About the M*A*S*H TV series
Inspired by the 1970 film of the same name and the novel "MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors" by Richard Hooker, the CBS-TV series M*A*S*H was about a team of medical staff and accompanying personnel stationed at the 4077th MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) in Korea in the early 1950's, during the Korean War. The series originally aired on CBS-TV from September 17, 1972 to February 28, 1983, but can still be seen in syndication. The series spanned 11 seasons and 256 episodes, and proved to be hugely successful. After its first season, and except for Season 4 when it rated 14th, it was always rated within the top 10. Along the way, it also garnered 14 Emmy Awards (out of 99 nominations) as well as many other accolades for its writers, producers and actors.
