The Lucy Show

The Lucy Show is an American sitcom that aired on CBS from 1962 to 1968. It was Lucille Ball's follow-up to I Love Lucy. A significant change in cast and premise for the fourth season divides the program into two distinct eras. For the first three seasons, Vivian Vance was the co-star; the earliest scripts were entitled The Lucille Ball Show, but when this title was rejected by CBS, producers thought of calling the show This Is Lucy or The New Adventures of Lucy, before deciding on the title The Lucy Show. Ball won consecutive Emmy Awards as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for the series' final two seasons, 1966–67 and 1967–68. In 1962, two years after Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz had divorced and the final episode of The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour aired, Desilu Productions was struggling. In the spring of 1961, four Desilu-produced situation comedies were cancelled – The Ann Sothern Show. After a two-year run, the comedy series Pete and Gladys, starring Harry Morgan and Cara Williams, was canceled in the spring of 1962.

The red-headed Williams had been promoted as the next Lucille Ball. At that time, Desilu was left with The Untouchables. Arnaz, as president of Desilu, offered Ball an opportunity to return to television in a weekly sitcom. At that time, CBS executives were somewhat dubious as to whether Ball could carry a show without Arnaz, whether she could follow such a landmark series as I Love Lucy, it was "never intended for this program to go beyond a single season." This arrangement was "meant to be a stop-gap measure for the beleaguered studio" and that through the sale of this series, Desilu was able to "force the CBS network to invest in and air other upcoming Desilu products." It was a strategy that Ball would use in the future to take control of The Lucy Show's renewal from CBS. With Arnaz's encouragement and persuasion, Ball agreed to do the show, provided that it would be shown on Monday nights and that she would be reunited with Vivian Vance and her writers from I Love Lucy. CBS agreed to a full season of episodes, The Lucy Show premiered on Monday night, October 1, 1962, at 8:30 p.m.

The show began with Lucille Ball as Lucy Carmichael, a widow with two children and Jerry, living in the fictional town of Danfield, New York, sharing her home with divorced friend Vivian Bagley and her son, Sherman. In order to get Vance to commit to the series, Arnaz acquiesced to her demands for an increase in salary, co-star billing, a more attractive wardrobe and that her character's name be Vivian. After doing I Love Lucy, she was still being called Ethel by people on the street, much to her unhappiness. Although the book on which the show was based, Irene Kampen's Life Without George, centered on two divorcées living together in the same house raising their children, it was decided early on that the Lucy Carmichael character should instead be a widow; the consensus was that fans would be offended with a Lucy, divorced, despite the fact that this was a new character and Ball herself was divorced. The character of Vivian Bagley became the first divorced woman on primetime television. In the show's original format, Lucy had been left with a substantial trust fund by her late husband, managed during the first season by local banker Mr. Barnsdahl.

Comedian Dick Martin, working solo from his longtime partner Dan Rowan, was cast in ten episodes as Lucy's next-door neighbor, Harry Connors, during the show's first season. Character actor Don Briggs was featured in six episodes as Viv's beau, Eddie Collins, Tom Lowell, a young actor seen on various primetime television shows, appeared in three installments as Chris Carmichael's boyfriend, Alan Harper; the first season of The Lucy Show utilized the talents of Bob Carroll Jr. Madelyn Martin, Bob Schiller, Bob Weiskopf in creating its thirty episodes, with Desi Arnaz as executive producer for fifteen of those shows. At the end of its first season, The Lucy Show received rave reviews from the critics and ranked #5 in the Nielsen ratings. Ball was nominated for an Emmy Award as Best Actress in a Series, but lost to Shirley Booth for the NBC comedy hit Hazel. Bolstered by great ratings, the series was renewed for a second year. At the beginning of the 1963–64 season, Desi Arnaz resigned as head of Desilu and as the executive producer of The Lucy Show.

Ball took over as president of the studio and Elliott Lewis replaced Arnaz as executive producer of Ball's series. Dick Martin, Don Briggs, Tom Lowell, Charles Lane left the show; the characters of Harry Connors and Alan Harper were never mentioned again. Briggs would make one more appearance as Eddie Collins in the episode "Lucy Goes Duck Hunting"; the Barnsdahl character was replaced by Theodore J. Mooney, played by Gale Gordon, who would remain with the series for the remainder of its run, surviving the format change. In the episode "Lucy Gets Locked in the Vault", Gordon's character is introduced when Lucy discovers that Mr. Barnsdahl has been transferred to another bank and that the management of her trust fund has been taken over by a new banker; the name "Theodore Mooney" had been used earlier by the actor George Cisar, cast as a police sergeant on thirty-one episodes of Gordon's other CBS sitcom, Dennis the Menace. Gordon had worked with Ball as far back as 1938 on the CBS radio program The Wonder Show and

List of Ontario Hockey Association Junior A seasons

This is a list of Ontario Hockey Association Junior A seasons since the inception of modern Junior A hockey in 1970. In 1970, in Ontario, what would become the Ontario Hockey League vacated the rank of Junior A and declared itself "Major Junior" and became separate from OHA jurisdiction; the remaining Junior A leagues in Ontario remained at the Junior A level, such as the Thunder Bay Junior A Hockey League of the Thunder Bay Amateur Hockey Association, the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey Association of the Northern Ontario Hockey Association, the Central Junior A Hockey League of the Ottawa District Hockey Association. The departure of the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League left the Ontario Hockey Association with no available Junior A league. An independent league, the Western Ontario Junior A Hockey League, was negotiated with and joined the OHA as the Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League. In 1972, a rival league was created for the SOJHL called the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League, the OPJHL was created by taking the top teams from the Metro Junior B Hockey League.

In 1977 the SOJHL folded and in 1981 the OPJHL became the Ontario Junior Hockey League. This league dwindled in size and folded in 1987. In 1989, the Metro Junior B Hockey League left the OHA because the OHA refused to promote it to Junior A. In 1991, the Metro declared itself Junior A; the Metro was a founding member of the Canadian Junior A Hockey League in 1993 and rejoined the OHA, only to leave again in 1995 and rejoin in 1997. In 1992, the Central Junior B Hockey League was given Junior A status by the OHA but continued to play at the Junior B level until 1993 when it was renamed the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League and joined the CJAHL. In 1998, the MetJHL and OPJHL merged to create a single 37-team super-league. In 2008, the OPJHL was renamed the Ontario Junior Hockey League, but was dissolved in the summer of 2009. Starting in 2009, there are two Junior A leagues in the OHA: the Central Canadian Hockey League and the Ontario Junior A Hockey League. 1970–71 | 1971–72 | 1972–73 | 1973–74 | 1974–75 | 1975–76 | 1976–77 WOJHL seasons 1968–69* | 1969–70* denotes season where league was independent of OHA.

List of Jurassic Park characters

The following is a list of fictional characters from Michael Crichton's novel Jurassic Park, its sequel The Lost World, their film adaptations, Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Included are characters from the sequel films Jurassic Park III, Jurassic World, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Jurassic World: Dominion, which are not adaptations and have no original source novels but contain some characters and events based on the fictional universe of Crichton's novels; this table shows the actors who have portrayed them throughout the franchise. A dark grey cell indicates the character was not in the film, or that the character's presence in the film has not yet been announced. A P likeness. A V indicates a voice-only role. A C indicates a cameo appearance. Jurassic Park is a 1990 science fiction novel by Michael Crichton, adapted into a feature film released in 1993; as the novel opens, eccentric billionaire entrepreneur John Hammond founds a high-tech amusement park on the fictional Costa Rican island of Isla Nublar.

It is filled with dinosaurs cloned with the help of DNA harvested from prehistoric insects found in amber. In order to open the park, he must first get investors and obtain insurance by gaining the approval of several experts in different fields. Hammond invites paleontologists Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler, mathematician Ian Malcolm, his investors' attorney, Donald Gennaro, to tour the park. Upon arrival, the experts begin to discover errors in the system, such as dinosaurs in the wrong pens and evidence of dinosaurs breeding in the wild; these errors occur though Jurassic Park is being run by expert computer engineers and well-established technical systems. Soon after, because of a tropical storm and industrial sabotage by a disgruntled technician, the park undergoes several technical failures and the dinosaurs escape their enclosures. A Tyrannosaurus rex attacks the group; the staff make a desperate attempt to regain control of the situation. As Ian Malcolm had predicted from the start, it becomes quite clear that they had never been in control.

Considered a cautionary tale on biological tinkering in the same spirit as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the book uses the mathematical concept of chaos theory and its philosophical implications to explain the inevitable collapse of the park. The first two film sequels take place on Isla Sorna, a nearby island known as "Site B", where the dinosaurs were engineered and nurtured for a few months, before being moved to Isla Nublar. Jurassic World, the third sequel, sees the story return to Isla Nublar. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the fourth sequel takes place on Isla Nublar. Appears in: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, Jurassic World: Dominion Portrayed by: Sam NeillDr. Alan Grant is the main protagonist in the first novel, the first and third films. In the novel, he is described as a barrel-chested bearded man with a strong affinity for children those interested in dinosaurs. Grant, based on paleontologists Philip J. Currie and Jack Horner, is said to be one of the world's most renowned paleontologists, specializing in hadrosaur and other duck-billed dinosaurs such as Maiasaura.

His scientific achievements, including the first description of maiasaurs, are those of Horner and Robert R. Makela. In the book, Grant tells the children. Before the events of the novel, Grant was approached by Donald Gennaro, chief counsel for InGen, to provide information on the requirements for the care of infant dinosaurs, claiming it to be for a museum exhibit. Grant agrees to Hammond's invitation to tour the park, finding it difficult to turn down the request from a major financial donor, unaware that Hammond has cloned living dinosaurs; when the creatures escape, Grant becomes stranded in the park with Hammond's grandchildren. Throughout a large portion of the book and the two children explore the park trying to find their way back to the rest of the group. In the film, much of this period is omitted, with only a few key events occurring onscreen. In the second novel, The Lost World, Grant is only mentioned. Richard Levine tells Ian Malcolm, he is mentioned a second time when Levine criticizes Grant's theory that a Tyrannosaurus could not function in rainy climates.

The film portrays Grant differently than the novel, giving him an introverted personality and a dislike of children. However, over the course of the first film, he warms to Hammond's grandchildren; this was because Spielberg wanted to "provide a source of dramatic tension that did not exist in the novel". In the film, Grant specializes in Velociraptors, believes that birds are related to dinosaurs. By the end of the film, his experience on the island changes his view of children and he decides not to endorse Jurassic Park, he is the main protagonist of Jurassic Park III. In the years since the incident on Isla Nublar, Grant has continued his research on fossils, shrugging off the notion that such endeavors are moot with living dinosaurs on Isla Sorna by claiming that InGen's creatures are just "genetically engineered theme park monsters" and not real dinosaurs; as in the first film, his research is focused on Velociraptors and he has proposed new theories regarding raptor intelligence. Grant reluctantly agrees to join an wealthy couple for an aerial tour of Isla Sorna, Jurassic Park's "Site B", in exchange for funding for his dig site.

However, the plane crashes, they become stranded on the island. While navigating it, Grant realizes that his theories about raptors – that they have
