Murphy Brown

Murphy Brown is the star reporter of ``FYI,'' a newsmagazine series. Murphy is sarcastic, ambitious, often self-involved and bossy -- but she is also dedicated and ethical. She and her co-workers -- including Jim, Frank and Corky -- are often at one another's throats, even though they care about one another. Eldin, Murphy's house painter and confident, never seems to finish his painting contract at Murphy's house (before leaving the show). The comedy series tackles some serious topics, including Murphy being a single mother and being treated for breast cancer.

Premiere:
