Life With Lucy - Opening Credits After being away from sitcoms for 12 years, Lucille Ball returned to TV in the fall of 1986 with great fanfare at age 75 as the star of the ABC comedy Life With Lucy. (Here is the opening montage. The theme song was performed by Eydie Gorme.) Madelyn Davis and Bob Carroll, who had written scripts for I Love Lucy, were the show's producers. The premise of the show was that the recently widowed Lucy Barker decides to help out at the hardware store her husband ran. The only problem was she had had nothing to do with the store while her husband was alive, so she was clueless about everything. Eighty-year-old Gale Gordon also came out of retirement to play Lucy's husband's business partner Curtis McGibbon. Lucy had just moved in with her daughter Margo's family. Margo was married to Curtis's son, a law student. At the end of the first episode Curtis moves into the same house too. Got it? After a decent showing in the ratings for the first episode, Life With Lucy steadily plummeted downward. Even guest appearances by John Ritter and Audrey Meadows failed to halt the show's decline. After eight weeks it was dismally ranked 73rd out of 76 shows. Even though ABC had committed to 22 episodes, the scripts for 14 shows had been written, and 13 had been filmed, ABC pulled the plug after the eighth episode aired. Lucy was said to have been heartbroken that the public no longer wanted to see her on TV. She died about 30 months later.
