'I Love Lucy is an American multinational television sitcom that originally ran on CBS from October 15, 1951 to May 6, 1957, with a total of 180 half-hour episodes spanning six seasons. The show, which was the first scripted television program to be shot on 35mm film in front of a studio audience, by cinematographer Karl Freund, won five Emmy Awards and received numerous nominations and honors. It was the first show ever to feature an ensemble cast. It is often regarded as one of the greatest and most influential sitcoms in history. In 2012, it was voted the \'Best TV Show of All Time\' in a survey conducted by ABC News and People magazine. Even though it was immensely popular, I Love Lucy still encountered controversy when one of its episodes had to be pulled from syndication. The episode was called \"The Ricardos Visit Cuba\". This episode was a fun and innocent trip for the Ricardo family, who traveled to Cuba to visit family. Due to political tensions at the time, networks and even some of the show\'s producers were concerned that the episode would be too controversial. As a result, it was taken off the air immediately following its first run. The rest of I Love Lucy continued without any issues, and ten years later, this controversial episode would return to televisions. Make sure you watch the whole video, as we also take a look at one of the other controversial moments in I Love Lucy history - Lucy\'s pregnancy. Lucy was the first pregnant woman to be shown on television, a decision that would solidify the show\'s place in history while shaping the future of television. In this video, we\'ll look at how this decision came to be, and how it was handled by the cast, producers and audiences. Like this content?
