Amid a divided nation, chaotic national discourse and rampant attacks on the press, Murphy decides to return to the airwaves with her biting take on current events on the CNC cable network's morning news program, "Murphy in the Morning," for which she recruits her "FYI" team: lifestyle reporter Corky Sherwood, investigative journalist Frank Fontana, and her former wunderkind news producer Miles Silverberg. Joining them is social media director Pat Patel, who is tasked with bringing Murphy and the team into the 21st century. Murphy's millennial son, Avery, shares his mother's competitive spirit and quick wit and is following in her journalistic footsteps with his own new show as the liberal voice on the competing, conservative-leaning Wolf Network. The team still lets off steam at Phil's Bar, now run by his sister, Phyllis.
After decades of being banned, Murphy and the team devise an elaborate ruse to sneak her into a White House press briefing. Also, Phyllis hires an enthusiastic college "Dreamer," Miguel to help out at the bar.
Murphy and the team weigh the pros and cons of accepting the offer to have the first interview with a headline-grabbing former White House senior advisor who wants to promote his divisive book and agenda on "Murphy in the Morning." Also, Avery moderates a lively political discussion on his show with locals in Buffalo, N.Y.
The "Murphy in the Morning" team gears up for their live all-day coverage of the mid-term elections, competing against Avery, who is reporting with John Haggerty, the Wolf Network’s conservative superstar. Also, Pat is horrified when Miles forces him to wear a conservative suit after assigning him to analyze numbers and trends on-air throughout the day.
The "Murphy in the Morning" team, Avery and Phyllis join Jim Dial at an eventful lifetime achievement award gala in his honor, hosted by Katie Couric and attended by Murphy's worst-ever secretary who has a surprising new connection to Murphy. Also, Murphy discovers a kindred spirit in Judge Nate Campbell another gala attendee.
During Corky's live "National Adopt a Pet Day" segment, she guilts Murphy into adopting a dog. Also, Avery's show is moved to the Wolf Network's plum 10:00 PM timeslot, and Phyllis and Miguel get a surprise visit from Fred Noonan an intimidating health inspector.
A disillusioned Avery seeks career inspiration from his extended family at "Murphy in the Morning," as the team tries to salvage a major story that hinges on a source in the Middle East who has gone silent.
