MeTV is hosting a three-hour special tribute to the series finale of M*A*S*H this Veterans Day, with interviews from the original cast and crew.
The final episode of M*A*S*H, “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen,” aired four decades ago on February 28, 1983. It still holds the record for the most-watched scripted televised event in U.S. history, drawing in an audience of 105 million viewers.
On Friday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m., the cast and creators of the series sit down with MeTV Network for a three-hour special featuring exclusive interviews leading up to the rarely seen, uncut two-and-a-half-hour series finale.
M*A*S*H is a dramatic comedy following a team of doctors stationed at the 4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War, significantly shorter than the series’ 11-season run. The show was based on the 1970 film of the same name, which was inspired by Richard Hooker’s 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors. The series struck a chord with audiences for walking a delicate line between comedy and social commentary.
The series aired from 1972 to 1983 and stars Alan Alda, Wayne Rogers, Loretta Swit, Jamie Farr, William Christopher, Harry Morgan, Gary Burgoff, Mike Farrell, David Ogden Stiers, Larry Linville, and McLean Stevenson. It featured dozens of directors, such as Charles S. Dubin and Burt Metcalfe, and more than a hundred writers, including Larry Gelbart and Dennis Koenig.
MeTV airs four episodes of M*A*S*H Monday through Friday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET and Sundays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. ET. The network is available through cable or satellite providers and free on over-the-air broadcasts. Find where to watch and check out the entire schedule at MeTV.
