Trying to get the citizens of our country to actively focus on any one thing at the same time is as probable as successfully catching a gnat swarm with a pool net. However, that’s just what the series finale of the television series M*A*S*H* nearly accomplished on this day back in 1983. Without aid from a TiVo, a YouTube, or a DVR, roughly 125 Million people tuned in to watch Hawkeye depart the storied 4077 camp.
