Around the remote: ‘Will & Grace’ reboot opens second season

By Chuck Barney Tribune News Service

DON’T MISS: “Will & Grace” – After launching a successful revival last fall, the fab four of Will, Grace, Jack and Karen return for more shenanigans. In the opener, Grace’s accidental run-in with Noah (guest star David Schwimmer), a curmudgeonly man she follows on Twitter, hints at a possible new love interest. Meanwhile, Jack wants to look younger before meeting Estefan’s (Brian Jordan Alvarez) family on Skype but makes a terrible first impression after overdoing the numbing cream before his facial procedure. (9 p.m. Thursday, NBC).
