1930-50s Tv American Comedy Show About A Man and His Wife

I remember the show being in black and white and I'm fairly certain it was recorded with a live audience because the husband of the show would start each episode talking directly to the audience. I think there was a lot of fourth wall breaking in that regard because I think everything would stop so he could monologue to the viewers about what was going on or whatever. He was the straight man to his wife, who very often get up to mischief. The wife isn't very... bright but she's funny which is why the husband loves her. There's one specific episode I remember where a couple of friends come to visit and the wife does or says something stupid and in private one of the male friends laughingly asks the husband why he stays with her to which the husband replies "because I love her".

 The wife's voice is fairly high-pitched but that about all I can remember about her.


If someone knows the show, I'd love to find it!
