If you didn’t already know, Will & Grace is an American sitcom set in New York City which focuses on the relationship between the two best friend William Truman (Eric McCormack), a gay lawyer, and Grace Adler (Debra Messing), a straight interior designer. It also explores issues with the LGBT community as well as their relationships with the two other characters Jack and Karen.
Originally, the show received initial criticism due to its portrayal of the gay community but eventually went on to become one of NBC’s Must See TV Thursday night lineup. The show was the highest-rated sitcom among adults 18-49 from 2001 and 2005 due to its rather scandalous humor and inability to conform to rules. It ran a total of 8 seasons earning 16 Emmy Awards and 83 nominations. In 2014, the Writers Guild of America placed the show number 94 in their list of Best Written TV Series of All Time.
