[Seven/7:30pm] Will and Grace. Final. In tonight’s one hour final episode, will Will and Grace raise a child together and find ultimate happiness? Will Jack find anyone that loves him as much as he loves himself? Will Karen find true happiness with the absence of Stan? All these questions and more will be answered once and for all. Plus, we take a look at some of the funniest and touching moments that we have shared with Will, Grace, Jack and Karen. Starring ERIC MCCORMACK, DEBRA MESSING, SEAN HAYES and MEGAN MULLALLY. Well it’s got some great gags, but structurally this is a bit muddled. Time and space seems to jump all over the place here, dream sequences, flash forwards etc. Still, it was a fab little series, and some beloved characters emerged. And kudos to sole director for every single episode the legendary James Burrows.
