Almost six decades after they first aired on CBS, a pair "I Love Lucy" episodes will be rebroadcast on the network.
Dubbed the I Love Lucy Christmas Special (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), the episodes will look different than they did when they first aired back in 1956. They've been colorized, so, yes, the Santa suits are red and not gray.
First up is "The Christmas Episode," which features Lucy, Ricky, Ethel and Fred getting ready for the holiday and reminiscing about Little Ricky's birth. Then it's the grape-stomping episode - actually titled "Lucy's Italian Movie" - in which Lucy got in a fight with an Italian woman in a vat full of grapes.
