Default Tournament Round Two: I Love Lucy/The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour vs. DAG

Some TV had existed before I Love Lucy. But this all time classic paved the way for sitcoms to become a successful genre. Queen of comedy Lucille Ball made sure it would last insisting on being videotaped. She also insisted on real life Cuban husband Desi Arnaz playing her husband on the show. They starred as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. Landlords and best friends Fred and Ethel Mertz (William Frawley and Vivian Vance) made up the other half of the cast. At first I Love Lucy was set in New York and featured the nightclub where Ricky was bandleader. Later it had long vacation arcs in Hollywood and Europe. Then near the end they all moved to Connecticut. The I Love Lucy portion lasted 6 years from 1951-1957 on CBS. That was followed by The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour which aired 13 episodes from 1957-1960 with the same cast of characters. In later seasons Richard Keith played Lucy and Ricky's son Little Ricky.
How it got this far
1st Round: defeated The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet 4-2

DAG is the best one season sitcom of all time, from 2000-2001 on NBC. It sadly aired a few years before short lived shows would start getting put on DVD. Who knows if I will ever get to see this brilliant show again. Starring David Alan Grier as Secret Service Agent Jerome Daggett who messed up and got demoted to the First Lady Judith Whitman (Delta Burke). Lea Moreno was first daughter Camilla Whitman. Lauren Tom was the first lady's secretary Ginger Chin.
