In 1952, “I Love Lucy” Fittingly, the show is pure Lucy — sidekick Ethel (Vivian Vance) doesnʹt even have a cameo. Try to say it out loud: Vitameatavegamin. Thatʹs the name of the product Lucy is hawking for a TVshow Ricky is hosting. In the classic “Lucy Does a TV Commercial,” Ballʹs talent for physical comedy is at its most vibrant and resourceful. Using her usual treachery to get the job, Lucy begins to run through her spot for the director (Ross Elliot). As the Vitameatavegamin Girl on a TV variety show, Lucy Ricardo is supposed to “spoon her way to health,” but instead gets totally snockered on the health elixir sheʹs promoting. The rest of the commercial doesnʹt exactly dance off the tongue, either: “Do you poop out at parties? Are you unpopular?” Now imagine saying all that while drunk. Because in addition to containing vitamins and nutrients, Vitameatavegamin packs a 46-proof punch. Still, Lucy, hapless, hopeless Lucy, nails the commercial — until she tastes the product. The revolted face she makes is priceless (made only more so by the line she has to deliver: “So tasty, too! Just like candy!”). Now the director wants her to try it again. Swig. Once more. Swig. The hiccups start; Lucy gets pie-eyed. By the fifth run-through, she has forgotten her lines. In the sixth the malaprops flow (“Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?”), as does the mangling of the product name (“Mita-meata-megamin”; “Mita-vata-meaty-mac”). After mangling the productʹs name in every imaginable way, Lucy finally resorts to calling it “this stuff.” By any name, this heady concoction continues to make “happy, peppy people” of us all. Lucy is totally smashed. But oddly enough, the nasty elixir is now delicious. There are countless reasons to love Lucy, televisionʹs greatest physical comic, but none greater than this. From the first spoonful she squeamishly swallows to her early, slightly sloshed queries — “Do you pop out at parties? Are you unpoopular?” — to her final drunken swig right out of the “bittle lottle,” Ball builds the mirth to a riotous climax.

In 1993, At the end of a stunningly bad season of episodes ripping off other TV and movie projects, NBC decides this will be the final “Quantum Leap.” Doctor Sam Beckett leaps into a bar in the mining town of Cokesburg on his own birthdate, August 5, 1953, where he learns from a bartender named Al (ala “Wizard of Oz”) that he has always the power to leap home. (Series creator Don Bellisario and star Scott Bakula both say this bartender represents God.) Beckettʹs final leap isnʹt home but into the Vietnam era, where he lets his buddy Alʹs first wife Beth know heʹs not “Missing In Action,” thus saving Alʹs marriage, which may have endangered his own cosmic existence as the closing frames reveal: “(Beth) and Al have four daughters and will celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary in June. Doctor Sam Beckett never returned home.” (Had the network renewed the series, viewers would have seen an alternative ending.)

In 1994, In the Frasier episode “Author, Author” An essential chapter in defining the brothers as fellow psychiatrists who could use therapy.

Shedding their stuffed shirts for undershirts, they call each other names (“Fat face!” “Spindly!”) and wrestle like children.

In 1994, Singapore caned American teenager Michael Fay for vandalism, a day after the sentence was reduced from six lashes to four in response to an appeal by President Bill Clinton, who considered the punishment too harsh. “Weird Al” Yankovic sang a verse of that in Headline News.

In 1997, The first Fox series and at that time the oldest sitcom “Married With Children” broadcasted what was believed to be the final first-run show after a 11 season run (actually ten years and one month). It seemed that way until I learned off the Internet that Fox aired another new episode during the summer. In 2002, the FX network aired the lost episode that Fox never aired involving Al and Peg making love in a courtroom.

In 1998, Today in Late Show w/ Letterman History: In honor of the upcoming Tony Awards, the LATE SHOW presents its own tribute to Broadway — its very own mini musical production called “Homecoming.” Featuring the song “Jimmyʹs Coming Home,” written by the LATE SHOW writers with music by Paul Shaffer, the hilarious Broadway rip-off stars Broadwayʹs Marc Kudish and Leigh Zimmerman.

In 2000, “Boy Meets World” had its series finale on ABC. Reruns continued through the summer.

In 2004, Major League Baseball announces each team, based on the comfort level of the franchise, will promote the movie Spider-Man Two during the first weekend of interleague play, June 11 to 13. Seeing it as an opportunity to market the game to younger fans, the promotion will include placing a Spider-Man logo on all the bases.

In 2010, Satellite provider DirecTV and the Yes Network announce their plans to televise what is believed to be the first major league baseball game to air in three dimensions.
