The Murphy Brown gang is celebrating their 25 th anniversary. Stars of the hit CBS sitcom about a TV newsmagazine staff reunited this month, as reruns from its 10-year run began airing on Encore Classic.

Murphy, played by five-time Emmy winner Candice Bergen, was a strong-willed 40-year-old hotshot who, in the series premiere, returned from a month-long stint at the Betty Ford Center after giving up drinking and smoking. It was a rarity in prime time of 1988, when family-focused The Cosby Show and Roseanne led the ratings and CBS was in the doldrums.
