  1. The New York Times has an article about Lucy and Wildcat today. I don't think it's particularly flattering. Neil, I think you should write a letter to the editor! https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/31/theater/lucille-ball-wildcat.html
  2. The "We Love Lucy" episode of Will & Grace received three Emmy nominations today: Outstanding Directing for James Burrows, Outstanding Editing, and Outstanding Production Design.
  3. Truly the end of an era. It’s incredible to think how she outlived the co-star of her first feature film, “Much Ado About Nothing,” Ross Alexander, by 83 years!
  4. The only one of Valerie's series I had never seen before was her 1995 sitcom The Office. Two episodes were just uploaded to YouTube. I thought they were very funny, especially the pilot. Only six episodes were produced and only five of those aired. It was given the unenviable time slot of Saturday night at 9:00. I wish CBS gave it more of a chance because I think this show showed a tremendous amount of promise. Pilot: Episode #3:
  5. The phone call with Craig (not seen on camera) was from Lucy's Bonus Bounces. I think that's the first mention of Craig in the season and it's more than half way through the season. Later in the year Craig is mentioned by name in Kim Moves Out and With Viv as a Friend, Who Needs an Enemy?
  6. Here's a really great interview that is ostensibly about cabaret, but covering a wide variety of topics including her grandchildren, life in Palm Springs, the They're Playing Our Song reunion concert, and spirituality.
  7. Tonight at 8:00pm, CBS will be re-airing the colorized “Coast to Coast Big Mouth” and “October Eve” Dick Van Dyke Show episodes with a new intro from Dick. CBS Sunday Morning will interview Dick about Carl on Sunday.
  8. Hugh Downs, who played host to Lucy on The Tonight Show in 1960, has died at 99.
  9. A letter from Lucy is included among others in an upcoming Julien's auction of items from Valerie Harper's estate.
  10. A genius has left us. 😢 https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/30/arts/television/carl-reiner-dead.html I'm absolutely in shock. He was tweeting up a storm yesterday (and it was definitely always him sending out those tweets!) and did an interview in the last week. He was the greatest!
  11. An podcast with Lucie and Kate about the collection! https://besamecosmetics.podbean.com/e/lucy-legacy-special-with-lucie-arnaz-and-kate-luckinbill-connor/
  12. Great news! I finally just got the DVD. 😂
  13. Herbie died back in 2008. I wonder if this documentary was in production for that long or if he was interviewed for some other project.
  14. A 16mm network print of The Lucille Ball Comedy Hour has popped up on eBay. This includes the "lost" Pepsodent advertising Lucy did. This could not be found when the special was released on The Lucy Show second season DVD set. I hope whoever purchases this can make this available. https://www.ebay.com/itm/16mm-Film-LUCILLE-BALL-COMEDY-HOUR-Mr-Mrs-1964-BOB-HOPE-Network-Print/333625840464?hash=item4dada65350:g:dtAAAOSwggJe5qfn
  15. Cesar Romero's name was brought up, but Mae vetoed him saying he was too old. He was 14 years younger than her. She allegedly thought Tony Curtis was too old as well. He was 32 years younger.
  16. Carol answers the Vanity Fair Proust Questionnaire! https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2020/06/carol-burnett-proust-questionnaire
  17. I remember Candice saying that after Avery was born on Murphy Brown, critics and viewers thought the show was concentrating too much on the new baby and the show didn’t know what to do to fix that. Chloe said, “They hardly ever showed Little Ricky on I Love Lucy,” so this gave them the idea to ignore baby Avery as much as possible.
  18. Great new interview with Lucie with updates on the Lucy & Desi film and a new documentary.
  19. I'm not sure. I hope there is more information in the next month.
  20. Kaye’s doc will get a “virtual premiere” July 14! https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/olympia-dukakis-kaye-ballard-docs-set-virtual-premieres-1297726
