The Office had its series finale Thursday night. Series finales aren't the "events" they used to be, at least in terms of the number of people gathering around the TV to watch.   I can't believe it's been 30 years since the finale of M*A*S*H it literally came close to bringing me to tears saying goodbye to the 4077th.  And then there's the finale for "Seinfeld," "Friends," "E.R.," and others.


Here are the Top 5 Most Watched Series finales of all time, based on the number of viewers who tuned in to say goodbye:

1. M*A*S*H: February 29, 1983  − 105.9 million
