The Promo for NBC’s James Burrows Tribute Brings All the Sitcom Stars Together, Just as Jack Donaghy Would Have Wanted

NBC’s Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows airs tonight at 9 p.m. The event has been hyped as a near-reunion of the Friends cast (minus Matthew Perry), but it’s really focused on the man who directed 1,000 episodes of television. The lineup for the event includes everyone from the cast of Cheers, The Big Bang Theory, Will & Grace, and more. As you can tell from this charming little promo reel, that’s a lot of funny people. Woody Harrelson has some McConaughey jokes. Rhea Perlman hangs out in a bathtub. Matt LeBlanc gets a spa treatment. It’s all very sweet, though as far as NBC mega-promos go, this is no “Brotherhood of Man.”
