TV: “The Lucy Show” Will Return Next Season

Mar. 3, 1964 - Lucille Ball, who recently announced that she would not continue “The Lucy Show” next season, was reported today to have changed her mind. Her television show is expected to continue on Mondays on CBS-TV but will be moved from 8:30 to 9:00 p.m. “The Andy Griffith Show,” now televised at 9:30, will move to 8:30 p.m.

The comedienne’s decision apparently was reached after abandonment of plans for continuation of “The Greatest Show on Earth,” to which she had committed her supervision as president of Desilu Productions. The show’s sponsor, Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corporation, failed to agree on contract terms for next season, so ABC is dropping the program. This left Desilu without a show sold for next season.
