Karen Blaming Talk Show Failure on Will & Grace
Megan Mullally is blaming the demise of her talk show on the fact that Debra Messing and Eric McCormack wouldn’t come on for a special Will & Grace reunion episode instead of blaming it on the fact that it was the suck and America isn’t interested in Karen not being Karen. Plus, didn’t all the graphics for the show feature flowers? God, that “feminine touch” thing is so blah. That’s why Tempest Bledsoe failed.
Sources tell TMZ that with her ratings already in the basement, Megan wanted to reunite the “W & G” cast on a special episode around her birthday, which fell during November sweeps. While Sean Hayes did appear in an episode that month, there was no getting Debra Messing or Eric McCormack aboard Meg’s sinking ship.
Honey, this makes me sad. Because while Will & Grace grew really annoying with all the stunt-casting, and all the Debra Messing; Karen was the best part of it. Bitch should have had her own show. But to succeed with a talk show these days – you need to either be a delightful carpet-muncher (Ellen), a racist (Rachael Ray), or think you’re a spiritual leader and construct schools in Africa and buy your audience cars (Oprah). It’s just how it is.
