    The sitcom doesn't get any better than this. ... Over the last year... 'Murphy Brown' has evolved from a clearly promising idea... into a landmark series.

    A series that started out merely good and has now become, like NBC's "Cheers," a comedy essential, a good reason to stay home and laugh. [18 Sep 1989]

    The second season of Murphy Brown was even better than the first, expanding the parameters of its characters' behavior and providing lots of belly laughs.

    Murphy Brown: Season 2 is a horrible show, I can't stand the acting and the story is pretty damn bad.
    In all honesty I think the only reason
    it has such a high critic review average is because it's owned by CBS. Full Review »
