TV Loves Lucy: This Infographic Reveals Lucille Ball's Massive Influence

Yesterday would have been Lucille Ball’s 103rd birthday, so in honor of the woman who had such a profound influence on the TV world, Decider has created an infographic that shows just how influential the actress/comedienne/studio executive was both in her lifetime and afterwards.
