Ethel And Albert aired from April 1953 until July 1956 on NBC, CBS, and ABC.

Ethel And Albert was one of many popular radio shows of the 1940's that had a second life on television in the 1950's. The format was extremely simple and down to Earth following the middle-aged Ethel and Albert Arbuckle ( Peg Lynch, Alan Bunce), through the minor triumphs and crisis of everday life. A gentle realism was the keynote of this series with blown fuses, burnt-out lightbulbs and ruined dinners being about the worst things that happened in Sandy Harbor where the couple lived. On radio, The Arbuckles had generally been the only characters heard but a few friends and neighbors wandered through the tv version from time to time.

Peggy Lynch who played Ethel created and wrote the series, which began on radio over a local station in Minnesota in 1938 and went network in 1944( Lynch's radio co-star for several years was Richard Widmark). Ethel And Albert's first television exposure was during the 1952-1953 season, when it was telecast as a regular 15 minute segment of The Kate Smith Hour; In April 1953 it was given it's own half-hour slot on Saturday nights on NBC. In 1955 it was carried by CBS as a summer replacement for December Bride and in the fall of 1955 ABC broadcast the show on Friday. By the spring of 1956, It had become the last live sitcom regularly broadcast on network television. Another curiosity was the fact that the theme song of this series " Love Nest" was also the signature theme of another well known couple which had another sitcom on radio and tv " George Burns and Gracie Allen."
