Hillary Clinton was the surprise guest on the premiere of the “Murphy Brown” revival last night. The secret was really kept close to the vest. In the last few days, Hillary, according to my sources, had seen a lot of family and friends and told no one. Even Bill, who was with her, didn’t say a word. She applied to be Murphy’s secretary– there were legions of them on the old show. She was very good at sending herself up– she told Murphy she had a lot of experience with email.
The first three “Murphy” episodes didn’t get great reviews from the critics. I’m hopeful they improve as the series moves along. This morning we’ll see how the ratings were.
