50's TV question
Tue Jun 30 18:24:38 EDT 2009
I don't know whether it's true, but I've been told that "I Love Lucy" has
been on the air continuously, nonstop, in various parts of the world ever
since its debut in 1951. (Urban legend??) It can be seen every weekday
now on The Hallmark Channel (12 noon to 1 PM, ET). -Doug
