  1. Wow, this is like the typical RFS. I don’t mean that in a bad way. Just the opposite.

    I remember watching the MASH film (and I watched the entire TV series) and I felt like the film was way below watchable level. Perhaps a 4/10.

    The TV series, despite it’s very needless liberal stance at times, I’d give a 7/10. CBS in the 1970s was one liberal show after the other. Although they were pretty much all quality entertainment, including the most liberal show of the bunch, Lou Grant. Although one could make a case for Maude being the most liberal of the CBS line-up. And I thought Maude was a HORRIBLE show.

  2. The other networks during this time had a liberal show here or there, but everything in the CBS line-up was just out there – aside from The Waltons and Carol Burnett; even Gunsmoke was falling off the rails at this time.

    Compare the other shows from the other networks and you can see that Norman Lear really had a grip on CBS.
