‘I Love Lucy Christmas Special’ Set

Nov 26, 2019  •  Post A Comment

A new one-hour “I Love Lucy” holiday special is ready for prime time, with CBS announcing today that the program, which will feature two episodes of the classic sitcom, will be televised Friday, Dec. 20, from 8-9 p.m. ET/PT.

The show will include “The Christmas Episode” and “Paris at Last,” which has been newly colorized.

CBS said the two episodes will be “seamlessly combined,” with one set of main titles and end credits to run at the beginning and end of the hour.

“I Love Lucy” Christmas specials have aired on the network for the past six years, with each special combining the holiday-themed episode with a different comedy classic. Beginning in 2015, “The Christmas Episode” has been shown colorized in its entirety, with fully colorized flashback scenes that had previously been presented in black and white.

“The Christmas Episode” first aired on CBS on Christmas Eve 1956.

  1. Oh great, more horrible colorization; just look at the photo above.

  2. If you don’t like it, don’t watch it. If CBS thinks its viewers want to watch it, they can provide whatever they want to their viewers.

  3. The beauty of the colorization process is that it starts with a pristine master print. Purists can adjust their set to watch it in b&w and enjoy a much better version than is usually commercially available.

  4. I love It!

  5. Looking forward to seeing Lucille Ball doing what she does best…making people laugh!

  6. I also love it.

  7. If you don’t like don’t watch its that simple. No problemo!
