M*A*S*H Finale Aired This Day in 1983
All eyes on Hawkeye. For a long period it held the record for the most-watched TV episode of all time. The M*A*S*H finale titled "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" aired on CBS this day, February 28, 1983. Chances are very good that you were watching that night. It is hard to fathom that it was 34 years ago. The two-and-a-half hour episode, directed by its star Alan Alda, held onto its "most-watched" status until February of 2010 when Super Bowl XLIV surpassed it.
