'Happily Divorced' puts Fran Drescher back on TV

There's likely no middle ground here. The following words will either strike joy or dread in your heart: Fran Drescher is returning to television.

Count me in the joy camp. (I maintain that 'The Nanny' was a solidly funny sitcom that was not only underrated during its heyday, but one that still holds up nearly 20 years since its 1993 premiere.)

Drescher's new TV Land sitcom, 'Happily Divorced,' is about a couple happily married for 18 years until the husband suddenly comes out as gay. The two divorce but remain good friends -- roommates even -- and hilarity ensues. This is where we can link back to 'The Nanny,' which Drescher made with her then-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, to whom she was married for 21 years. After their amicable divorce in 1999, Jacobson told Drescher that he was gay, and the two have remained close friends.
