One of the most watched television series of its time, the show is well known and popular around the world today. The unofficial holiday commemorates the day in 1951, when the show, starring real-life couple at that time, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, debuted on CBS.

Singer and Performer

I Love Lucy follows the lives of aspiring performer Lucy Ricardo, her singer husband Ricky Ricardo and their friends Ethel and Fred Mertz in New York City.
