[ # ] Will & Grace pays tribute to I Love Lucy tonight
April 9th, 2020 under Debra Messing, Lucille Ball, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, Sean Hayes


Tonight at 9p on NBC, Will & Grace goes back to the ’50s as they pay tribute to another sitcom.

Grace (Debra Messing), Jack (Sean Hayes) and Karen (Megan Mullally) all ask Will who he thinks is the most like Lucielle Ball. When he doesn’t give an answer, they imagine themselves doing one of her iconic scenes from the legendary series.

Grace goes first and she recreates the Vitameatavegamin commercial. You can tell that Messing was meant to be a Lucy. She looks just like her. So much so, you would think she was Lucy.

Jack imagines working in the chocolate factory with Ethel (Messing), and their boss is Lucie Arnaz. In case you don’t know, she is Ball and Desi Arnaz’s daughter. Back to Jack, you can tell he was inspired by the comedienne.

Finally, Karen smashes some grapes with a surprise guest. I try to be positive, but I was very disappointed by Mullally’s performance on tonight’s episode. Maybe I was not in on the joke, but I expected better from her.

Then there is Will, who plays Ricky Ricardo in all of the segments. As much as I would have wanted to see him as Lucy, he is the perfect Ricky to their Lucys.

Who is the biggest Lucy of them all? You just have to watch to see.

If Desi and Lucy were alive today, they would be applauding the whole episode. You don’t have to be a fan of either show to enjoy tonight’s episode. You just have to be a fan of laughing.
