Good question.  Well, here's the scoop.......

The Honeymooners were on CBS for one season (1955-1956).  These are affectionately known as the "Classic 39", (39 first run episodes, all on film).  The Honeymooners ran at the following times....

10/1/55 - Saturdays at 8:30 PM
In February of '56, the show moved to 8:00 PM.

I Love Lucy was on CBS from 1951-1957 (first run).  It varied in time slots over the years.  According to the MBC webpage, it aired at the following times.....

CBS October 1951-June 1957 (first run)
Monday 9:00-9:30 April 1955-October 1955
Sunday 6:00-6:30 October 1955-April 1956
Sunday 6:30-7:00 September 1957-May 1958
Wednesday 7:30-8:00 July 1958-September 1958
Monday 9:00-9:30 October 1958-May 1959
Thursday 7:30-8:00 July 1959-September 1959
Friday 8:30-9:00 September 1961

AND, it ran on CBS daytime for YEARS throughout the 1960's. I remember that when I was a child in the 60's! 

"Thank you for your question and now.... back to the countdown!"
