Google celebrates Lucille Ball's 100th with a doodle

Neither S&P (downgrading the U.S. credit rating) or Afghanistan (31 U.S. soldiers killed in copter crash) can top "I Love Lucy" in Google trends Saturday morning. August 6 is the 100th birthday of Lucille Ball, the much-loved CBS sitcom comedienne, who died on April 26, 1989. This year marks the 60th anniversary of "I Love Lucy."

Google celebrated Lucy's birthday with a search home page doodle, replacing the company logo with a 1950's television set with clickable channels that show clips from "I Love Lucy."

To celebrate this banner year, the Hollywood Museum has launched an extensive exhibit, which will run through Nov. 20, 2011, highlighting her career and achievements.

TV costumes, photographs, letters, scripts, trophies and other memorabilia fill the "Lucille Ball at 100 and I Love Lucy at 60" exhibit, which was unveiled Thursday night with a gala reception with daughter Lucie Arnaz in attendance.
