COZI TV to Air Will & Grace Fabulous Firsts Marathon on October 6; Dancing with the Stars: Juniors Announces Celeb Kids Lineup

Will & Grace

Fans of the iconic sitcom Will & Grace will have a chance to celebrate the many "firsts" of the series with COZI TV just after the new season premieres on NBC. A day-long marathon, "Will & Grace Fabulous Firsts" will highlight first-time events, character debuts and other great moments of the series – some of which are groundbreaking, and others are simply fun. The marathon will feature 20 episodes and air on COZI TV on October 6, 2018 beginning at 9 AM and ending at 7 PM.

The hit comedy features actors Debra Messing as Grace Adler, Megan Mullally as Karen Walker, Eric McCormack as Will Truman and Sean Hayes as Jack McFarland. Best friends Will and Grace embrace life in New York City as roommates, navigating the ever-changing landscape alongside their eccentric friends Karen and Jack.

The "Will & Grace Fabulous Firsts" includes the episodes where we first met recurring characters like Nathan (Woody Harrelson), Lorraine (Minnie Driver) and Vince (Bobby Canavale). There are also the first appearances of the "Just Jack" cabaret show and the "Anastasia Beaverhausen" Karen persona, along with iconic episodes such as "Acting Out", where Will and Jack accidentally kiss, marking the first same-sex kiss in the show's history.

Will & Grace originally aired on NBC starting in 1998, with the season eight finale arriving in 2006. The show returned to NBC for its ninth season on September 28, 2017. Season ten is set to premiere on October 4 at 9 PM.
