On this day in 1983, the series finale of M*A*S*H aired on CBS. The episode, entitled Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen, was a fitting end to the series as it documented the end of the war. The two and half hour episode was watched by a record setting audience, and still holds the record for largest percentage of the American viewing audience.
M*A*S*H has long been my favorite television series, and its finale is one of the greatest series finales ever produced. It was a fitting end to a series that lasted three times longer than the Korean War. If you get a chance, catch a rerun of M*A*S*H today or this weekend and enjoy one of most iconic television series ever produced.
