The fictional sitcom Murphy Brown was popular with viewers from all walks of life including real-life counterparts Walter Cronkite and Connie Chung. Here is Murphy's story.

Murphy Brown

Would Murphy Brown be as controversial today? What present show might compare?

I used to love this show. Yeah, not sure she would be controversial at ALL today, but who knows, I'm still surprised it was controversial back then! Not sure what show might compare now... Weeds?

For me, this can be classified as one of the top5 best sitcoms ever made! A smart, fresh and with show that you’ll surely get hooked on! Candice Bergen really deserves the Emmy’s because she really portrayed her role as Murphy Brown herself. She’s really great and of course with the help of the cast, Faith Ford, Charles Kimbrough and Joe Ragalbulto, this show wouldn't be a smash without their help the good story line as well! The script took into deliberation real current dealings and brought attention to real life matters, which made us entertained - laugh and cry sometimes. Too bad the series got cancelled after it’s decade of reaching the top rates in primetime viewing in television. I want to relive the moment and bought a DVD boxset at yourdvdcorner . com. I’m so thankful and contented now that I can replay these discs how many times I want with the complete episodes from the entire 10 seasons!!! Murphy Brown will be forever treasured by every fans of this TV show like me! I doubt they can make a good sitcom as good as this one!
