Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen…the end of M*A*S*H

Twenty-nine years ago today, M*A*S*H concluded in grand fashion breaking all viewership records. To this day, many of those records still stand and are likely to never be broken as there were not as many station choices in 1983 as there are today.

The series finale of M*A*S*H is perhaps one of the greatest in television history. The end of the series eleven year run (more than three times longer than the actual Korean War) was watched by an overwhelming majority of television viewers. In San Francisco, for example, 82% of those watching televsion on February 28, 1983 were watching M*A*S*H.

The shows title was fitting closing to the series. I urge everyone watch the classic finale at least once. The emotion of the actors are genuine as it was not just the Korean War coming to an end, but the end of a brilliant series.
