Well - I must admit - I didnt know this before now - The final episode of M*A*S*H ranks as the most watched television program of any kind in United States history. An estimated 50,150,000 people tuned in on February 28, 1983. That amounted to 60.2% of all households with a television. Second on the list was the "Who Shot J.R." episode of Dallas.
