Sunny, funny Faith Ford cut her prime-time teeth with a 10-year run as Murphy Brown's Corky Sherwood, a role for which she earned five Emmy nods. For the last two years she's been playing homemaker Hope to Kelly Ripa's flighty Faith in ABC's Hope & Faith. (Yes, it's confusing, and it always will be.) As the show readied for its hourlong third season premiere (airing tonight at 9 pm/ET), TVGuide.com spent a few minutes with the Louisiana native to discuss the Ted McGinley curse, today's crazy teens and the scene she never wants to do again.

Question: Can you tell me when Miles and Corky got married on Murphy Brown and what the story was around that? I just saw an episode on Nick at Nite where they planned to renew their vows, and I don't ever remember them marrying on the show. Thanks much.
Answer: Miles and Corky got married in the Season 8 opener, "Altered States." In the episode, which first aired Sept. 18, 1995, Murphy was already facing the fact that her own wedding wasn't going to happen when Miles (Grant Shaud) and Corky (Faith Ford) dropped the bomb that they'd eloped.
