    Did anyone else see the segment of pregame where they did a news piece on the economy, one bad thing after another about job losses, falling profits, increased foreclosers followed immediately by the announcement that NBC set record for advertising revenue(200+million). I wonder how much a 30 second ad during the final M.A.S.H episode cost.

    The anticipation and buildup to the airing of "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" was almost unprecedented, especially for a regular television series (in contrast to an awards show, sporting event, or special event). Interest from advertisers prompted CBS, the network that aired M*A*S*H, to sell 30-second commercial blocks for $450,000 (about $906,000 in 2006) each – a higher cost than even for the Super Bowl of that year.[5]

    How can that be when this year's Super Bowl didn't even get as many viewers as last year's?

    funny..... even NFL.com says it was only the second most watched superbowl ever, except for last years, and last years superbowl was #2 all time behind MASH, so somebody is wrong here

    Dunno, but I actually hope that M.A.S.H. is still on top.
    It was truly brillent.
    I wonder if they look at pure numbers or take percentages into account.
    My guess is that a larger percentage of Americans watched M.A.S.H. because of a smaller population and fewer tevelision households.
    I would bet that that percentage will never be topped.

    I have heard that before about him.
    As a human then he fails.
    But as an actor portraying a surgeon in the Korean war, he was amazing.

    Nah, I think I dislike Alda more than the Chiller... When Childress comes out with a book called, "Things Overheard While Talking to Myself"... I'll hate him as much as Alda.
