Murphy Brown turns 25 this week, but it's the TV show's fans who got the present.
The show, featuring Candice Bergen as a smart-alecky, fresh-out-of-rehab news anchor, premiered on Nov. 14, 1988, and to celebrate that milestone, it was just announced that the long-running comedy has finally entered syndication.
Murphy Brown starred Bergen, along with Faith Ford, Grant Shaud, Joe Regalbuto, Charles Kimbrough and Lily Tomlin, as reporters for a national show that covered politics, lifestyle pieces and hard-hitting news. Think The Newsroom but with a killer sense of humor. The half-hour comedy ran on CBS from 1988 to 1998.
