Murphy Brown: Season 5 (1992-1993)





Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.


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.'

This was not a satisfying response to Quayle. It was more of an embarrassment, sinking not only to his level, but even lower.
