It Took Twenty-Seven Years to Beat M*A*S*H

On the last day in February, 1983, a reported 105.97 million people sat down in front of their television sets to be a part of history. The TV series that had become a phenomenon, M*A*S*H, was coming to a close after an amazing eleven season run on CBS. The finale broke almost every television record at the time, and has held the records for nearly twenty- seven years. It's rumored they even set the record for largest water use by the NY Sanitation/Public Works during the Commercials caused by so many people running to the restroom during the break. M*A*S*H was finally beat out for the total number of viewers this year by Super Bowl XLIV just twenty-six days before the anniversary of their achievement. Although the record for most viewers was finally beaten, M*A*S*H has yet to turn over the record Nielsen ratings for percentage of Americans watching. So what made M*A*S*H so great?

When I Snap My Fingers...

I suck at working. Focusing on what I need to accomplish and just doing the work is probably the hardest thing for me to do. I just spent an hour researching hypnosis preceded by an hour of reading about a creepy guy with a Peter Pan fetish someone posted on facebook. By the way, check the Peter Pan site out. If you thought Renaissance Fairs were really weird before...

Back on topic, the hypnosis research had a purpose, initially. The story I'm not working on this morning is a project I'm way over deadline on that is destroying me. Every time I start working on it, the plot becomes exponentially more complicated and if I stop to sleep at night I'll be too terrified to get started in the morning.

The story is about a detective who is investigating a murder that he has a connection to but doesn't tell his superior. He thinks he knows the girl who was killed, and was black out drunk when it happened. Eventually he even decides he's a possible suspect. From the beginning of the story he's stopped taking his medication, and as a result is becoming more and more bi-polar as the case progresses. He is getting help from a psychiatrist who is helping him piece together his memories from the night in question using hypnosis. I told you it was relevant.
