In the episode, she arrived at Murphy's news show, Murphy in the Morning, to interview for the "secretarial position", making several tongue-in-cheek references to some of Clinton's most high-profile moments during her 2016 presidential campaign.

The heavily buzzed premiere (which included a Hillary Clinton cameo) was watched by 7.4 million viewers with only a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 - the lowest of the network's two-hour comedy block, falling 15 percent from its Mom lead in.

"Absolutely", Clinton replied. "For four years, I was the secretary... of a very large organization".

Murphy asks if she has the requisite computer and email skills.

The train travels at a speed of 300km/h and reduces the travel time between Makkah and Madinah to just about two hours. Officials hope it will transport 60 million passengers annually and ease traffic congestion for Muslim pilgrims.

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

"I know, Hillary Clinton". She will also appear in the fifth season premiere of "Madam Secretary". Clinton left Murphy with a business card that said her email address was "Hilary at you could have had me dot com".

Even before a single word of the script for CBS's "Murphy Brown" revival was written, Diane English and Candice Bergen had an idea for a big-name guest star. The show, including its lead star and its creator, Diane English, famously sparred with Dan Quayle in 1992 after the then-vice president lamented the show's choice to have the unmarried Murphy give birth to a baby boy, whom she meant to raise on her own. "And so we plan to do the same thing again". Some include Aretha Franklin and news reporter Connie Chung. If anything, Clinton is a little too qualified for the role. Now the question is whether the show will reach across the aisle for future ones.
