It was a gently self-mocking cameo, what with the ex-First Lady rocking her trademark red pantsuit and a flipping couldn't-resist quip about having "some experience with emails". She will also appear in the fifth season premiere of "Madam Secretary".

The original Murphy Brown ran for 10 seasons from 1988 to 1998 and featured cameos from a number of celebrities and public figures.

"Emails... I do have some experience with emails", Clinton joked. The former secretary of state claims that she is not Hillary Clinton but someone who looks like her and has a wealth of experience.

For most critics, it was the material that brought the show down, especially its very strong anti-Trump tone.

"I was very young", Bergen admits about her own date with the President.

"I wanted to do a show that didn't resort to name-calling", Murphy says.

Butler now prefers to be traded to the Miami Heat
The Miami Heat , who have been among the most aggressive teams pursuing a trade for Butler, find the price too high. The Clippers, Knicks, Nets, Cavaliers and Kings have also been reported to be interested in Butler.

She continued, "I remember that... he was wearing a burgundy suit, with a burgundy vest, and burgundy leather boots and was in a burgundy limousine".

Bergen, the daughter of a model and famous ventriloquist, attended Penn for two years before being forced to leave because she was failing an art and an opera class.

Bergen did some modelling after college before getting into acting, with her big break coming in the 1969 film "Carnal Knowledge" alongside Jack Nicholson.

Back in May, she told People that the date "was really a dud".

Once a indelible part of the TV landscape and the cultural conversation at large, Murphy Brown is now a big fish in a much, much bigger pond.
