Critics Consensus

Fran Drescher elevates The Nanny's formulaic writing with chutzpah, hairspray, and a one-of-a-kind comedic performance.

Critic Reviews for The Nanny Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

The writing in the show is only average... But Fran Drescher alone makes The Nanny worth a look for those who like their comedy with a dose of chutzpah.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Fran Fine's appeal overshadows all in a series that's a nice little nosh of a comedy if not exactly a banquet of laughs.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

But instead of being a mere reheating of the old format, The Nanny is fresh and markedly sassy, thanks to a spirited and altogether winning performance by Fran Drescher in the title role.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Shrewdly crude, The Nanny sure ain't no Friends rip-off, and that's something of a blessing.

Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Fran Fine is a character we still don't get to see enough of, even today in the Age of Golden Televisions: a likeable but flawed lady-protagonist.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

The plot of "The Nanny" is simple: "The Sound of Music" without music.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Playful banter and mild sexual innuendoes are the heart of the show's humor.

Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Drescher takes formula sitcom and turns it into something special. She's a hoot.

Sep 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Out of all the famous sitcoms from the '90s, The Nanny might just be the most underrated.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

The show was, regardless of how over-the-top it may have seemed (the nasal laugh that ended all nasal laughs, those hilarious under-the-breath insults from Niles), undeniably relatable.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

The writing is clever, and the lines and characters are actually funny - an unusual combination in many sitcoms these days.
