Lucy got $100,000 (that's $788,000 in today's dollars) for her appearance on the Danny Kaye special, which I'm sure was a healthy percentage of her total 1962 income.  Emmy nominated for "Program of the Year" and "outstanding achievement in the field of humor",its official title was "The Danny Kaye Show with Lucille Ball".   She's really the highlight of the show, a fact that most reviewers pointed out (I'm sure to Danny's chagrin).  It was broadcast shortly after "The Lucy Show" debuted as the #1 program on the air (before being eclipsed by Beverly Hillbillies)   1962 was a great year for Lucy.  There was no longer any doubt: she still owned television.
