CBS Brings Back Classic ‘I Love Lucy’ Episodes for One-Hour Special

In an effort to draw in viewers hankering for nostalgia, CBS will broadcast two colorized versions of “I Love Lucy” starting at 8 p.m. on May 17.

“Lucy and Superman” follows the trials of scheduling kids’ birthday parties. It first aired in 1957 and features George Reeves, star of TV show “Adventures of Superman.” William Holden guest stars in “L.A. at Last!” which has Lucy and Ricky finally landing in Los Angeles because Ricky is appearing in a new motion picture.
