    I watched it last night! Very funny, next week Will and Grace are moving back in 2gether - thats when their at their funniest. When they did the Britney dance the real music didnt come in, so i didnt find it that funny, plus ive seen it so much on the adverts. But anyway ..."Kiss it, Kiss it, Spank it" lol..."Man trouble?...now you're talking Jackanese"! lol....this shows so funny

    Really Lynx? I find it to be very sharp and very funny, although the in-yer-face campness humour sometimes goes over the top. Karen and Jack and by far funnier than Will and Grace, especially Karen. She's such a drunk.

    It's OK, but I prefer the traditional Friends and Seinfeld.

    Awww, I love Will & Grace. It's part of the trio of TV shows that I watch on Thurs. nights...my only real TV time.

    Madonna was on this week's episode. Good stuff

    Have you watched My Wife and Kids? If not, you should. It's air on ABC on Wednesday, dunno about NewZealand time. But if you have chance, you should watch it. I saw couple of episdoes; and loved it. It's about a Father, dealing with his trouble kids and Wife. And frankly, it's really hilarious!

    I never got into this show. I don't even watch the must MUST SEE TV Lineup on NBC. I did happen to see the episode with Madonna and I didn't laugh, only a little smirk.

    I luv that show, to be honest I like it over Will & Grace, but not over Friends. That show is one of the bests ever. Will and Grace is ok I guess, it lacks something I can't explain, but that girl Karen is so funny, but the funniest person is Phoebe tho.

    Bump

    So yes I've become extra-obsessed with this once again. Been watching the DVDs, found some brilliant quotes.

    (About Grace)
    Jack: Why isn't she talking?
    Karen: She's hypnotised by her own dress.

    Karen: Good Lord! I can't believe I'm at a public pool. Why doesn't somebody just pee directly on me?

    Karen: Kids ruin everything! I mean look at the stitching on this. You cannot trust a ten year old to do a good hidden button!

    Karen: Maybe there is an alligator running around with me as a handbag... I mean who knows what they do with my old skin...

    My 3 favourites:

    Karen: What's going on? I'm sensing a mood.
    Grace: Will thinks that I'm taking advantage of...
    Karen: - Save it, honey. We'll crack it open later when we're desperate.

    Karen: I haven't seen a stampede like this since Pamplona. Oh, my god, listen to me. I'm a funny lesbian. I'm Ellen!

    Karen: I'm Anastasia Beaverhausen. Anastasia like Russian royalty, Beaverhausen like... where the beaver live.

    Oh I do like this
    It never fails to crack me up!
    The best line ever has to be from Jack.

    Jack: I'm fat! Je suis fatigue
    I nearly wet myself at that.

    Is there anyone watching the current series? I feel that it is good but not as sparkling as it once was. But Karen still rocks.

    I used to watch Will & Grace but gradually it really annoyed me. The characters aren't that great, writers aren't the best and I really hat Jacks hairdo :evil:

    Karen still remains hilarious though!

    Hope she's better than Madonna. I thought that was awful.

    Despite Madonna's numerous acting jobs, her acting has never got any better. She has more Razzie's than any other actress. I think Janet should be alright, she seems to be able to turn her hand to anything. (e.g singer - stripper).

    She didn't really have a very big part in it though. Not compared to J.Lo anyway.

    I loved the part when Karen started doing the dance routine with Jack during the dance-off.

    From the Hollywood reporter:

    After a lengthy renewal negotiation, NBC and the producers and cast of "Will & Grace" have clasped hands on a deal for an eighth and probably final season of the Emmy-winning comedy series.

    Contrary to earlier speculation about the actors facing pay cuts, sources said the show's four key cast members -- Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally -- secured significant salary bumps in the one-year deals that were hammered out late Friday (HR 4/21).

    Each of the actors will pocket between $13 million-$15 million, or about $600,000 per episode, compared to fees estimated at $400,000 per-episode this season. NBC has ordered at least 24 episodes of the NBC Universal-produced "Will & Grace," plus a highlights clip show, probably in anticipation of a series finale in spring 2006. And for the first time since the series debuted in 1998, Mullally and Hayes will be brought up to full paycheck parity with Messing and McCormack, sources said.

    NBC declined comment on the deal late Friday. Representatives for the actors declined comment or could not be reached during the weekend.

    The actors' pay hike comes even as NBC has cut the license fee it will pay to its sibling production unit for the upcoming season to what sources said was about $4 million per episode, compared to a fee in the neighborhood of $5 million per episode this season. "Will & Grace," like the rest of NBC's Thursday lineup, has taken a big hit ratingswise this season.

    But overall, "Will & Grace" has been highly successful in syndication, and the long-term backend value of the additional episodes will more than offset the higher cast costs and anticipated production deficits next season, sources said.

    The show's core cast members are among the most honored TV actors of the past decade, with Messing, McCormack, Mullally and Hayes each having earned one Emmy and a slew of nominations for their work during the past seven years. "Will & Grace" won the Emmy trophy for best comedy series in 2000.

    NBC's renewal negotiations on the show were complicated by the litigation pending between NBC and series creator/executive producers David Kohan and Max Mutchnick. (James Burrows, another profit participant and executive producer on "Will & Grace," is not involved with the suit).

    Mutchnick and Kohan sued NBC in late 2003, claiming they were short-changed of potential profits in an earlier license fee renewal negotiation on the show because the studio (then NBC Studios, now NBC Universal TV Studio) was motivated to keep the show at its sibling broadcast network rather than shop it around to the highest bidder.

    NBC has strongly denied cutting any sweetheart deals on "Will & Grace." In court papers, NBC has maintained that its previous three-season renewal deal for "Will & Grace" was highly lucrative for the profit participants and in line with fees paid by NBC and other networks for comparable series.

    Despite the legal wrangling and "Will & Grace's" ratings slide this year, NBC brass likely saw retaining the show as a crucial move at a time when it has few comedies on the air and it is struggling to stay competitive with its Big Four network rivals.
