The show should also take a breather, because it spends much time shouting what we already shout ourselves, at the expense of more skillful comedy.
October 3, 2018
Of course, it's great to see the wonderful Candice Bergen on air again-even if seeing her immediately brings visions of Sprint commercials into your head-but the premiere episode felt stale.
October 5, 2018
The writing from series creator Diane English has some mustard, but too much of it relies on a well-worn comedic formula that goes for easy laughs.

Led by the insanity out there, Murphy's making as much noise as the president she opposes, and shedding just as little light.
September 27, 2018
Modernizing proves difficult for the series, which is often downright preachy about politics. While the show was a progressive touchstone that mixed real-world politics with fiction, there's something naive about its approach to 2018 politics.

September 25, 2018
Murphy Brown is so angrily focused on 2018 politics that its comedy often gets stuck back in the '80s.

Watching the first episode was like being struck repeatedly on the forehead with a hammer of righteousness.

Just as Murphy strives to place her journalistic integrity above the sensationalist cravings of cable news, Murphy Brown would be well served to place the connection between its characters above its mission to make the ugliness of our reality funny.

The new Murphy Brown feels detached from any reality other than an all-caps email forward about how Trump is [bad/disgusting/unacceptable/take your pick].

Murphy Brown feels like visiting with a friend we haven't seen in a while. Once the novelty fades, it reminds us how many years have passed and that we might not want to spend that much time together any more.
September 26, 2018
Murphy Brown wants to make clear that Murphy's still got it. But the show itself is kludgy, combining dated sitcom rhythms with sermonizing.
September 25, 2018
Murphy's not wrong on much... But her (and the show's) positions are laid out with such a smug, leaden hand that it seems designed to alienate the people who agree with it at least as much as the Trumpists who won't be watching in the first place.

It's wonderful to see old friends after they've been away for years, but sometimes these get-togethers illustrate that you can't rekindle the fire of friendship in quite the same way. That's the vibe one gets from CBS's revival of Murphy Brown.

There is some pleasure in reconnecting with the old gang, but that eventually wears off. This revival feels so last century.

Murphy ultimately has it both ways regarding Shannon-rhymes-with-Bannon, but it's not clear yet whether the revived Murphy Brown is going to be so lucky, striving as it does to be both mainstream comedy and liberal agitprop.
October 8, 2018
Somehow, Murphy Brown manages to say provocative things without actually being provocative. That might be enough to make it a hit TV show, but in this era, it's not enough to make it an important one.
September 26, 2018
There's a whiff of The Newsroom about the rebooted Murphy Brown, not so much in the show's sitcom bones-which are very, very creaky-but in the disconnect between all its highfalutin thinking about what the media can and should do.
September 27, 2018
In short, Murphy Brown was a lovably fractured mess and nobody's poster child for anything. Turning her into a geriatric Rachel Maddow-style Stalinist (Bergen is 72, around the same age as her character) does lethal damage to the heart of the show.
September 28, 2018
So far this just isn't a very good show, with both Roseanne and Will & Grace making stronger and funnier first impressions in this particular three-way reboot universe.

The early episodes don't suggest this humility. They don't seem to have learned that the world has not changed in the ways that Murphy most dislikes only because of the absence of journalists like her, but also because of the limitations.
