The Nanny

Critics Consensus

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

Audience Reviews for The Nanny: Season 1

    I'd never heard of this series until my wife mentioned seeing it years ago and wanted to see it again, I only managed 3 episodes, I genuinely cannot understand the popularity this show had, it is almost entirely devoid of humour, only the butler & youngest daughter actually had any funny lines, Frans voice is unbelievably grating and if it weren't for the painfully obvious use of canned laughter, I'd have no idea which lines were supposed to be funny, some people say they can't believe it was cancelled after only 6 seasons, I say I can't believe it made it past 1

    My absolute favorite show! I love the Nanny so much and it brings me such comfort to watch it. I first started watching it as a child, and I have to say it gets even better as I get older. Fran Drescher is one of the best actresses and has perfect comedic timing in every scene.

    Comical, exciting and well-directed ... The Nanny takes humor to the top when Fran comes into the spotlight, with all the essence and charisma that leaves anyone aware. simply perfect
