    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.

    Bribing and monopoly does not get more clear than this. Shame on you, CBS. Bedtime was hours ago and yet, here you are, jerking off in broad daylight, hoping that nobody notices.

    Rarely has a cast been so perfectly chosen and thoughtfully developed as the crew on "Murphy Brown." [14 May 1990]

    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]
