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.'

Critic Reviews for Murphy Brown: Season 10

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (6)

There was a reason the series received many Emmy and Golden Globe nominations and wins: it worked and it was funny.

September 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Murphy Brown reframed the conversation, dramatizing the aspirations of so many American women trying to reconcile the desire to have both a career and children.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

While Mary Tyler Moore paved the way for the comedic portrayal of a single working woman in primetime, Bergen's alter-ego broke new ground with her reputation as a lippy, 40-something feminist who didn't suffer fools.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

In a moment when TV is overflowing with girls, Murphy Brown is unmistakably a woman.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Despite the imbalance between stale comedy and daring drama, the series can still be self-mockingly funny and close to important social issues.

January 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The surprise is that the half-hour is more touching than wacky, continuing to prove that this series hasn't stuck around too long at the dance after all.
