Lucille to return with comedy pals to Columbia spot (1952)
Columbia Broadcasting Co. publicity men are calling September 15 “L Day,” because that’s when “I Love Lucy,” the nation’s favorite television show according to many a poll, will return to its regular Monday night time slot.
Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley will be in their accustomed parts as the Ricardos and their landlords, the Mertzes.
The premier picture, called “Job Switching,” will find the familiar foursome doing exactly that after quarreling over the handling of the household budgets.
Lucille and Miss Vance will get jobs as chocolate dippers, while Arnaz and Frawley take over their domestic chores.
No further information about the show is available, but it’s a fairly safe bet, judging from past performances, that Lucille will get dipped in the chocolate in addition to doing the dipping.
