I still can't believe how many viewers MASH got.
Keep in mind that back then, for most Americans, there were only two other options of what to watch on that particular night. The show got a 77 share (which means 77% of sets were tuned to that show) - nothing is ever going to top that in our 500 channel (plus online video) universe of today.
