I Love Lucy: Discovering America's Best-Loved Sitcom (Paperback) Book

SKU ID #921325
Running from 1951 to 1957 and in syndication for more than fifty years, I Love Lucy has a permanent place in the hearts of American television-watchers and has reached multiple generations of viewers. Based on the humorous antics of a New York City housewife, her Cuban bandleader husband, and their landlord best friends, I Love Lucy was not only wildly popular but also groundbreaking for its filming techniques, for its use of a live audience, and for being the first television show to air reruns.

• The beginnings of the show as well as what made it so popular and why modern sitcoms still base their shows on Lucy’s format
• I Love Lucy’s main characters, the Ricardos and the Mertzes, best friends and neighbors known to get themselves into amusing predicaments
• Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz—their real-life romance and individual careers
• How the show was the first to use a three-camera setup and one of the first to be produced on film
• Big-name guest stars, including John Wayne, Rock Hudson, and Harpo Marx
• A list of the show’s top ten favorite episodes
