My Favorite Husband Old Time Radio Program

My Favorite Husband
30 minutes comedy shows

My Favorite Husband was Lucille Ballís first regular radio show. It debuted in July 1948 and ran until 1951. Initially written as a situation comedy about an affluent banker and his wife, it was soon rewritten to be more accessible to the burgeoning middle class, reflecting post-war suburban life.

My Favorite Husband: Getting Old
My Favorite Husband: Baseball
Lucille Ball was cast as Liz Cooper, wife of George Cooper, played by Richard Denning. My Favorite Husband was the precursor to the I Love Lucy show, and in it Ball honed the scatterbrained housewife character that would become her trademark. As on her later television show, Ballís character was constantly getting into jams of her own devising, with the willing assistance of friend Iris Atterbury, wife of Georgeís boss, much to the chagrin of long-suffering husband George. The roles of Georgeís boss Rudolph Atterbury and Iris Atterbury, models for Fred and Ethel Mertz, were played by the redoubtable Gale Gordon (Mayor LaTrivia on Fibber McGee and Molly, and Principal Osgood Conklin on Our Miss Brooks) and Bea Benaderet (Fibber McGee and Molly, The Jack Benny Show, Campbell Playhouse), respectively. Gordon and Benaderet were given first consideration for the roles of the Mertzes, but contract conflicts forced them to turn down the television roles.

The initial sponsor for the show was Jell-O, and the gelatin dessert became an integral part of the show, including the usual greeting of "Jell-O Everybody" from Ball at the beginning of the show.

My Favorite Husband ended its run in 1951, concurrent with the debut of I Love Lucy.
