LOS ANGELES -- An audience estimated at 70 million viewers tuned into the one-hour season opener of CBS' "Murphy Brown" in which the fictional anchorwoman finally got a chance to avenge herself after criticism from Vice President Dan Quayle.

Monday's premiere had a 29.3 rating (a ratings point equals 931,000 homes with televisions) and a 41 share of the audience, making it the highest-rated series episode on any network since a January 1989 episode of NBC's "The Cosby Show."
