This is May sweeps season, and the networks will do anything to get viewers! So, CBS is thinking that nostalgia will draw in viewers! On Sunday, May 17th, CBS will air two new I Love Lucy episodes that have been colorized. The two episodes starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz will be “L.A. at Last!” and “Lucy and Superman.”
“Lucy and Superman” follows the trials of scheduling kids’ birthday parties. It first aired in 1957 and features George Reeves, star of TV show Adventures of Superman. William Holden guest stars in “L.A. at Last!” which has Lucy and Ricky finally landing in Los Angeles because Ricky is appearing in a new motion picture. The special will also show additional material that has not been broadcast since the episode first aired in 1955.
If you are interested in these episodes, the special will air on CBS on Sunday, May 17th at 7 pm Central!
