Celebrating 60 Years of I Love Lucy

I Love Lucy

I Love Lucy premiered 60 years ago this month, and our adoration for Lucille Ball has only grown over time. To honor the comedian and her storied history with TV Guide Magazine (she's been on more covers than any other star), we asked her daughter, Lucie Arnaz, 60, to share some of her favorite memories of that period. Arnaz, an actress and singer, has kept her mother and father Desi Arnaz's legacies alive by donating scrapbooks and arrangements to museums and producing shows that honor the legendary couple. Currently, she is developing a tribute to the Latin music of I Love Lucy.

TV Guide Magazine: This is a big year for your mom, Lucille Ball. It's not only I Love Lucy's 60th anniversary, but the 100th anniversary of her birth. What's it been like? read more

Keck's Exclusives: Housewives' Huffman Feuding with Savant

Doug Savant and Felicity Huffman

Turns out Desperate Housewives' decision to separate the long bickering Scavos has had an adverse reaction on Felicty Huffman and Doug Savant's eight year friendship. "I have to tell you, I can't love anyone more than Doug Savant, but life's been imitating art," Felicity tells me. "You spend so many hours acting a certain storyline that it bleeds into real life. Dougie and I have been fighting for real. Not huge things, but little barbed comments. A little rough around the edges."

During one scene, Felicity says, "I thought he was making fun of me and I screamed, 'Hey — f--- you!'" Then after another tiff over wardrobe for their Halloween episode, Felicity says ...

Matt's Guide to Wednesday TV: Luther, Suburgatory and More!

Casey Wilson

Crime procedurals on TV are a dime a dozen (though often much more profitable), but BBC America's Luther is one in a million. Making Criminal Minds look like a romp in Disneyland, this twisted walk on the dark side earned an Emmy nomination this year for its powerful star, Idris Elba (The Wire), for good reason. Few things are juicier than letting an actor wallow in the most damaged corners of the soul.

And right away, as Luther returns for a second season (10/9c) comprised of two two-part thrillers airing over four weeks, we can see that John Luther's notoriety as London's most volatile and unstable detective is intact. Still grieving the death of his ex-wife (at the hands of a former colleague), Luther returns ...

Watercooler: An Open Letter to DWTS and Other Reality-TV Time Eaters

Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli

Dear Reality Shows,

Listen, we need to talk. It's about these two-hour episodes, the twice-a-week commitments, the extended eliminations, the reunions... all of it. Our DVRS are tired, and so are we. In other words, it's not us. It's you.

Used to be that TV shows were once a week, and two-hours long only if they were, like, special episodes or season premieres. Now, it seems that every ...

In last week's season opener, Vanessa Lengies joined the show as Sugar Motta, a tone-deaf student in more ways than one. Her attribution for her lack of social graces to "self-diagnosed Asperger's" had autism-awareness advocates up in arms. Well, Sugar was back ...

Idris Elba Talks Luther Season 2

Idris Elba, Luther

Talking to Idris Elba can be disorienting. No matter how often he references his acclaimed roles as Baltimore drug lord Stringer Bell on The Wire ("That part spoiled me and catapulted me onto the radar," he says) or Dunder Mifflin big boss Charles Miner on The Office ("I can't believe I got paid to have so much fun"), it doesn't jibe with the East London inflection coming out of his mouth. Can this be the same actor?

Keck's Exclusives: Another Hawaii Five-0 Death?

Larisa Oleynik

Sounds like actress Larisa Oleynik may not be long for Hawaii Five-0. After being touted at the end of last season as a possible fifth member of the team, Larisa's role has been majorly downgraded as new regular characters, including Terry O'Quinn (Lt. Joe White) and Lauren German (Lori), pick up the slack.
