‘Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows’ seriously brought the manpower — and the ‘Will and Grace’ segment was one of the best parts. We forgot how much we loved this quirky show!
Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack, and Megan Mullally all reunited on stage — and it was absolutely incredible. Sadly, Debra Messing was not in attendance. We knew they’d all be there since Sean, Megan and Debra are both on their own NBC shows — Debra on The Mysteries of Laura; Megan on You, Me and the Apocalypse, and Sean on a new show, Crowded. Clearly, James Burrows is a huge director since he actually worked on all 188 episodes of Will and Grace!
Is Karen Walker dead? Is Karen married to Donald Trump? According to the hilarious cast, yes! Sean, Eric and Megan hit the stage to reminisce about the amazing times they shared. Sadly, Debra couldn’t make the big event due to the big NYC snow storm! She did send in a pre-recorded message — tear.
Sean was actually there for both Will and Grace and his new show, Crowded that James also has directed — his 1,000th episode ever was there. “This show, I’ve witnessed the same feeling that I had on Will and Grace and Hot in Cleveland,” he told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour, including HollywoodLife.com. “And I’m not just saying that. The laughs are enormous and the writing is so smart and quick. I honestly believe if people give it a chance, it’s going to be a massive hit.”
He also referred to Jim Burrows as “the Steven Spielberg of TV.” Will and Grace ran from 1998 to 2006, and James Burrows directed all 188 episodes!
