Storyline

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 Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

If you hate Trump you will love the 2018 return
28 September 2018 | by jsaus63304See all my reviews

What ever happened to new ideas? It is bad enough that producers are reviving old TV shows and movies, but did they have to dig up the old cast too? While the rest of the cast members seem to have aged rather normally, Candice Bergan came out from under the knife looking like Eva Gabor. Only her voice remains.

No original humor to be found. What we have are rehashed jokes about Trump's hair, skin color, tweeting etc. Then we drag out Hillary Clinton for a cameo with poor self deprecating jokes about tweeting and emails.

This show will survive no matter what the ratings as opposed to the shows with Tim Allen and Rosanne. Liberal politics will trump humor.
