Even with a sideswipe of Charlie Rose that would have never shown up on a network show just a year ago, the revival of the Diane English-created series (returning more than two decades after its last season ended) has pretty much reduced itself to a one-note Don Quixote from what I’ve seen. With surprisingly tone-deaf digs at the likes of Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Steve Bannon misfires, it is a pursuit in which the Trump White House is the constantly charged windmill to the deafening exclusion of all else.
She played a former secretary looking for a secretarial job with Murphy Brown.
That’s how Hillary Clinton was written into Thursday’s premiere of Murphy Brown. Creator Diane English has been promising a big surprise for the first night of the sitcom’s revival, which follows Murphy as she launches her own morning talk show with pals Corky (Faith Ford) and Frank (Joe Regalbuto). Just like the old days when the sitcom aired in the ’90s, Murphy is still looking for the perfect secretary. So in walks a red pantsuit-wearing Clinton.
Hillary lost. Get over it.
