We all loved Lucy Ricardo

May 6, 1957 was the final series broadcast of the “I Love Lucy” show on CBS television.  The show started its run in 1951, and featured Lucille Ball and her Cuban born real-life husband, Desi Arnaz.  “I Love Lucy” became a huge success as North American viewers laughed at the stories and antics of Lucy and Ricky Ricardo.  More viewers watched the television birth of their son, “Little Ricky”, than President Dwight Eisenhower’s inauguration on the same night. The show was the first in television history with an audience of more than ten million homes.
