Viewing figures for the final episode of MASH broke the record that had been set by the Dallas Who Shot J. R? episode, making it the most watched TV broadcast in American history, a record it held for a remarkable 27 years.

The 256th episode, a 2½-hour long movie was entitled Goodbye, Farewell and Amen and was broadcast today in 1983 to 105.97 million viewers.

Martinis featured regularly in MASH and Hawkeye famously liked his dry: "I'd like a dry martini, Mr. Quoc, a very dry martini. A very dry, arid, barren, desiccated, veritable dustbowl of a martini. I want a martini that could be declared a disaster area." We're very happy to offer up a Dry Martini to MASH today.
