Live season premiere for Will & Grace

NBC's Emmy-nominated comedy Will & Grace will kick off its final season with two live broadcasts, a separate one for the Eastern and Pacific time zones. The series was recently nominated for 15 Emmys.

Series cocreator Max Mutchnick said the writers of the show will be making changes to the script right up until air time, lending the premiere an exciting topicality. "We're going to have some very topical material," he said. Mutchnick, who created and executive-produces the show with David Kohan, also promised that there will be "a surprise element within the live telecast."

Powerhouse sitcom director James Burrows will also be on hand for the broadcast. "This will be like the classic golden era of television that I was weaned on, where the audience sees everything," he said. "Directing a live broadcast will be a first for me, and as long as I have been in the business, there are very few firsts."

If the live telecast isn't reason enough to tune in, the premiere will also guest-star Eric Stoltz and Alec Baldwin. Talk about a Golden Era!

UGH! When all you can rely on is stunt casting instead of jokes and stories and characters we care about.... This show has got to go!!

This show is in no way funny, entertaining, informative. Basically, it's a complete piece of crap. The only reason it gets nominated for anything is if it wouldn't, gay rights people would be all up their a$$es (no pun intended). I wonder if gay people even watch this.

It will be an interesting thing to see (interesting way to boost ratings). I'd like to see the cast improv...I don't watch the show so I don't know if they do already.

Although I'm not a fan of the show, this should be interesting to watch. Not only are they doing the episode live, but they're doing it live for both Eastern and Pacific broadcasts, so it should be interesting to see the differences between the two.

Despite the fact that this show is in no way funny or interesting to me, it's still pretty neat that they're doing a live broadcast.
