Babe Ruth hits his first home run, the Hindenburg goes down in flames, the four-minute mile barrier is broken, "I Love Lucy" goes off the air, and President Clinton is hit with a sexual harassment suit, all on this day.
1957: The sitcom "I Love Lucy" airs its final episode. The show, starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance and William Frawley, is recognized as one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. It was the most watched show in the United States in four of its six seasons, and was the first to end its run at the top of the Nielsen ratings.
