The episode was called “Lucy Goes to a Hollywood Premiere.” Kirk never appeared on many television shows because he mainly focused on movies.
After Spartacus, he did make a few television cameos here and there. He made a few appearances on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. In addition, he appeared on The Lucy Show. In the episode, Lucy gets to go to a major Hollywood premiere. She is working as a theater usher.
