Default Julie Anne Haddock mentioned on "Murphy Brown"!

There's an Encore cable station that airs episodes of Murphy Brown and Night Court back-to-back every weeknight, unedited and commercial-free (it's like having DVDs broadcast into your home!), and I was stunned last night when JAH was mentioned on Murphy Brown!

It was a 1992 episode entitled "Winners Take All", and the FYI news team (i.e. Murphy, et al) go to the Museum of Broadcast Arts to receive an award. When they're back in their green room before the ceremony starts and they'll go on stage, the emcee of the event (a guy with the museum) is talking with them, and he goes into a spiel of how much loves TV, and FYI.

And he says to FYI executive producer Miles that he still remembers the first time he saw FYI in 1977,

"You premiered right after the very short-lived and vastly-underrated Mulligan's Stew, which starred Lawrence Pressman as Michael, Elinor Donahue as his wife Jane, and Julie Anne Haddock as---" and here he pauses as he waits for Miles to finish the thought, but Miles just stares at him blankly, so the guy excitedly finishes: "Melinda!"

And what's great is these are not my emphases, he was actually so excited saying Julie Anne's and her character's names! I couldn't believe it! I had recorded it so I had to rewind and catch it again, lol.

Yeah, he got so excited saying "and Julie Anne Haddock as---" and throws his hands up in the air at "Melinda!" And it got a good laugh too, lol.

I immediately thought of you and this board!

Well, it's not on YouTube, but it is here. I don't know if you have to have a membership or pay anything to see it.

It's a really good episode in itself. The FYI team is honored for their professionalism and teamwork, but in-fighting disrupts the warm fuzziness of the honor, lol.

Nice! I had to figure out how to avoid all the ads and pop-unders, but I did get the video to play. Funny episode, and the JAH reference is cool!

Oh good, ya got to see it.

I know, it's so unexpected (unless someone told you, like me, lol), and so cool! lol I wonder if JAH ever saw that and did a little gasp at the mention of herself? lol

And all the FYI fighting is great! Especially Corky going on a rampage!
