WILL & GRACE
NBC, SEPT. 28
(Thursdays, 9 ET/PT)
Yes, there are far too many remakes coming — and most for shows that would be better left dead. But for this one, the time just could be right for Will’s return. The stars seem excited and on top of their games; the creators are back on board; and we’re all in dire need of a comedy that is laugh-out-loud funny, as Will was at its height. Maybe it will all still go the way of Netflix’s dismal Arrested Development return, but as long as optimism remains free, why not be optimistic?

I’m not in favor of TV shows coming back to life, but I’m all for great TV actors returning — and few are finer than Kyra Sedgwick. This time she plays a TV producer whose daughter is kidnapped, a crime that reveals the secrets of everyone it touches. This 10-episode limited series gets off to a beautifully taut start, and you don’t have to worry about being left hanging. The producer promises the main story will be wrapped up in the finale.
