Super Bowl Breaks MASH’s Ratings Record

Written by , Posted in General

The Super Bowl set a new record for all-time viewership. The series finale of MASH, which aired in 1983, garnered 105.97 viewers, and 106.5 viewers tuned in for this year’s Super Bowl. Some speculate that the Super Bowl had such high viewership because many were rooting for a city and not just a team. Others speculate that more people were watching at home because of the economy which helped the Nielsen ratings.

Before the baby boomers start to cry about MASH, please note that it still holds the record for all-time viewership for a series finale.
