This is one of those rare instances when you have strong writers, a great lead, fine production, and just a lackluster premise.

Married with Children: The Parent of Today's Family Sitcom
While its peers in the family sitcom arena offered a limitless supply of loving families, happy homes, and poignant life lessons, Married With Children slapped America in the face with middle-class mediocrity and resentment. And television hasn't been the same since.

When Fran Fine entered the Sheffield's residence in Park Avenue selling cosmetics, little did she know about how much she was going to change their lives. The Jewish girl from Queens got a job as the nanny for Maxwell Sheffield's (a Broadway producer) three kids: Maggie, Brighton and Gracie. But the Sheffields got more than just a nanny: they got Sylvia, Fran's compulsive eater, nosy mother; Val, Fran's best friend with a low I.Q.; and Yetta, Fran's grandmother. She gave joy to the house that had been blue ever since Mrs. Sheffield passed away, and quickly became friends with Niles, the butler, who is always aware of everything that is going on in the house. The attraction between Fran and Mr. Sheffield became evident as the years went by, for C.C.'s (Maxwell's business partner, who always had a crush on him) torture. Many people consider The Nanny as being the 90's version of "I Love Lucy". The show premiered in November, 1993 as a late addition to CBS's Wednesday fall lineup. The show quickly became a hit, moving to Monday nights on its second season and remaining there until its third. Then CBS moved it back to Wednesday nights, trying to improve the ratings for that night - a move that made CBS hold the time slot for the first time in 25 years, since Sonny & Cher! But ratings started to fall, and during the 5th season the producers decided to end its run, giving it one last season. The 6th season ran until March, when the show went into a hiatus. The series finale was shown before the remaining episodes, which were shown later during June. During its 6-year run, The Nanny was nominated for 11 Emmys, winning only one in 1995 for best costume designs. Fran Drescher was nominated twice for best actress: in 1996 and 1997. Renée Taylor also got a nomination as best supporting actress in 1996. A Fran Drescher doll was released during the show's run, featuring some of the outfits that were one of the show's trademarks.

Where was she to go? She was out on her fanny... So over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffield's door She was there to sell make-up, but father saw more She had style! She had flair! She was there That's how she became the Nanny! Who would have guessed that the girl we've described Was just exactly what the doctor prescribed? Now the father finds her beguiling (watch out C.C.!) And the kids are actually smiling (such joie de vivre!) She's the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan... The flashy girl from Flushing, the Nanny named Fran!"
