This Underrated TV Show Is Better Than "Friends"

What is this show BETTER than Friends? It's Will & Grace!!! Click to see Why.

Posted on

Too many people talk about how great Friends is, and I've gotta admit it is a good show.

BUT "Will & Grace" deserves A LOT more attention and love (at least as much as "Friends" does) and here is why.

It changed America's view of homos

Yes, those two main characters (Will and Grace, respectively) are watching gay porn.

As you can see, the show had a lot of gay characters and a lot more homosexuals action, if you know what I mean.

In September 1998, following the 1997-'98 failure of ABC's Ellen, Will & Grace was launched on NBC-TV as the first program to have an openly gay male character as the lead on primetime television. Defying expectations, the sitcom would run from 1998 through 2006 and be ranked as the highest-rated sitcom in America among viewers aged 18 to 49 from 2001 to 2005.
The show undoubtedly opened doors and desensitized America to homosexuality, paving the way for future shows.

So everyone who's a huge sucker for the Ellen DeGeneres show,

and everyone who gets their panties wet from the gay sex-scenes of How to get away with murder owe Will & Grace big time.
