    Keep in mind that Lucy retained ownership of HERE'S LUCY after she sold Desilu to Paramount,not CBS.

    True, but when CBS released The Lucy Show on DVD, they included a flyer inside their case for MPI's Here's Lucy release, so clearly they helped each other out in some way.

    Cross-promotion is hardly "Helping".

    I thought the Clampetts going to England and then the subsequent Jethro joining the reserves, Cousin Roy (Clark) coming to visit, etc. were still funny though it did deviate from the standard practice of most story lines being one episode and done.
    I do like seasons 8 & 9 but they were certainly not the typical Clampett fare. Jed never got scammed in the early years but in the last two seasons, Phil Silvers' character of Honest John took advantage of Jed for millions. Then the women's lib movement story hit with the attempt to modernize the show to current issues. My understanding is that TBH was an escape from the current issues, not a reflection thereof. You had Jethro and his Elvis-clone sideburns and Ellie didn't look like her younger self she had been in previous years. As much as I love the show, I think it would've been cancelled soon enough even without the "rural purge" that hit so many shows.

    The Clampetts went to England in seasons 6 and 7. IMO, Season 6 is one of the funniest with the Robin Hood of Griffith Park episode one of the greatest tv episodes ever. Season 7 was weaker and really fell off at the end. Still, watching Cousin Roy and the Electric Zoo perform The Great Pretender continues to crack me up. Paul Henning was listed as the sole writer for most of seasons 8 and 9, but he seems to have left most of the drafting up to a pool of idiots who had no appreciation or feel for the show.
