The Nanny ran for six seasons on CBS from 1993 – 1999. The series took the concept established by its forbear Who’s The Boss and turned it on its ear, replacing Tony Danza’s character Tony with an equally strong female lead in Drescher’s nanny Fran Fine. Angela Bower (Judith Light) was replaced with Mr. Scheffield (Charles Shaugnessy). And Angela’s son Jonathan (Danny Pintauro) was replaced by Mr. Scheffield’s children Margaret (Nicholle Tom), Brighton (Benjamin Salisbury) and Grace (Madeline Zima). Daniel Davis and Lauren Lane co-starred in supporting roles as Mr. Scheffield’s butler Niles and staffer C.C. Babcock respectively.
