1972: The sitcom "M*A*S*H" premieres on TV. The show, which follows a team of doctors and support staff stationed at the "4077th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital" in Uijeongbu, South Korea, during the Korean War, struggled in its first season, but found an audience the following year and would last 11 seasons, nearly eight years longer than the actual war.
