On September 17, 1972, the television series M*A*S*H debuted on CBS. Although the first season of the series was less than successful, the series was renewed for a second season. The show’s creators were able to adapt and keep the show in the top 15 in ratings for ten years.
All this week, The Whole Earth Blog celebrates the 40th Anniversary of one of the greatest series in television history. With a series of posts, I will provide the history of the series, explore the most iconic episodes, remember members of the cast and crew that have passed away, and much more.
It is no secret that M*A*S*H is my favorite series, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate this iconic series. I hope everyone enjoys the posts, and tunes into a few episodes, as the world celebrates 40 years of M*A*S*H.
