SALT LAKE CITY - McLean Stevenson had been on the road for days, hyping his new show "America." His suits were rumpled, he was tired and irritable. It was only 10:30 a.m., but be had been speaking to groups of journalists and potential advertisers for several hours.
Finally, the man who gained fame in the role of Lt. Col. Henry Blake on “M*A*S*H” was taking a break, eating breakfast and making small talk with KSL-TV newscasters Shelley Thomas and Dick Nourse.
The laughter and chatter came to a sudden halt when his publicist appeared at the table, reminding him it was time for another interview.
