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 Frank and Corky -- are often at one another's throats, even though they care about one another. The comedy series tackles some serious topics, including Murphy being a single mother and being treated for breast cancer. As 24-hour cable news, social media and an increasingly chaotic and divided political climate change the journalistic landscape, Murphy and her team rise to the challenge, working to draw the line between good television and honest reporting.

Premiere:
