I heard a radio announcement that the cast of WILL AND GRACE was to be at the Barnes and Noble at Union Square this evening to sign copies of a new book about the show. I didn't get the time. I checked out the "events" section on the Barnes and Noble website and there was nothing to be found. I called the stor and the jerk who answered the phone could hardly speak English, let alone give me correct information.

I hate to think I missed the opportunity to venerate TAMrMcC in the flesh.

Does anyone know if there really was a book signing? Would Debra Messing be there on Rosh Hoshana?

Debra Messing was on Regis and Kelly this morning, so I don't think she has a problem with that. Wasn't the whole cast on Leno last night or the night before? I dunno. I think a big deal would have been made had they all been appearing for a signing.

I saw their appearance on Leno and I thought what a waste. For the most part they were trying to be "funny" and just weren't. I'm not a big fan of Debra Messing's, but she came across as the most down to earth.

Haha I'm excited too. As for them signing--wouldn't it be really publicised?

They were all on the Today Show this morning and Eric McCormack sang.

Was I just reading something about a recording that they've all done together?

I was getting ready for work, so I really wasn't paying attention to his song. It sounded like an original composition though.

He sang a song called " Living with grace" which appears on the just released cd from the show. Eric wrote the lyrics and Barry Manilow wrote the music and plays piano (on the cd).

I watched Leno...Megan looked really bored, to be frank. Otherwise, Debra looked amazing. It was kind of blah with them as a group. Better to have them each individually.

As for singing, how was he? Weren't they all theater trained and have some musical talents? Or am I mistaken?

Megan has musical talent up the yingyang. Her voice is incredible.
Nothing precious, plain to see, don't make a fuss over me. Not loud, not soft, but somewhere inbetween. Say sorry, just let it be the word you mean.

I think they all are theater trained. I thought Eric had a nice voice- very pleasant.


Debra looks so much better- not as emaciated. She exudes happiness.

Well thank God for that. It got to the point where I couldn't stand to look at her because she looked so terrifyingly anorexic.

Having a baby will put a few extra pounds on a body. I thought she lloked quite well in the show last night.

TAMrMcC sang very well when he was in THE MUSIC MAN a few years ago. I wish he sang "Till There Was You" full voice, but he's been directed to almost internalize his segment of the tune.

Sounds to me like the cast of WILL AND GRACE are out on a publicity blitz to shore up the ratings of their now-ho-hum series. Admit it, folks -- the writing has gone progressively down hill. Now it's just ridiculous.

I quit regularly watching it midway through Season 4. Karen buying a gay horse was my last episode. The few that I have caught since then have all been awful, too. SUCH a shame.

I agree, popcultureman. For me to really really laugh at something (now that I'm an adult, that is), it has to be grounded in reality (same things for things to scare me, btw). Jack dancing back-up for Jennifer Lopez, Karen and Rosario diving into the ocean from the yacht only to be picked up by a foreign fisherman, etc. I could go on and on. Will & Grace -- erg.

The series was always better early on when they dealt with less serious problems. Now that Grace has a crappy marriage, Stan's dead, etc. etc., it's not as funny. (I would have written this with more wit but it's too early.)
