#1 in 1952: "I Love Lucy"


While America loved Lucy in 1951, it loved her even more in 1952. And thanks to the foresight of Desi Arnaz, we can still see what all the fuss was about even today. Unlike other shows of the time, I Love Lucy was recorded on film instead of being sent over the air live then recorded on an unreliable kinescope. It was more expensive, but Desi knew that it would pay off in the end. And it certainly did.
