Trivia

As with most of Lucille Ball's series, rights to this show are now owned by CBS, which bought the rights to "I Love Lucy" (including its hour-long specials) in 1960. Paramount Television, which gained ownership of follow-up "The Lucy Show" in 1967, gained syndication rights to the former show in 1995 following longtime distributor Viacom's acquisition of Paramount Pictures. Paramount/Viacom gained rights to "Life with Lucy" in 1999 following its acquisition of the show's production company Spelling Entertainment. Following CBS' 2000 merger with, then 2006 spin-off of Viacom, CBS now has ownership of the original Paramount Television library, including full rights to the "Lucy" shows (except "Here's Lucy").

Life with Lucy
22 February 2006 | by johncastellano1967See all my reviews

Its just about 20 years since Lucille Ball came back to Television in the short lived, "Life with Lucy." I feel great stars work until the very end, like Lucy (she was on the Academy Awards with Bob Hope a few weeks before her death in 1989), Bette Davis dying of cancer and still made films shortly before her death.

Lucy wanted to work (certainly it was not for the money), America wanted to see her but not in the same manner as we did in 1950's-1960's shows. I feel her late husband did her in, he was a glory hog and mismanaged her. Why did he need Lucy in that vehicle--to put a few more bucks in his pocket? The show has a dull cast, its very 80's (shoulder pads, severe make up and pointy earrings). I think Lucy should have come back as a more serious actress, I always thought she could have played the Jane Wyman role on Falcon Crest. I as a fan was willing to see Lucy in different types of work the fans forced her to "paint on" the face of long ago Lucy. She was Lucille Ball a legend she should not have done this. In one of her books someone asks her while on a flight whats the fame like, she replied, "see all those lights down there, I could go to any house and it would be the most exciting thing that has ever happened to the residents." this was so true.

But what happened to Lucy happens to other, ie: Joan Crawford in the horror movies, Mae West in 1980 in Sextette playing it like she was 30 not 85.
