Episodes of Will & Grace, My Name Is Earl and The Office will be all super-sized on Thursday, May 11. Each will air for 40 minutes. Earl and Office will be season finales. Will & Grace will ends its run with a one-hour series finale the following week.
Will & Grace will lead off the super-sized night, with Tony winner Bernadette Peters guest-starring as Karen's (Megan Mullally) long-lost sister, Gin. The episode will also feature Josh Lucas (Poseidon) playing himself and offering career advice to Jack (Sean Hayes), and a bit of baby drama between Grace (Debra Messing) and Will (Eric McCormack), courtesy of Will's boyfriend, Vince (Bobby Cannavale).
Earl (Jason Lee) will hit a rough patch on the season finale of My Name Is Earl when he decides to cross off the No. 1 item on his list: "Stole $10 from a guy at the Camden Market." Easy enough, but Earl then realizes he owes the guy all of his lottery winnings, leaving him broke and in need of a whole lot of karma.
Office star Steve Carell wrote the script for his show's season finale, in which Michael (Carell) organizes a charity casino night for the employees of Dunder Mifflin. The festive atmosphere leads some of the staff to take other kinds of gambles.
