Fran is the stuff !! LOVE IT !!!!!Mar 08, 2012
I must say that this is one of the funniest shows ever aired. Fran Drescher is awesome As ALWAYS!! In this season, she brought "The Nanny" back with her. Guest Stars include Charles Shaughnessy (Mr. Sheffield) , and Renee' Taylor (The lovely Sylvia Fine.) This show will NEVER compare to "The Nanny" but any True Fran Fan will add this masterpeice to your collection.

She's Back!!!!!!!!Mar 08, 2012
By Molly F. Clemons
I have to say that this is up to snuff compared to The Nanny. Fran is wonderful as always but this cast will have you peeing your pants they are all so comical and just funny in nature. And for the reccord I find it astonishing how this is based on what really happend and that Fran and her ex are still really good friends. So in short you will not regret buying the First Season of Happily Divorced!!!!!!!

She's Baaaaack!May 26, 2012
By Kasey G
After the overnight success of "Hot In Cleveland" in 2010, TV Land tried to score another hit by putting a proven sitcom favorite into a new vehicle: in this case Fran Drescher. In the ultimate example of art imitating life, they take Fran's real-life experience of having her long-time husband come out as gay and turn it into sitcom fodder. Even though all the writers of "The Nanny" were drafted, it lacks the warmth and heart of Fran's previous series. Even the opening credits reflect this, whereas "The Nanny" featured a colorful montage of animated Fran getting kicked out "on her fanny" etc. here all we have are a couple of stick figures, which is all too telling. In today's sitcom world, where most shows only run 20 minutes if that, there's very little time for character development as all the dialogue is usually scripted to propel the plot. So "Happily Divorced" ends up being a series of jokes and sight gags. That's not to say it's bad--it has a lot of cute moments, but (like "Hot In Cleveland" IMO) it's still missing that certain something.
There are several fun references to "The Nanny" and both Renee Taylor and Charles Shaughnessy guest star (Shaughnessy's episode as a bisexual writer is perhaps the season's best). Lou Diamond Phillips ("La Bamba") shows up looking smoking hot and Jennifer Holliday ("Dreamgirls") has a fun cameo.
Fran is as appealing as ever and for a 54-year-old woman she looks AMAZING in this. Yes, she's gained weight since "The Nanny" but she looks REAL, not plastic or anorexic and botoxed like many of her contemporaries (Demi Moore eat your heart out). I actually think she looks better now with a voluptuous Marilyn Monroe figure than she did in the '90s. Fans of Fran will still find her as endearing and entertaining as ever, but for the sad state of current sitcoms, this is as good as it gets I suppose.

Fran DrescherMay 01, 2012
Fran is definitely NOT "The Nanny" in this show, but this isn't terrible either. Petey (John Michael Higgins) plays the gay ex- husband who lives in the garage still in the same place as Fran. This season was very good because she did, however, bring the cast of The Nanny back with her. It would be Nice if Shout! Factory would buy the rights to Seasons 4-6 from Sony of "The Nanny", and release them! We are getting old here!!!!!!!!!! But, buy Season one of HD. It's worth watching I think.

Oh my Gawd, I love this show!Apr 24, 2012
I was a big fan of the Nanny when it was on the air, but I would have to say that I like this show even better. The fact that it even has Ernie from the George Lopez show only makes it better. I can't wait to buy Season 2.
