This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
Aired from 1972 to 1983 with 251 episodes. What else can I say about MASH? Although it started out with poor ratings it became wildly popular, held the record for most watched episode with something like 125 million people tuning into the final episode. As an aside on that, the NYC public works reported one of the largest surges in water usage that night also. Within three minutes after the show ended something like 77% of New Yorkers had flushed their toilets causing the... ahem, flush hour traffic.
If you're going to buy the series on DVD make sure you get a collection where you can turn off the laugh track. There are shows where a laugh track is cool, generally I don't like them, doesn't work for this show at all IMO.
Yep that's Sorrell Booke better known as Boss Hogg from The Dukes of Hazzard in the gum commercial. Booke also appeared as a guest star on MASH as General Barker in the episodes "Chief Surgeon Who?" and "Requiem for a Lightweight".
