How to Watch 'Murphy Brown' Premiere: Live Stream, Channel, Air Time and More Info

CBS will air the premiere of Murphy Brown on Thursday. The series, which originally ran for 10 season from 1988 to 1998, will bring the return of legendary news anchor Murphy, played by Candice Bergman, and her original team of journalists including lifestyle reporter Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford), investigative journalist Frankl Fontana (Joe Regalbuto) and news producer Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud).

A few new faces will appear on the updated series including Nik Dodani, who plays Murphy's savvy social media director Pat Patel, and Tyne Daly, who stars as Phyllis, the new owner of Phil's Bar and the original bartender's sister. Actor Jake McDorman will play the role of Avery Brown, an aspiring journalist who also happens to be Murphy's son.

The premiere episode won't just mark the return of the series but Murphy's re-entrance into the world of broadcast news. Along with navigating the resurgence of her show Murphy in the Morning in a modern day political climate, Murphy will be faced with all the other challenges of the 21st century, like keeping up with technology, the young and maintaining society's trust in the news.

"Back in the game after a brief retirement, and faced with a world of 24-hour cable, social media, 'fake news' and a vastly different political climate, Murphy is determined to draw the line between good television and honest reporting, proving that the world needs Murphy Brown now more than ever," the episode 1 synopsis reads.

Viewers can tune into the Murphy Brown premiere online on CBS' website using their cable provider information. The episode will also be available for streaming on CBS' app, CBS All Access. CBS is currently offering an on-demand live stream of original Murphy Brown episodes, so fans can refresh their memories with the older version of the series before the premiere.

The first of the 13-episode season is set to air at 9:30 p.m. ET. The premiere will run as a special extended episode, ending at 10:05 p.m. ET on Thursday, and then return to its normal 30-minute timeslot the following week.
