In the Murphy Brown episode “Three Shirts to the Wind”, Murphy (Candice Bergen) and the team weigh the pros and cons of accepting the offer to have the first interview with Ed Shannon, a fearmongering former White House senior advisor who wants to promote his divisive book. It would certainly boost the rating to Murphy’s new show, “Murphy in the Morning,” but can she live with herself if she helps him peddling more books? That’s Murphy’s difficult dilemma.
Author and former White House senior advisor Ed Shannon is portrayed by actor David Costabile. He’s known for his roles on Billions (Wags, see photo below), Suits (Daniel Hardman), Dig (Tad Billingham), Breaking Bad (Gale Boetticher), Damages (Det. Rick Messer), Flight of the Conchords (Doug), The Wire (Managing Editor Thomas Klebanow), and in the 2012 Steven Spielberg film Lincoln as James Ashley, among others. Murphy Brown airs Thursdays at 9:30 pm on CBS, right after Mom and right before S.W.A.T.
