The reboot of the 1990’s sitcom Murphy Brown has been explicitly anti-Trump from the beginning. They thought they were going to ride the resistance to big ratings but things haven’t worked out as planned. The series is being cancelled after just one season.
Report: Anti-Trump ‘Murphy Brown’ Reboot Cancelled After One Season
CBS is cutting bait with its re-booted, President Trump-bashing sitcom, Murphy Brown, announcing it will not renew the show after its first 13 episodes, according to reports.
The Candice Bergan-fronted comedy came back with much fanfare as a full-throated attack on President Donald Trump, but lackluster ratings dogged the show from its very first episode.
CBS claims that Murphy Brown was “always” going to be a “closed-ended order of 13 episodes,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. But the show has had disappointing ratings from its debut at the end of September.
Whereas other more successful sitcoms are earning over seven million viewers, Murphy Brown has underperformed with only 6.2 million viewers and a mere .9 in the key 18-49 viewer demographic.
