Satirical commentary of I Love Lucy every Friday! Here’s the info to watch ahead, plus all the WTFacts for this week.

This week’s episode:

“The Quiz Show”

Original Air Date: 

November 12, 1951

The Week’s WTFacts:

  • Vivian Vance’s husband at the time plays Arnold (Lucy’s “first husband” who appears last in the episode).
  • Freddie Fillmore – the sleazy quiz show host – will be back for later episodes.
  • Following the devastating actor drought of 1952, actor Frank Nelson reappears both as Freddy Fillmore and as other characters, and Vance’s husband Philip Ober reappears in a later episode playing a different character. 
  • Lucille Ball isn’t wearing her false eyelashes for the seltzer spraying scene and it’s totally fug.

See you Friday!
