When “Will & Grace” ended, fans of the funny lady were excited to see what she’d do next. Would she return to Broadway? Land a new sitcom? Reveal hidden dramatic depths? She did none of those things, choosing instead to launch her own syndicated talk show in 2006. Considering that she’d gained fame as a tart-tongued alcoholic, the decision was a strange one—and NBC Universal realized it somewhat belatedly, canceling the show after only 71 episodes. Mullally bounced back quickly, though, starring on Broadway in Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” and turning in a series of stellar guest spots on sitcoms.
