Summary

Whether it was Lucy and Ethel (Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance) or Eve Arden as Miss Brooks, Gale Storm flaunting 1950s conventions as Margie, or Bea Arthur as Maude, flaunting every convention about female behavior we could think of, we all have our favorite funny ladies, who brought us laughter every week, and, for a half-hour at least, took us away from our daily problems. Classic TV expert Michael Karol, in a series of original essays, examines the roles these Sitcom Queens played on TV, and how they became the beloved TV icons of generation after generation of TV fans. Featuring a sitcom timeline and a funny ladies Top Ten, plus a Foreword by Gale Storm, an Introduction by Doris Singleton, and commentary by Larry Storch.
