The Days and Darts of Murphy Brown

After 10 seasons, Murphy Brown, the award-winning comedy series starring Candice Bergen, will have its final broadcast on Monday, May 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). Guest starring in the special one-hour series finale are Julia Roberts, Bette Midler, George Clooney, Mike Wallace, Alan King, Robert Pastorelli, Pat Corley and Frances Bergen (Candice Bergen's real-life mom).

Each week during these past 10 seasons, Murphy has shared her office with, among other things, her infamous dartboard. You could safely assume that whatever slogan or object appeared on the dartboard absolutely infuriated the brash Murphy Brown. Some of the more amusing -- and timely -- slogans and objects that became Murphy's target:

"Have a Nice Day"
"Ramp Closed"
"Wait Here for Next Teller"
"I (heart) Orrin Hatch" bumper sticker
"Tow Away, Temporary No Parking 6 AM - 6 PM"
