A fairly interesting story on the day that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes (finally) welcomed a child. In 1953, at the height of "I Love Lucy", the real Lucille gave birth to her first son on the same day that the TV series showed the episode of Lucy Ricardo giving birth to "little Ricky". Fairly interesting stuff: The word "pregnant" was never uttered on the show since the producers felt it would be too controversial. And the show of little Ricky's birth was seen by 44 million viewers. I don't know what the population of the U.S. was back then (I'm too lazy to look it up but I know its 300 million now), but I bet that was a huge chunk of the population.
