M*A*S*H, a spin-off of a film by the same name, ran three times as long as the war it chronicled. It starred Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce and Wayne Rogers as Trapper John McIntyre. In the 4th season, Rogers left the show and was replaced by Mike Farrell as B. J. Hunnicutt. Another change was the addition of Harry Morgan as Colonel Sherman T. Potter, who replaced McLean Stevenson the same year. The final episode in 1983 was the most-watched in television history.
