Lucy desi comedy hour

The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour was a collection of thirteen black-and-white one-hour specials airing occasionally from November 6, 1957 to April 1, 1960 on CBS starring Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz. It is a spin-off of "I Love Lucy."

The remaining eight were originally shown as part of Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse. Its original network title was "The Ford Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show" during the first season and "The Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse Presents The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show" for the following seasons.

CBS reran these thirteen specials under the "Lucy-Desi" title as five prime time summer replacements from 1962 to 1965, with a final run in 1967.

The 1966–67 TV season was the first in which all first-run prime time network shows were in color. These "Lucy-Desi " repeats were the only black and white series aired that year, after which it, and "I Love Lucy", went into syndication.
