Tv Season Info

Diane English's hit sitcom about the brassy star reporter for a TV newsmagazine and her coworkers. Based in Washington, D.C., Murphy is mouthy, driven, assured and frequently politically incorrect. She also has a real problem holding on to secretaries (going through 93 of them during the Emmy-winning show's 10-season run). In 1992, Murph ran into criticism from Dan Quayle (and scored loads of free publicity) when the vice president slammed the working single mom's `alternative lifestyle.'

For the time being, Murphy Brown is one of those special television concoctions that somehow seem to make a half-hour flit by in 10 minutes. The series usually leaves you wanting more. And in the world of entertainment, there's no compliment more coveted.

Candice Bergen and company have resoundingly defeated the sophomore jinx: The second season of Murphy Brown was even better than the first, expanding the parameters of its characters' behavior and providing lots of belly laughs.
