As for Lucy's singing, after nine years of "I Love Lucy" on TV, Lucy's fans knew she wasn't going to sound like Barbara Cook, and they didn't expect her to, or even want her to. Everyone got what they expected--Lucy being "Lucy"--and it's unlikely that anyone was very disappointed.

This is not TOO much in defense of Lucille Ball's singing - but I always feel that she deliberately sang worse (on purpose) on the sitcom because that was the joke. No, she was never a great singer, but don't think that Lucille Ball was nearly as bad as Lucille McGillicuddy Ricardo was. ;-)
