I believe that the first interracial couple on T.V. was Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez in the show "I Love Lucy" Lucy and Desi had to fight for Desi's part on the show because the studio wanted a white man to play her husband. They used their own money to go on a tour doing I Love Lucy bits in theaters to rave reviews. Only when it was well received did CBS agree to let Desi star as Lucy’s husband.
