American television series often regarded as one of the greatest and most influential sitcoms in history. Starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, and William Frawley, the black-and-white series originally ran from 15 October 1951 to 6 May 1957 on CBS. After the series ended in 1957, however, a modified version continued for three more seasons with 13 one-hour specials; it ran from 1957 to 1960. It was first known as The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show and later in reruns as The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour.

The show, which was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35 mm film in front of a studio audience, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations. I Love Lucy was the most watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons.
