Adapted from the 1970 feature film, M*A*S*H premiered on CBS in 1972, and aired for eleven seasons (far longer than the three-year Korean War the series depicted). M*A*S*H became one of the highest rated shows on TV, and its powerful final episode — a landmark moment in television history — was the all-time most-watched TV program with an astounding 120 million viewers. The show earned multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe Awards® and was named one of the greatest shows of all time by TV Guide.
One of the show’s most endearing and unforgettable characters was Maxwell Klinger, played by Jamie Farr. Jamie brought heart and hilarity to the show as the cross-dressing corporal who hoped that wearing dresses would earn him a Section 8 discharge.
Beginning Oct. 31st, Jamie will host M*A*S*H: The Best by Farr, a week-long collection of his personal favorite episodes, only on MeTV, America’s #1 all classic television network. Then on Nov. 11, Veteran’s Day, MeTV will present the record-setting final episode,”Goodbye, Farewell and Amen”, and Jamie will be joined by many of the cast and creators of M*A*S*H for the original special, Me TV Remembers the M*A*S*H Finale.
