Now I get It
MASH's finale had the most total viewers ever until this years Super Bowl. It still has the highest viewer % of the US total population ever though and will NEVER be topped. I liked it in syndicated reruns as a kid, but never got why it was such a huge finale. Looking back on the end of Cheers, Seinfeld, and now LOST, I get it. People spent over a decade watching Hawkeye, Trapper John, and Hot Lips in Korea. Viewers laughed, they cried, and they had to say goodbye to an old friend. I will miss playfully asking my wife, "you know what's on?"
