  • Notes

    • On January 19, 1953, Lucy Ricardo gave birth to Little Ricky on I Love Lucy and 92% of U.S. TV viewing audience were tuned in to watch. Lucille Ball gave birth to Desi Arnaz, Jr. that same morning. Newborn Desi Jr. was featured on the very 1st cover of "TV Guide". More people watched this episode than watched the ignauration of President Eisenhower the next day and the coronation of Queen Elizabeth.

      As a side note, in a strange coincidence, on January 19, exactly 43 years later, Marlee Matlin gave birth to her daughter at the same time that the evening's episode of Picket Fences was being aired and her character on the show, Laurie Bey, was giving birth to a son.
