TV Shows - AfterMASH

AfterMASH is an American situation comedy that aired on CBS from September 26, 1983 to May 31, 1985. A spin-off of the long-running hit series M*A*S*H (the name is a pun on aftermath), the show took place immediately following the end of the Korean War and chronicled the adventures of three characters from the original series: Colonel Potter (played by Harry Morgan), Klinger (played by Jamie Farr) and Father Mulcahy (played by William Christopher). Morgan, Farr, and Christopher had voted in the minority when the cast of M*A*S*H elected not to continue the original series. AfterMASH premiered in the fall of 1983 in the same Monday night 9:00 P.M. EST. time slot as its predecessor M*A*S*H. It finished 15th out of all network shows for the 1983-1984 season according to Nielsen Media Research television ratings. For its second season CBS moved the show opposite NBC's top ten hit the The A-Team. This is when the ratings dropped considerably. The marketing campaign for AfterMASH featured pictures of Max Klinger (portrayed by Jamie Farr) in a nurse's uniform, shaving off Mr. T's signature mohawk. The implication was that AfterMASH would overtake The A-Team in the ratings, although it never happened.

1 Sequel shows tend to be lousy like Golden Palace or Three's a Crowd. AfterMASH was no exception. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on May 6, 2014, 11:45 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 They trotted out Gary Burghoff to reprise Radar in one episode, and even dug up Col Flagg to make an appearance. That's sad... -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on March 14, 2013, 5:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Actually, I never thought the show was that bad; it got better in the second season, when they replaced J.O. Saunder's character with the one played by David Ackroyd. Ackroyd's character was clearly initially intended to be an analog to Hawkeye Pierce, but Ackroyd was a good enough actor to make the character his own; it's too bad the series ended up being canceled before he really had a chance to go very far with it. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 1, 2010, 4:43 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Another show - like "Joannie Loves Chachi" - that vaulted to the top, only to lose steam and plummeted to obscurity. Did the producers REALLY think Jamie Farr and Henry Morgan could carry a prime-time series or even come anywhere NEAR its predecessor? -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on February 24, 2010, 10:56 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 MASH without Hawkeye, or BJ, or Hot Lips? It just ain't MASH. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on October 8, 2009, 6:21 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The supporting actors, who had no better prospects when MASH ended, got together and starred in their own show, playing the same characters in a completely different setting. Oh yeah, that's a great idea. Boned from the beginning. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on May 2, 2009, 10:28 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
