I Love Lucy aired in black and white on CBS television for a total of nine seasons from October 15th, 1951 to December 24th, 1957, and a run of 180 episodes.  It was an American television sitcom starring Lucille Ball.  Even after the show ran for nine seasons it continued for three more seasons with one hour specials called "The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show".

The plot centers around Lucy Ricardo and her husband, Ricky Ricardo.  He was an up-and-coming Cuban American singer and band leader.  Their landlords and best friends are Fred and Ethel Mertz .  Lucy's character is very naive but ambitious.  She always gets herself into trouble, even something as simple as a ordinary household chore turns into a disaster for her.  She is very scatterbrained and disorganized.  She dreams of joining her husband in stardom, but he would never allow it.  She is often seen on set with her best friend Ethel.  The show has a lot of physical and satirical comedy in each episode.

"I Love Lucy" is undoubtedly the foremost comedy TV Show of all time and will forever remain so in the audiences memory !
