Did You Know?


For its second season CBS moved the show to Tuesday nights at 8:00 EST., opposite NBC's top ten hit The A-Team (1983), and launched a marketing campaign featuring illustrations by Sanford Kossin of Max Klinger in a nurse's uniform, shaving off Mr. T's signature Mohawk, theorizing that "AfterMASH" would take a large portion of "The A-Team"'s audience. In fact, the exact opposite occurred, as "AfterMASH"'s ratings plummeted to near the bottom of the television rankings and the show was canceled nine episodes into its second season, while "The A-Team" continued until 1987, with 97 episodes.

A Logical follow up.
20 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

M.A.S.H. dealt with the horrors of war. AFTERMASH dealt with the facts of life about coming home from a war. I always liked Colonel Sherman Potter and wanted to see more of him. but I also wanted Hawkeye and BJ and the others . Considering that Harry Morgan loved playing Sherman Potter so much he wanted to continue playing the role and the same went for Jamie Farr and William Christopher as well. The Stories were puff pieces but they also dealt with real issues as well. Klinger dealing with a crooked Real estate agent who was racist against his wife. Potter and the hospital dealing with the effects of Atomic radiation Among other story lines . I loved it. To me the show made sense after all these people didn't just vanish they had lives before and after M.A.S.H. pretty much like Trapper John Did. But the real sad point is the show suffered from bad timing. Being put up against a Juggernaut like The A-Team did not fare too well for the show. I wish the show would have had years but we are lucky we got what we did. they Say this show was one of the 50 worst ideas in TV history well let me say this . They were wrong. The Show just might be one of the most under rated TV shows in history.
