[show]For its second season CBS moved the show to Tuesday nights at 8:00 EST., opposite NBC's top ten hit The A-Team, and launched a marketing campaign featuring illustrations by Sanford Kossin of Max Klinger in a nurse's uniform, shaving off Mr. T's signature Mohawk, theorizing that "AfterMASH" would take a large portion of "The A-Team"'s audience. In fact, the exact opposite occurred, as "AfterMASH"'s ratings plummeted to near the bottom of the television rankings and the show was canceled nine episodes into its second season, while "The A-Team" continued until 1987, with 97 episodes.
- The series was top-rated during its first season, but was canceled midway through its second season when ratings declined sharply.
- A series starring Gary Burghoff as Radar was proposed as a spin-off. The pilot episode, W*A*L*T*E*R (1984) (TV), aired only once, on July 17, 1984.
