’s home is his castle, so players must help Lucy complete all the dustin’ and swippin’ before Ricky comes home from work – but don’t forget to defrost the roast beef for dinner or a spanking is likely in order. The fun continues with interactive versions of everyone’s favorite episodes. Switch over to first-person mode for “Lucy Does a TV Commercial,” where drunken Lucy must evade hordes of descending stage-hands by blasting Vitametavegamin at them. A similar approach is taken for “The Ballet” – squirt all the ballerinas with Lucy’s handy seltzer bottle, then head over to the pie table and let ‘er rip – but only after completing Madame LeMond’s grueling ballet lesson. Think you have what it takes to plie 500 times? Get those thumbs to work! Who could ever forget the fun Lucy and Ethel had in that chocolate factory – and now gamers can join them. Wrap chocolates as they move along the conveyor belt at ever increasing speeds, go nuts in the boxing department by pinching chocolates to see what kind they are, or cut loose in the dipping department and cause an all-out splatter war. But beware of the nasty forewoman, and evade her on multiple levels of moving conveyor belts if she catches Lucy and Ethel goofing off. Play solo as Lucy or join in as Ethel in two-player cooperative mode. “Lucy’s Italian Movie” brings elements of classic beat’em ups to I LOVE TO BE LUCY. Square off against menacing Teresa Tirelli in the grape vat by having Lucy perform an impressive series of jump-kicks and vicious uppercuts to squash the grape juice right out of her. As a bonus, once all levels are completed, players will unlock “Grapestomp Rematch Mode,” giving Lucy the chance to face off against every other character in the game. Tired of Marion Strong’s constant cackling? Make her lay an egg by burying her in grapes! Or else have Fred put on his Golden Gloves and grind Ricky to a Cuban pulp. Brothers Rand and Robyn Miller, creators of the world-famous MYST series, have also contributed their unique game-design sensibilities with a series of puzzle challenges that’ll have even the most ‘sperienced players scratching their heads. When Lucy gets locked in her steamer-trunk en route to Europe, it’ll take more than just an idea to help her out of it. Gamers can also help Ethel turn the Mertz apartment upside down searching for Fred’s secret rent-money stash – once found, treat Mrs. Mertz to a shopping spree and rid her of that tacky wardrobe once and for all. “Bongo Hero,” a fun-filled musical section, will allow players to conduct the Ricky Ricardo orchestra and play along to all of Desi Arnaz’s greatest hits. Keep the beat or else you’ll have some ‘splainin’ to do! A series of exciting mini-games are peppered throughout to boost your overall score, including “toss the biscuits” and “wallpaper the bedroom.” Not to mention the fun that opens up after you save up enough allowance to buy Lucy and Ricky a brand new Pontiac. Can you make a U-turn in the Holland Tunnel better than Lucy can? Presented in classic black and white to retain the feel of the original series, players will have the chance to find hidden henna rinse bottles in every level. Find them all to unlock “colorized for kids of all ages” mode. Other unlockable bonuses include Lucy’s complete wardrobe. She won’t be complaining about not having a thing to wear once players unlock every outfit she ever wore in the entire series. Replay any level with Lucy dressed in the costume of your choice. Players can also give Ricky, Fred, Ethel, Caroline Appleby, Mrs. McGillicuddy, and all other favorite characters their moments to shine by having them recreate Lucy’s most famous comedy bits. The voice talents of acclaimed impressionist Suzanne LaRusch as Lucy Ricardo, along with other famous I LOVE LUCY character impersonators, helps bring I LOVE TO BE LUCY to vibrant life. “We are beyond thrilled to give gamers a chance to be in the show after all these years,” says Electronic Arts chairman Larry Probst. “This release is the ultimate love letter to Lucy.” I LOVE TO BE LUCY is distributed by Electronic Arts, and is developed by Liquid Entertainment in association with Cyan Worlds. Street date: October 15, 2018.

    I wrote this review for my Instagram. NEW BOOK REVIEW: Just released is Lucy Loved Me: A Memoir by Paula Stewart. Paula first met Lucy while playing her kid sister in Wildcat in 1960. The book covers 30 years of a very special friendship between these 2 ladies. The book begins in 1960 with some wonderful stories about the rehearsal and run of Wildcat, how Paula introduced Gary to Lucy and on to Paula serving as Maid of Honor at their wedding. The book then progresses through Paula talking about her life and career and throughout there are many stories of Lucy interjected. Some of the highlights include Paula decorating Lucy’s NYC apartment, Lucy’s disastrous Palm Springs house remodel, shopping with Lucy, vacationing in Snowmass Colorado, and Lucy’s thoughts about getting old. Given that Paula introduced Lucy and Gary I thought she would be a fan of him. She was not, so if you are not a Gary fan you are going to LOVE some of the stories about him. There is a great one where Paula confronts him in the late 80s that will shock you. There are also a few other Gary revelations both funny and shocking. If you’ve read Lee Tannen’s book I Loved Lucy this book is a good alternative to that as Paula was no fan of Lee and you get the other side of a few stories that were told in his book. I don’t want to spoil too much but I’ll be posting a passage or 2 that I liked. Lucy Loved Me can be found on Amazon both in hardcover and paperback. It’s a fun read that I zipped through in a week due to how great some of the stories were and wanting more.

    I see lots of fans of "The Fashion Show" here, but I think that episode is just so-so. Out of the Hollywood episodes, I would have much preferred "The Tour" or "The Star Upstairs." But that's okay, "The Fashion Show" is still a decent episode and has its moments. The one disappointment is that CBS continues to run that dreadful Christmas episode. There is nothing "classic" about it.

    I totally get what you mean by sets looking too clean and organized. I've noticed that, too! That said, and I've only seen one or two episodes, but the series Mom has an amazingly real-looking set, in terms of the layout. Most live audience sitcom sets look like sets, not homes, with the walls that are not at 90 degree angles like walls in real homes. But that Mom set, and also the ingenious set design for Sean Hayes' short-lived sitcom, Sean Saves the World -- those really impress me.

    There are so few opportunities in this world to be in the presence of true genius, but I certainly felt like I was at this very moment in August 2006. It's not something I ever took for granted; I wanted time to slow to a crawl so I could take in every word he said. After all, just about everything he committed to paper became an indelible part of so many of our lives – even if you don't realize it. Joining the merry band of three with his writing partner, the quintet somehow bottled magic, brought to life by an incomparably talented quartet, which continues to delight and transfix new generations over sixty years later. One by one, over the passage of time, this quintet dwindled away until he was the very last torchbearer of something we're not likely to ever see again. As he approached his century and experienced myriad health problems we all knew time was limited but even as that chapter closed today I can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of loss; loss not for a life which was, to all accounts, exceedingly well lived, but for a time, a place, and an exceptional category of brilliance which just drifted into the ether. But, my god, what a legacy he and his colleagues have left behind. Rest in peace, Bob Schiller.
