I Love Lucy Day is dedicated to the popular sitcom I Love Lucy in the 1950s. This comedy premiered on October 15, 1951 and continued as a sitcom until 1957. Filming took place in Hollywood and the set was attended by a live audience. When the main character was pregnant, it was decided to show reruns of already filmed episodes.
