50th Anniversary Salute to M*A*S*H

Wednesday, November 2 to Sunday, November 13
M*A*S*H remains one of the most indelible and influential comedies in the history of television. The series, debuting on September 17, 1972, artfully interwove comedy and drama to show the horrors of war with a dark satirical streak. To celebrate M*A*S*H’s fiftieth anniversary and Veterans Day on November 11, we have selected some of the show’s most groundbreaking episodes, including the landmark finale, which remains the most watched scripted program with 106 million viewers. You will discover, as the New York Times recently noted, M*A*S*H “anticipated today’s TV dramedies, showing that great comedy could be more than just funny.”
