FOX’s Nanny 911 debuts tonight.
FOX kicks out another household-invasion reality show tonight with Nanny 911, which debuts at 9 p.m. ET. The series features out-of-control households with shrieking children that will be by a British nanny. Some critics are receiving the show really well: “It’s not just exploitative. It’s repulsive,” says the New York Daily News. But it’s not all bad: Although the series features “what appear to be the worst children and the stupidest parents on the planet,” it’s “a hoot and a half,” the New York Post says.
