The Fran Drescher Show (also called The Fran Drescher Tawk Show) was an American talk show hosted by actress Fran Drescher.[1] The series premiered on November 26, 2010, in six cities on Fox owned stations: New York on WNYW, Los Angeles on KTTV, Philadelphia on WTXF, Phoenix on KSAZ, Minneapolis on KMSP and Orlando on WOFL.[2] The Fran Drescher Show was given a three-week trial run with the option of being nationally syndicated.[3] In its debut, the program placing a 0.8 rating/2 share in six metered markets.[4] With declining ratings throughout its run,[5] the show did not return.


Drescher described what she would bring to the program: "I'm thrilled to be able to bring The Fran Drescher Tawk Show to daytime TV, which fits me hand in glove," and added that "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."[6]
