AfterMASH TV networks can't leave well enough alone. In February 1983, MASH exited the airwaves in a blaze of glory after 11 successful and brilliant seasons of quality television. Seven months later, CBS reunited a few of its characters in a sequel titled AfterMASH. (The title was intended to be a pun on "aftermath".) The show was set 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 (Jamie Farr) and Father Mulcahy (William Christopher). By several quirks of fate, all three end up working at a veterans' hospital in Missouri. Rosalind Chao rounded out the starring cast as Soon-Lee Klinger, a Korean refugee whom Klinger met in the last two episodes of MASH and married at the end of the series. AfterMASH premiered on September 26, 1983 in the same Monday night 9:00 p.m. EST. time slot that MASH once had. Curious and faithful MASH fans provided vast audience numbers for that first broadcast. AfterMASH debuted at #1 in the weekly TV ratings--the first time a new show had done that since Laverne and Shirley. It finished 10th out of all network shows for the 1983-1984 season according to Nielsen Media Research television ratings. For its second season CBS disastrously moved the show to Tuesday nights at 8:00 p.m. EST., opposite NBC's top-ten hit The A-Team. CBS launched an optimistic marketing campaign featuring illustrations by Sanford Kossin of Max Klinger in a nurse's uniform, shaving off Mr. T's signature mohawk, theorizing AfterMASH would take a large portion of The A-Team's audience. The exact opposite occurred: AfterMASH's ratings plummeted to near the bottom of the television rankings and the show was canceled just nine episodes into its second season. Twenty-nine AfterMASH episodes had aired, one was shown as late as May 1985. A thirtieth episode was completed but was never broadcast. Comparisons to the original MASH were inevitable and largely unfavorable. In 2002, TV Guide listed AfterMASH, perhaps uncharitably, as the seventh-worst TV series ever.

NBC Jeopardy - 2000th Episode The original version of the quiz show Jeopardy!--some fans maintain it was the best--aired on NBC from March 1964 to January 1975. It was hosted by the great Art Fleming. Not many full episodes of the Fleming-era Jeopardy! were preserved. Here is the complete 2000th episode from February 1972 featuring the three all-time leading money winners at the time. The abridged game was played for charity under special rules, so it's not a true look at a typical Jeopardy! game. Nevertheless, it's an Art Fleming-hosted Jeopardy! so enjoy!

Banned Snickers Commercial In 2008 this Snickers commercial featuring Mr. T aired briefly in Great Britain before being yanked off the airwaves after complaints by the homosexual community who claimed it encouraged violence against gays. Interestingly, most of the complaints came from the United States--where the commercial never aired.

Bradford City Grandstand Fire - 1985 Here is video of a terrible sports calamity: On May 11, 1985, English soccer club Bradford City were celebrating their promotion from the third division to the second division, having mathematically clinched the championship with a week to spare. The final game of the 1984-85 season at Valley Parade Stadium was against Lincoln City. More than 11,000 spectators were on hand--about twice the home average that season--to witness the festive pregame ceremonies featuring the championship trophy presentation. Yorkshire Television, with John Helm providing the commentary, was present to record the match for a tape-delayed broadcast the following day. Everyone was in a jovial mood until about 40 minutes after the match began. A fire broke out underneath Section G of the wooden grandstand--an antiquated structure that had not been modified since 1911 and was slated for demolition at the end of the season. The blaze likely started from a discarded match or cigarette that fell through the grandstand's floor boards. Beneath the grandstand was an enormous amount of flammable material; the team used the area for storage of old programs, among other things. Because of windy conditions, within four minutes a huge fire had engulfed the grandstand. There were no extinguishers nearby and no easy way to exit the grandstand in the event of an emergency. Initially it appeared that everyone was able to escape the danger by jumping onto the pitch, but 56 people died and 265 others were injured. Most of the fatalities were fans under 20 years old or over 70. One victim was Sam Firth, the club's 86-year-old former chairman. Many fans perished near locked gates or in the washrooms under the stands. Wooden grandstands were outlawed at stadiums in the UK following the tragedy. There were many heroic actions during the fire. Some 50 fans later received commendations for their rescue efforts.

Shirleys World - Failed TV Show Steve asked me to re-post this clip after it was lost when the website's server was changed. "Another example of an unsuccessful TV series featuring a major film star" is how Total Television described Shirley's World, a 30-minute dramedy that ran on ABC from September 15, 1971 to January 5, 1972. Shirley MacLaine played Shirley Logan, a globe-trotting photo-journalist employed by World Illustrated magazine. John Gregson played her editor. The show was extremely expensive to produce because it was actually filmed in exotic locales. Some critics have commented that the travel budget could have been more wisely spent on better scripts. It was produced in England by ITV and carried on ABC in the United States. Further complicating matters was MacLaine's dislike for producer Sheldon Leonard. Here's the opening montage.
