    Here Are 25 Tweets About "The Nanny" Because I've Spent The Weekend Binge-Watching It

    ~She's the lady in red when everybody else is wearing taaaaaaaaaaaan~

    Since I came out the womb, I've been watching The Nanny — it was, and remains, my mother's favorite show.

    CBS

    Niles felt like a member of our household, that's how often the family sat down and watched this show.

    HOWEVER, a girl can only watch reruns on Cozi TV — yes, commercials — for so long. I've been WAITING eons for The Nanny to stream...

    which of these 500 new streaming services is gonna have The Nanny?

    ...and, this weekend, my prayers were ANSWERED! You can now stream every single episode of The Nanny on HBO Max.

    Here are some of the funniest tweets from the biggest fans of Fran Drescher (present company excluded):

    She had style. She had flair. She was there. That's how she became THE NANNY.

    Roommate: “What’s The Nanny about?” Me: “It’s about a woman who was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, ‘til her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes-“ Roommate: “Oh okay-“ Me: “What was she do, where was she to go, she was out on her fanny...”

    On this day of The Nanny arriving on HBO Max, a reminder that at least one of these Helen Hunt Emmys belonged to Fran Drescher.

    for my next thesis, I’d like to analysis the queer-adjacent Jewish excellence that is Fran Drescher and her wardrobe on The Nanny (1993-1999)

    it only took 20 years but i finally realized that perhaps my mother doesn't share my enthusiasm for THE NANNY because my dad cheated on her with my curly-haired, loudmouth au pair

    25. Last but not least:

    We don’t give “The Nanny” enough credit for rhyming “Flushing, Queens” with “crushing scenes.”
