Welcome to the I Love Lucy, a wiki devoted to the now classic 1950's CBS-TV comedy series which was co-produced by series co-star Desi Arnaz, Jess Oppenheimer, Al Simon and Jack Aldworth. The show would make TV icons out of series co-stars Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance, who would go on to co-star in 2 other CBS-TV programs, The Lucy Show, as well as Here's Lucy.
The was also the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience. In 2002, it ranked second on TV Guide's list of television's greatest shows, behind Seinfeld and ahead of The Honeymooners. In 2007, it was listed as one of Time magazine's "100 Best TV Shows of All-TIME." I Love Lucy remains hugely popular among new generations of TV sitcom fans, with an American audience of 40 million viewers each year.
