Here's Lucy

Here's Lucy Cast

Series Description

The Here's Lucy TV show was a 30 minute comedy series on CBS that starred the Queen of comedy, Lucille Ball as another ditsy, red-headed, goofball, trouble-finding character like those that audiences had come to love. In this rendition, Lucy Carter was a widow with two children who worked at an employment agency for her boss who also happened to be her brother-in-law. It's not hard to imagine what the episodes focused on if you've seen any other Lucille Ball episode. Lucy broke things, said the wrong things, misrepresented herself, etc. and then spent the remainder of the episode trying to fix it but she usually just made things worse.

Here's Lucy Trivia

If you're a Lucille Ball fan, you might want to check out our other Lucy pages: "I Love Lucy", "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour", and "The Lucy Show".

Here's Lucy is often considered to be a continuation of "The Lucy Show" but there were enough changes to consider them to be two different series. Here's Lucy did begin the very next season after The Lucy Show ended, they were both on CBS, the time slot did not change, Gale Gordon remained as Lucy's boss, and both of Lucille Ball's characters were widows with two kids. The changes included Lucy's name changing from Carmichael to Carter, the actor and actress who played her kids were changed to Lucille Ball's real-life children, the setting changed from Connecticut to California, and Gale Gordon's character also had a new name and career.

Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. also appeared with their mom (and dad) before joining the cast of Here's Lucy. They very briefly can be seen on the very last "I Love Lucy" episode titled, "The Ricardos Dedicate A Statue" (aka: "Lucy Dedicates A Statue").

Lucille Ball is known for her red hair but her original color was actually brown. During her early days in "B" movies she changed to blonde like many actresses of the day, and then she finally became a redhead!

Desi Arnaz Jr. portrayed his real-life father in the movie, "The Mambo Kings" that starred Armand Assante and Antonio Banderas.

Lucy Arnaz got her own series in 1985, appropriately titled, "The Lucy Arnaz Show" but it only lasted a few months. Desi Arnaz Jr. got a starring role in 1983 on a series titled, "Automan" that also only lasted a short twelve episodes.

It's ironic that some critics talk like Here's Lucy was a major failure! It was undoubtedly the least popular "Lucy" series but they're comparing it to some of the most successful series of all time! Here's Lucy got off to a slow start but by the third season it was the #3 show on the air! It never fell out of the top fifteen during the first five seasons! If that's not a success, then nearly every show ever on TV was a failure!

Vivian Vance who had been a regular cast member on every Lucille Ball TV series until Here's Lucy did appear as a guest star on six episodes.

Lucille Ball broke her leg in a skiing accident just before the fifth season of Here's Lucy so she simply had the writers come up with messes she could get into because she was in a cast and the show went on!
