TV show description:
This sitcom centers around New York City friends, gay lawyer Will Truman (Eric McCormack) and heterosexual interior designer Grace Adler (Debra Messing).

Their friends, rich socialite and frequently drunk Karen Walker (Megan Mullally) and effeminate gay struggling actor Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes), round out the group.

In later seasons, the show frequently features celebrity guest stars.

Behind the Scenes

The series finale performed well in the ratings and attracted over 18 million viewers. It ranked seventh for the week and marked the first time in two years that the once highly-rated sitcom landed in the top 10.
Karen’s obese husband Stan was often discussed but never seen. Karen’s stepson Mason (nicknamed “the fat one”) was also never seen.
The series was well-known (and often chided) for its frequent use of celebrity guest stars.
Will & Grace is one of only three sitcoms in which all actors playing the main characters (McCormack, Messing, Hayes, and Mullally) each won at least one acting Emmy. The other two are All in the Family and The Golden Girls.

    Not too long ago I watched the entire series. I never watched Will & Grce while it was on honestly. But my mom was a medium fan, so I watched it with her. Honestly it was better than I thought it be. It was funny and had a lot guest stars. I do think it’s better in medium doses though. But the chemistry Eric and Debra had was great, and with Sean and Megan the cast was great. This is just me, but if Megan and Sean weren’t in the show, it wouldn’t have lasted as long or been as funny. My mom made a good point about something. They made Sean’s character stereo typically gay. I mean he how you picture a gay man all the time. But that’s just our opinion. I would give this series a 8 out of 10. I would recommend this show to anyone who likes comdies. NOT JUST FOR WOMEN AND GAY MEN, even though it plays on lifetime. Guys if you want, call it a guilty pleasure. I’m next to postitive you’ll still like it. But like Friends, they always dropped a bombshell right at the end of a season, but of course it seems all shows are doing that today. Will & Grace probably will never be as popular as Friends or E.R. in NBC history, but definetly worth watching. If you agree or disagree with me please let me know, I 100% welcome your postitive and negative comments.
