Does "Happily Divorced" Agree With You?

That annoying voice is back. Fran Drescher may sound like nails on a chalkboard, but I have to give her credit, that woman has courage. She and ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson created the newest TVLand sitcom around their real life, him coming out of the closet after nearly two decades of marriage. Most women would be humiliated, but Fran, she writes the jokes. The former couple first worked together on "The Nanny".

John Michael Higgins plays Peter, Fran's ex-husband who's still living in the house as Fran takes on the dating world. She's accompanied by best friend Judi (Tichina Arnold) and her flower business employee Cesar. The cast is rounded out by the parental units played by Rita Moreno and Robert Walden.

D.W. Moffet guest stars in the pilot as Fran's first date post marriage. If I were him, I'd run in the other direction. Not only is she still living with her ex, she fed him food that could've killed him.

It's your classic multi camera, studio audience sitcom with exaggerated physicality and jokes. Not my usual bag, but I like the premise. We'll see, maybe I'll give it a try. Wanna take bets on how long before the voice is just too much to take?


Wednesdays at 10:30pm on TVLand
