BROOKE SHIELDS is among the guest stars dropping in on CBS’ ‘Murphy Brown’ revival. Bette Midler was on the original sitcom as Caprice, one of many difficult, short-tenured secretaries to Candice Bergen’s Murphy. CBS said the singer-actress is back as Caprice on the Nov. 8 episode, this time with a connection to Murphy that makes her even more unbearable.
Brooke Shields is on the Nov. 15 episode as a former beauty-pageant pal of series star Faith Ford’s Corky who emerges from a long coma.
The episode with Midler also features Katie Couric playing herself and former “Night Court” star John Larroquette as a judge.
