America's third most popular TV show during its first season, I Love Lucy skyrocketed to number one during season Two -- no small thanks to the fact that the real-life pregnancy of Lucille Ball was brilliantly written into the script (though such was TV censorship at the time that the would "pregnant" could never be spoken). On January 19, 1953, Lucy Ricardo was wheeled into the delivery room -- the same night that the actress who played her gave birth to her son Desi Jr. "Lucy Goes to the Hospital" was not only the most-watched TV episode up to that time, but the news of the "double birth" was of sufficient import to knock coverage of President Eisenhower's first inauguration off the front pages of newspapers all over the country! Even without the legendary "Lucy is expecting" story arc and climax, season Three of I Love Lucy deserves special mention in the record books for yielding one of the series' all-time best and funniest episodes: "Job Switching," in which Lucy Ricardo and Ethel Mertz (Vivian Vance) end up working the conveyor belt at a candy factory -- with marvelously messy results. In addition to regulars Ball, Vance, Desi Arnaz (as Ricky Ricardo), and William Frawley (as Fred Mertz), the third season of I Love Lucy featured a stellar collection of top character actors including Charles Lane, Hans Conried, and Elizabeth Patterson in her first appearance as the Ricardos' fussy neighbor, Mrs. Trumble.
