Oh, my god! Will & Grace was ...

Question: Oh, my god! Will & Grace was great last week! So now that Grace is pregnant, will Leo be back? I take it he's the baby's father after they joined the mile-high club earlier this season.


Answer: I'd say that's a pretty good guess. With the show concluding in May, a Leo/Grace/baby happy-ending scenario would make sense. And I also thought Thursday's episode was pretty darn hilarious. I loved when Karen made that "wedding zinger" crack and then, awed by her own cleverness, went on to explain in detail that she was doing a riff on the movie Wedding Singer. It was classic Karen.

OOPS, SHE'S DOING IT AGAIN

Just days after it was announced that Britney Spears will guest on Will & Grace as a Bible-thumper who brings to Jack's cable show, among other things, a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's," the NBC comedy has come under fire from the American Family Association — the same advocacy group that targeted The Book of Daniel. The AFA claims Spears' story line "mocks the crucifixion of Christ" and will "further denigrate Christianity" by airing April 13, the night before Good Friday. In response, NBC claims the episode summary that went out contained "erroneous information" and that the script has yet to actually be written. read more

GUEST STAR 4 U

Britney Spears

Oops, Will & Grace is doing it again — stunt casting, that is. As first hinted in the new issue of TV Guide magazine, producers have snagged Britney Spears for a guest shot. Here are the deets: In the April 13 episode, when a Christian TV network takes over "Jack Talk," Spears is brought on as Jack's new religious cohost, even adding her own touches like a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's." This is also good news for Spears' husband, Kevin Federline: He is more than welcome to drive her to the NBC studio. read more

NBC RENEWS TWO, SHUFFLES OTHERS

In other Peacock Network news, both My Name Is Earl and The Office have been picked up (and deservedly so) for next season, Will & Grace's eighth and last season will conclude May 18 with a one-hour retrospective and an hourlong finale, and, post-Olympics, The Apprentice and Deal or No Deal will call Monday home, pushing Las Vegas to Friday. Meanwhile, Law & Order will air an hour earlier on Wednesdays — opposite Lost. Now that's criminal intent. read more

First, congrats on your great ...

Question: First, congrats on your great column. My weeks always start and end with you. I wanted to get your feeling on the representation of homosexuality on TV shows lately, because I feel that we've reached a turning point. I think that after a short period of (needed?) overexposure, with every show having a gay character and shows like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Queer as Folk, we are actually moving toward equality between gay and straight characters. For instance, I know that a lot of gay people have ground their teeth at Andrew being gay and evil on Desperate Housewives, but I actually believe that this is a good thing: We've got past the dichotomy of, on the one hand, the political correctness of the gay guy who's a great guy with no sexuality (Will & Grace) and, on the other hand, the cliché of the gay guy with nothing but his sexuality (Queer as Folk). Finally gay characters get to be something else than "just gay." They are handled the same way as straight characters ... read more

ADMIT IT: YOU LOVE TO TATUM

Dancing with the Stars' Nick Kosovich and Tatum O'Neal

Thursday's second-season premiere of Dancing with the Stars led ABC to an overall second-place finish for the night, attracting 17.33 million viewers — a 29 percent bump from the series' summer debut and the network's best regular-programming showing in the Thursday 8-10 pm block since Nov. 16, 2000. Elsewhere, NBC's Will & Grace bowed in its new time slot with 7.98 million viewers (a slight improvement over Joey), newbie Four Kings drew 8.84 mil, and the new My Name Is Earl-The Office comedy hour averaged 10 mil — close to (but not quite) Apprentice numbers. read more

Four Kings NBC continues...

Four KingsNBC continues itsThursday-night tradition of inserting mediocre sitcoms between great ones. Remember The Single Guy? How about Jesse or Inside Schwartz or Stark Raving Mad or Cursed? Must-Not-See TV is more like it. Or Must-Wait-a-Half-Hour-Before-I-See TV. Perhaps I'm just bitter that Scrubs isn't in this time slot. I mean, how perfect would that be? NBC was brilliant to move My Name Is Earl and The Office to Thursday, but it should be Scrubs that follows Will & Grace, not this show. OK, I didn't hate it — I just didn't laugh. Not once. And that ain't good. I was glad to hear Anne Meara's voice in the beginning and at the end, but other than the "bro's before ho's" line that on read more

Is "Bumped Joey" Now on Earl's List?

My Name Is Earl's Jason Lee

Tonight, Earl Hickey claims that which is rightly his: a berth on NBC's Must-See TV slate, as the freshman hit My Name Is Earl relocates from Tuesday to Thursday at 9 pm/ET, where it will be followed by the equally worthy tagalong The Office. The shake-up also shuffles Will & Grace to the 8 o'clock slot, begging the question — and TVGuide.com wasn't afraid to ask it — of whether Earl will be adding "aided and abetted the bumping of Joey from NBC's lineup" to his famous list of wrongdoings.

Will Four Kings Trump Its Rivals?

Seth Green is one of Four Kings

Four Kings, the new NBC comedy (premiering tonight at 8:30 pm/ET) from Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, treads Friends-ly territory with the story of four lifelong buds — Barry (Seth Green, the Austin Powers movies; Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Ben (Josh Cooke, Committed), Bobby (Shane McRae) and Jason (Todd Grinnell) — who inherit an improbably fantastic New York City apartment when Ben's grandmother passes away. With a quartet of young actors onboard, the backstage shenanigans probably rival what you'll see on screen. "One of the games we play, involving a blue fuzzy pillow being wi read more
