The infamous investigative journalist and news anchor is back on CBS twenty years later with a revived eleventh season of the sitcom after her initial ten seasons which ran from November 1988 to May 1998.

With big broadcast networks struggling to compete with binge-worthy streaming platform offerings, they've turned to established franchises from their vaults to bring in the viewers and it's worked with the likes of fan-favourite sitcoms Will & Grace and Roseanne (even if the latter was a ticking time bomb and PR nightmare waiting to explode).
