The cast and creator of "
Murphy Brown" -- Diane English, Candice Bergen, Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, Charles Kimbrough, and Grant Shaud -- were honored with the Impact Award at the 10th Annual TV Land Awards at the Lexington Avenue Armory on April 14, 2012 in New York City. The honor is presented to a show that offered both entertainment and enlightenment, with comedy that reflected reality.
The boundaries-pushing sitcom, which aired from 1988 to 1998 on CBS, starred Bergen as the show's title character Murphy Brown, a reporter for a successful primetime news show called "FYI." The series shined a light on its characters' professional careers and personal lives and tackled controversial subjects like single motherhood. Memorable episodes of "Murphy Brown" included moments with guests stars and fellow TV Land Awards honorees and presenters Aretha Franklin and Katie Couric.
