A Half-Century Later, I Love Lucy Still Making Millions December 31, 2012

The last episode of I Love Lucy aired 55 years ago. But the classic sitcom is still a cash cow for CBS:

The show brings in around $20 million to the studio annually, according to CBS Chief Executive Leslie Moonves, speaking at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia Conference in New York Thursday.

“I Love Lucy” aired from 1951-57, and featured Ball and Arnaz as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo; the couple were married for 20 years and owned a production company, Desilu Productions, together. The series currently shows in reruns on TV Land.
