Fran Drescher lands daytime talk show

Fran-DrescherImage Credit: Jim Steinfeldt/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty ImagesThe Fran Drescher Show is happening. Long rumored to be making a foray into the chat format, Drescher will get a three-week run in six major markets beginning on Nov. 26. Debmar-Mercury and Fox Television Stations will co-produce the “preview,” which, if successful on Fox-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Minneapolis, and Orlando, would give birth to a national debut next fall. What can we expect? The one-hour talker will feature “Drescher’s witty commentary on captivating topics, current events, pop culture and interviews,” according to the announcement. It will also boast plenty of jokes about her famous voice and puns, if Drescher’s statement is any indication: “I’m thrilled to be able to bring The Fran Drescher Tawk Show to daytime TV, which fits me hand in glove. It will cover all of my passions, everything from pedicures to politics. America will have a chance to see the real Fran Drescher, beyond The Nanny. I’m the girl next door, a self-made woman who has been to hell and back a few times. [She’s a rape and cancer survivor.] I look forward to sharing my life lessons, having fun, learning Frantastic things with women in daytime and working with the Fox stations and Debmar-Mercury to bring this exciting new project to all of my fans.”

Are you in? In addition to her daily fashion choices, you have to at least want to see/hear the theme song. May we suggest a fun, animated ditty telling her life story (“…the gabber named Fran!”).

    I laughed all the way through “Enter Whining”. I think she’s hysterical. I’m not much of a talk show person, but I’d tune in to see what she does.
