Long before the world got hooked on “Game of Thrones,” “I Love Lucy” was almost unprecedented in popularity — and daring in content for the time.

在世界对《权利的游戏》(Game of Thrones)着迷之前,《我爱露西》(I Love Lucy)的受欢迎程度几乎前所未有,而它的内容对当时来说也极其大胆。

Lucy was one of the first pregnant characters shown on U.S. television, and 44 million viewers tuned to CBS 65 years ago today to see Lucille Ball’s character become a mother.

露西是美国电视中出现的最早的怀孕角色之一,65年前的今天,4400万观众收看了哥伦比亚广播公司(CBS)电视台,观看露西尔·鲍尔(Lucille Ball)扮演的角色成为一名母亲。

(Lucy gave birth to Ricky on the air the same night, it turns out, that Ms. Ball gave birth to her second child.)

(露西在节目里生下瑞奇的同一个晚上,鲍尔生下了她的第二个孩子。)

Audience numbers like that episode’s have since been far surpassed — the Super Bowl, for instance, has drawn more than 100 million viewers for each of the past eight years. But almost 72 percent of TVs in the U.S. were tuned in to “I Love Lucy” that day, an astonishing feat.

像那一集的观众人数记录早就被远远超越,例如,在过去八年中,超级碗(Super Bowl) 每年吸引了超过一亿名观众。但《我爱露西》在那一天创下的近72%的收视率还是一个令人震惊的成绩。

According to Nielsen’s, the final episode of “M*A*S*H,” in 1983, had the highest rating of any fictional show in U.S. history, 125 million. But few shows can rival the positive response that the “I Love Lucy” birth episode, and the arrival of Ms. Ball’s second child, elicited.

据尼尔森的数据,在1983年,《陆军野战医院》(M*A*S*H)的最后一集获得了美国历史上任何虚构类节目的最高收视人数,高达1.25亿人。但很少有节目可以比得上《我爱露西》关于分娩的那集,以及鲍尔第二个孩子的出生所引发的正面反馈。

“One million viewers responded with congratulatory telephone calls, telegrams, letters or gifts,” The Times noted in Ms. Ball’s obituary in 1989.

“一百万观众用恭贺电话、电报、信件或礼物做出了回应,”1989年,时报在鲍尔的讣告中写道。
