Blah, blah, blah. I saw Jay Leno on Melrose Ave., doing one of his "Jaywalking" bits. But there's more important things to discuss!
So, I haven't watched an episode of Murphy Brown in 11 years, right?
To be sure, I watched the series religiously during its' hey-day - far more than any young pre-teen boy actually should. While most guys in the fifth grade were watching professional football games, I spent my Monday evenings with a D.C. career gal.
I also read a lot of "Cathy." Lots and lots of "Cathy."
Still, I haven't watched Murphy Brown in over a decade.
So can someone please explain to me why - no less than an hour ago - I sat and watched the last episode of Murphy Brown on Nick at Nite... and cried my eyes out?
My guess? It was the absence of Miles Silverberg. That old, nebbish Miles Silverberg. We will miss you, dear friend.
