Nikki is an American sitcom that aired on The WB from October 9, 2000 to January 27, 2002. Nikki was a starring vehicle for Nikki Cox, who had previously starred in another WB sitcom, Unhappily Ever After, which ran for five seasons. Looking to capitalize on Cox's popularity, Bruce Helford created a sitcom that featured Cox as the title character.


Cox portrays Nikki White, a Las Vegas showgirl living in Las Vegas with her husband Dwight White (Nick von Esmarch), a professional wrestler. The couple were portrayed as a working class couple attempting to follow their passions while finding fame and fortune in Las Vegas.

One of the show's central themes was of Dwight's mother constantly being angry with Nikki for "luring" her son into a marriage and away from a safe, secure job with a future. She believed her son was destined for better things, and settled for a career as a wrestler instead of pursuing a career as a tax attorney.

A total of 41 episodes were ordered, produced and filmed, but due to low ratings, Nikki was canceled in January of 2002. Only 35 episodes were aired, the last being "She Was a Job-Jumper", on January 27, 2002.
