This past Wednesday, while browsing Comcast’s program guide, I noticed M*A*S*H airing on cable channel Spike TV from 9-10AM ET. The very next day, Spike TV ceased to exist and the channel became Paramount Network. It airs a mix of original programming, movies, and syndicated repeats like M*A*S*H, Two and a Half Men, and Friends. Viacom owns both Paramount Network and TV Land, which also airs M*A*S*H.
As far as I can tell, Spike TV began airing M*A*S*H on Friday, December 15th, 2017 with a five-hour marathon consisting of the following episodes:
- “M*A*S*H — The Pilot”
- “Dear Dad”
- “The Long-John Flap”
- “5 O’Clock Charlie”
- “Deal Me Out”
- “As You Were”
- “Alcoholics Unanimous”
- “Adam’s Ribs”
- “Abyssinia, Henry”
Counting Paramount Network, M*A*S*H now airs in syndication on five different cable channels in the United States. The others are SundanceTV, AMC, TV Land, and WGN America. Both Paramount Network and TV Land are owned by Viacom.
(Spike TV used to be known as The National Network. It debuted in 1983 as The Nashville Network.)
I’ve updated my M*A*S*H on Television page to include Paramount Network.
