* DeaderThanDisco: Unlike most {{Sitcom}}s of its era, ''Murphy Brown'' is rarely seen in syndication due to the now-dated political references (there's now an entire generation of TV watchers who have no clue who Lesley Stahl and Dan Quayle are.) Season 1 was released on DVD in 2005 but sold so poorly that no further releases are planned. It now may be best known for the still popular ''Seinfeld'' having done an episode where Elaine tries to write an episode script that culminates in Kramer getting a guest spot on the show. Funnily enough, on the DVD features Jerry Seinfeld recalls the experience of visiting the show to film this as "So this is what a real TV show is like!"

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: The entire Murphy vs. UsefulNotes/DanQuayle saga really has to be seen to be believed.
** Irony: Ten years after the controversy, Candace Bergen admitted that Dan Quayle had a point. http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,319786,00.html
** Even though, if Quayle hadn't mentioned the show, no one would likely have known Quayle had even ''given'' the speech except for the people who were there to hear it.
** The first episode is a strong character introduction: Murphy comes back from rehab revitalized and ready to go, but doubts herself interviewing someone having an affair with a public figure...until she sees that someone coming into her studio [[SmallNameBigEgo with an entourage and legal team]], after which she unleashes full force. Sitting at home later, she's quietly satisfied with herself.



* JerkSue: Averted. The way Murphy sticks it to ThePowersThatBe is played sympathetically, [[{{JerkAss}} the way she treats her friends decidedly is not.]]

* ValuesDissonance: Given how far the news media has fallen in the last two decades, the portrayal of it here as a proud, noble organization may seem strange to modern viewers.
