Where were you 32 years ago today? Were you watching “Goodbye, Farewell an Amen” during its original broadcast on CBS? More than 60 percent of all television households in the country tuned in for that historic broadcast on Monday, February 28th, 1983.
Roughly 105.9 million viewers were watching that night, which makes “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” the seventh most-watched television broadcast in the United States behind six Super Bowl games. Its 60.2 Nielsen rating makes it by far the highest-rated, however.
The last time I watched the series finale was January 2007. When was the last time you saw it?
