    Life With Lucy was an attempt to revive the glory days of Ms. Ball's pinnacle during the huge successes of I love Lucy, The Lucy Show, and Here's Lucy. Unfortunately by the mid-1980s the spark was gone. Partly because a new breed had emerged that did not appreciate her brand of humor (too wholesome) and partly because to her fans nothing could equal her previous successes. She herself had said following I Love Lucy that she would never do another series because nothing could top its success. Well, her subsequent series came very close. If she had made that statement 25 years later she would have been right. It was a nice try though.
