The Hollywood Reporter has published a list of “The 80 Greatest Moments in TV History” that includes two moments from M*A*S*H. There are a number of caveats about the list to keep in mind: it is not definitive, nor is it chronological, and it is “numbered for efficiency but not ranked in order.” Here are the two M*A*S*H moments:
23. M*A*S*H finale If 106 million people watch you say goodbye, a record not topped until the 2010 Super Bowl, then they really loved you.
65. The death of Col. Henry Blake on M*A*S*H Now that was completely unexpected. And ditto on keeping the story real.
Remember, though, that the moments are not ranked. And many of the other moments aren’t moments at all. The Muppets made the list — all of them — as did every Monty Python skit, all the Teletubbies, the series Twin Peaks and the whole first season of Survivor.
