    Great opening sequence with a Murphy theme song. Murphy is at first appalled at having to host an actress. Great line by Murphy listing to Corky give advise to Julia "The blond leading the blond" . But Morgan shows a good news aptitude so Murphy begins warming up to her. Another great line by Murphy after Frank enters in a macho investigative reporter outfit to impress Morgan "Frank, the Temple of Doom is that way". By the end, Julia convinces Murphy to do a walk-on as a real life reporter. She is terrible. and in an ironic funny ending, Connie Chung admonishes Murphy, saying real-life reporters shouldn't embarrass themselves by appearing on a sitcommoreless
