Cozi Celebrates The Royal Wedding with The Nanny; The Gong Show Lines Up Celebs for Season 2

The Nanny

In tribute to the long-awaited royal wedding, COZI TV will air our own "long-awaited" wedding of an American Bride and British aristocrat: the two-part wedding special of The Nanny on Friday, May 18 at 7PM ET (check local listings). COZI TV viewers are invited to raise a glass in celebration of the wedding special starring Fran Drescher and The Right Honorable Baron Charles Shaughnessy. COZI TV will air The Nanny two-part wedding special on Friday, May 18 at 7PM (check local listings), the evening before the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The episodes feature the comical journey to the altar between Fran Fine and Maxwell Sheffield.

The Nanny series 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, romantic entanglements and plenty of heartwarming moments ensue, as Fran adjusts to caring for Maxwell and his children.


The Gong Show

The Gong Show, which makes its triumphant return to television on Thursday, June 21 at 8:00pm EDT, on ABC and stars celebrated film and television actor/comedian Mike Myers as the show's host - British comedic legend Tommy Maitland - has announced the names of some of the revolving panel of judges set to praise, critique and gong contestants in one of TV's all-time great variety shows.

Returning to helm the gong from last season are executive producer Will Arnett, Dana Carvey, Ken Jeong and Rob Riggle; and making their judging debut are Alyson Hannigan, Jimmy Kimmel, Brad Paisley and Jason Sudeikis - with more to come! Performers, such as contortionists, singers, magicians, dancers, jugglers and dancing dogs, are just some of the dozens and dozens of acts that are set to impress our panel of three celebrity judges. If any of the judges deem an act to be less than worthy of a score, they can pick up a mallet and hit the giant gong that is hanging behind them and end the underwhelming performance. But if the judges are happy with the act, they will let it play out until the end and present their scores numerically from 0 through 10. It's not uncommon for fights to break out amongst the judges when one of them wants to gong an act, while the others want to let them play on. At the end of each show, the winning performer or act with the highest judges' scores will receive a fabulous The Gong Show trophy and a check.
