End of an era: Lucy bows out after 23 years

Lucille Ball says she is calling it quits as a weekly television entertainer at the end of this season.

The red-haired comedienne, 62, announced Tuesday she will limit her appearances on television to specials, but not return to weekly situation comedies.

Her three series, “I Love Lucy,” “The Lucy Show” and “Here’s Lucy” have been running and re-running on network and local stations since 1951.
