The Nanny Coming to COZI TV in January; GSN Adds Chris Harrison Episodes of Millionaire

The Nanny

Fran Drescher's acclaimed sitcom The Nanny has a new television home. Kicking off with a special broadcast marathon on January 1, COZI TV viewers can plan to raise a glass and ring in the New Year with Maxwell Sheffield, Fran Fine and all of their favorite characters. The New Year's Day marathon featuring 22 fan-favorite episodes will air on January 1 beginning at 9:00 AM and ending at 8:00 PM (check local listings). During The Nanny marathon COZI TV will showcase original health and wellness vignettes featuring Fran Drescher and her non-profit organization, Cancer Schmancer. The actress will provide entertaining advice on how viewers can detox their bodies and homes. The series joins Frasier and Will & Grace as part of COZI TV's new comedy line-up. The show will move into regular weekday programming the following day with episodes airing at 10:00 AM, 7:00 PM and 12:00 AM (check local listings).

The Nanny follows Fran Fine, played by Drescher, a cosmetic saleswoman who becomes the nanny to the three children of a wealthy English widower, Maxwell Sheffield (Charles Shaughnessy), after being fired and dumped by her boyfriend. Hilarity and plenty of heartwarming moments ensue, as Fran adjusts to caring for Maxwell and his children. Fan-favorite episodes in the New Year's Day marathon include The Nanny (9:00 AM), the series pilot where Fran gets a job with the Sheffield family, and I Don't Remember Mama (7:30 PM), the season one finale where Fran convinces Maxwell and the children to celebrate Mothers’ Day by taking Grace to a mother-daughter beauty pageant.
