Will & Grace Premiere Set for October 24 and Replaces Sunnyside

-

We’re getting the Will & Grace premiere earlier than we thought. The 11th and final season of Will & Grace will begin Thursday, Oct. 24 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC and replaces Sunnyside.

The remaining six episodes of the 10-episode Sunnyside order will air weekly on the NBC App, other digital platforms and NBC.com. They are currently in production on episode nine and will finish production of all 10 episodes.


NBC says: “Our fall strategy was always to capitalize on the compatibility of both of Mike Schur’s The Good Place and“Sunnyside. We see huge opportunity for potential on the digital side for Sunnyside and want to move the show exclusivity to digital.”

The network says that Sunnyside has generated substantial increases through digital and linear delayed viewing, which has expanded the 18-49 audience of the show’s premiere episode by 150% versus its next-day rating, growing since its Sept. 26 telecast from a “live plus same day” 0.4 rating to a 1.0.

Last season, Will & Grace averaged a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.3 million viewers in “live plus seven day” averages from Nielsen Media Research, to build on its timeslot lead-in by +1.7 million persons or +48% in total viewers (5.3 million vs. 3.6 million). After 35 days of digital and linear delayed viewing, those “Will & Grace” season averages grew to 2.3 rating in 18-49 and 6.9 million viewers overall. Through the season, the series reached more than 30 million people.


The series has earned 91 Emmy Award nominations, 18 Emmy wins (including Outstanding Comedy Series) and seven SAG Awards among dozens of other kudos. In addition, the show is one of the few in TV history where each member of the cast won an Emmy.

Will & Grace stars Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes. Max Mutchnick and David Kohan write and executive produce. James Burrows directs and executive produces. The series is produced by Universal Television.
