Getting co-workers Christmas gifts is causing unhappiness so Murphy suggests they donate to charity instead. But after Murphy secretly buys presents anyway, the rest become frantic trying to purchase...
Murphy Brown is a very selfish, stubborn, extremely hot-tempered but also talented, resourceful, clever and caring middle-aged reporter who works for FYI News Network and at the same time tries to raise her child as an unmarried, working woman. Her friends and co-workers, Corky, Jim, Frank and Miles, try to balance between her outbursts of anger and her family, personality or even financial crises. It's a difficult life for Murphy but she's got the guts to live it...Written by

In the final episode of season four, Murphy Brown gave birth to her child, Avery. Around that time Vice President Dan Quayle, during a televised debate, criticized the show for introducing the theme of an unmarried woman having a child and thereby promoting the idea of single motherhood and the decay of family values, a hot issue during that year's election campaigning. The producers and writers retaliated in the 60-minute season premiere which aired 21 September 1992. The clip from the debate was featured prominently in the episode (entitled "You Say Potatoe, I Say Potato") and the majority of the writing made fun of VP Quayle's remarks (To his credit, Vice President Quayle later sent the fictional baby Avery a very real plush toy elephant.)

I use to enjoy this show many years ago, it was witty and entertaining. I tuned in tonight expecting the same thing but with a new twist, I was greatly disappointed. It went from a fun show to a show embracing the turmoil of politics and these days that negativity is everywhere we look, it is nice to have an escape from it. So I think I'll pass on this. CBS you struck out on this one.
