Check out this chart laying out how television's first great female comedian changed the course of pop culture.
I Love Lucy

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. 

Most known for "I Love Lucy," few realize just how many breakthroughs Ball had within the show and outside as well. This graphic breaks down her work as a comedy legend, as a person depicting both interracial romances and pregnancies on-screen and, perhaps most importantly, her work as the first-ever female studio producer.
