Plot

It was developed by Larry Gelbart as the first original spin-off series adapted from the 1970 feature film M*A*S*H, which, in turn, was based on Richard Hooker‘s 1968 novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors. The finale episode remains both the most-watched finale of any television series and the most-watched episode.
