Life With Lucy - 1986 Lucille Ball had 23 years of successful sitcoms from 1951 through 1974. During the next dozen years, Ball appeared only in specials and did the occasional game show. In 1986, after some serious negotiating, ABC persuaded the 75-year-old Ball to come out of retirement and do another sitcom, Life With Lucy, alongside 80-year-old Gale Gordon. Lucy would be paid for 22 episodes even if the series was cancelled before they aired or were even made. She also insisted that Bob Carroll and Madelyn Pugh--her two primary writers from I Love Lucy--would have final script approval. Lucy played a widow who moves in her with daughter's family. The first episode aired on Saturday, September 23, 1986. It ranked 23rd for the week. The reviews were not kind. Critics felt the scripts were old-fashioned and predictable. Some Lucy fans cringed watching the elderly Lucy and Gale perform stunts they did years earlier. Lucy’s timing was a bit off as well because she now needed cue cards to remember her lines. As the weeks went on, Life With Lucy steadily fell in the ratings. Within two months, it was among the lowest-rated shows on television. Lucy was shocked because she had never failed in a series before. There were occasional bright spots, though: Lucille Ball was likely at her personal best in an episode featuring John Ritter. (Each was a huge fan of the other.) An episode titled 'Mother of the Bride,' in which Audrey Meadows (of The Honeymooners) appeared as Lucy's sister, probably was the best of the bunch. Unfortunately, nothing could save what was becoming a major disappointment for ABC. Even though 13 episodes were filmed, only eight made it to the airwaves before the series was axed. 'Mother of the Bride' was the last one to air on November 15, 1986. Lucy was apparently devastated by the show's cancellation, tearfully declaring to longtime friend Ann Sothern that TV viewers only accepted a younger Lucy--not Lucy as a grandmother. ABC never aired any reruns. Life With Lucy has not yet been made available on DVD.

Art Fleming - Original Jeopardy Host 'Who was Art Fleming?' That would be the correct question to the answer, 'The original host of Jeopardy!' Fleming was an actor who had no experience as a TV host. Jeopardy! creator Merv Griffin saw Fleming in commercials and thought his 'authoritarian but warm' persona would be perfect for his new quiz show. Griffin's instinct proved to be right. Fleming's stint as host of daytime Jeopardy! on NBC ran from the debut broadcast on Monday, March 30, 1964 to its conclusion on Friday, January 3, 1975 and encompassed 2,753 shows. Fleming also hosted a nighttime version of Jeopardy! during its NBC years, plus two short-lived syndicated attempts to revive the show after 1975. He never missed hosting a single episode. Sadly, NBC saw no point in keeping the tapes of old game shows, so the vast majority of the original Jeopardy! shows were destroyed and are lost forever. Fleming died of pancreatic cancer in 1995 at age 70.

Smith Corona Typewriters Smith Corona manufactured quality typewriters for more than a century--from 1886 until 1995--and was very successful at doing so until the advent of personal computers. Smith Corona's directors steadfastly refused to accept the reality that newer technology was replacing typewriters. Instead of embracing computer word processing, Smith Corona kept trying to improve its typewriter which the public had no interest in buying anymore. The company laid of 750 workers and declared bankruptcy in 1995. Smith Corona didn't go completely under, however. It still exists today--ironically as a company that produces parts and technologies for computers.

Adding Machine 1905 Adding machines have been around for more than a century, but the old-fashioned 'crank' models had pretty much disappeared from offices by the late 1980s. William S. Burroughs (1855-1898) invented an adding and listing machine with a full keyboard in the early 1880s. He submitted a patent application in 1885, co-founded the American Arithmometer Co. in 1886 to produce the machine, and received a patent for his invention in 1888. After its Bankers' and Merchants' Registering Accountant machine failed in trials in 1890, the American Arithmometer Co. marketed its improved Burroughs Registering Accountant in 1892 for $475. In 1905, the company was renamed the Burroughs Adding Machine Co. In 1894, an article in a bankers' publication-- clearly referring to the Burroughs Registering Accountant--reported that 'An ingenious adding machine, recently introduced in Providence banks, is said to be infallible in results, and to do the work of two or three active clerks. Inclosed in a frame with heavy plate-glass panels, through which the working of the mechanism can be seen, the machine occupies a space of 11 by 15 inches and is nine inches high. On an inclined keyboard are 81 keys, arranged in nine rows of nine keys each. The printing is done through an inked ribbon.' Shown here is a Burroughs model from 1905. A seat is provided for the user! How quaint!

I Love Lucy Pilot Episode Rediscovered I Love Lucy was the first American sitcom to be shot and preserved on 35-mm film, thus ensuring every episode could be shown forever in reruns. However, the pilot episode had mysteriously vanished after it had aired in 1951. For nearly four decades it could not be located, much to the frustration of the show's devoted fans. In 1990, the widow of Pepito Perez, a Spanish clown who had appeared in the pilot episode, announced the good news: She had found the missing episode while dusting under a bed in her home! Apparently Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz had given the only existing copy of the episode to her late husband as a thank-you gift--and quickly forgot about it. It had sat undisturbed in Perez's home for nearly 40 years. Perez had died in 1975. Both Lucy and Desi had also died by the time the pilot episode had been rediscovered. With only a slight bit of restoration needed to the film, CBS aired it as part of an I Love Lucy retrospective on April 30, 1990. Some notable differences in the pilot from the rest of the series: Lucy and Ricky's last name was Lopez instead of Ricardo; their apartment was markedly different; and landlords Fred and Ethel Mertz were nowhere to be seen. Lucy was quite obviously wearing maternity clothes in the pilot, although no mention was made of her pregnancy. The child in the womb was Lucy Arnaz--who hosted the 1990 retrospective show.

Sparky Anderson Dead at 76 Major League Baseball lost one of its greastest managers today. George (Sparky) Anderson died at age 76, just one day after his family had announced he had been placed in a hospice because of worsening dementia. Anderson won World Series in both major leagues, managing the Cincinnati Reds to titles in both 1975 and 1976 and the Detroit Tigers in 1984. Anderson always looked years--perhaps decades--older than he actually was. This photo of Sparky is from the early 1970s before Anderson was 40 years old.
