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>

Trivia

Candice Bergen and the set of Murphy Brown made a guest appearance on Seinfeld (1989), in episode 3.23, Seinfeld: The Keys (1992) (where Kramer (Michael Richards) is hired, as an actor, to play Murphy's secretary), Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David returned the favour by appearing as themselves on "Murphy Brown" creator Diane English's other sitcom, Love & War (1992), where they receive a Seinfeld script in which Kramer sleeps with Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). This also echoes Elaine's writing a "Murphy Brown" script in that episode. See more »

Quotes

Kay: I've talked to the network and they agree that given the quality of your work lately, they have no choice but to give all of you five days at a beautiful Mexican resort totally at their expense. See what I did there? You thought I was going to do something evil but I went a different way!

THE BEST!!!!
6 May 2000 | by anivaldSee all my reviews

Murphy Brown is the best sitcom ever! It's very smart, funny, and Candice, what can I say, she was so brilliant and deserved all the Emmys she won and even more, I'm her biggest fan. But let's not forget the rest of the cast, they did a great job too. Too bad the series ended. I miss you guys!
