Jack and Karen, together again! Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally were on hand to celebrate legendary Will & Grace director James Burrows and E! News has your first look at this reunion. Nostalgia never felt (and looked) so good.

Hayes, Mullally and costar Eric McCormack were just some of the many stars who came together for NBC's Must See TV: An All Star Tribute to James Burrows. Burrows recently directed his 1,000th episode of TV, an episode of NBC's upcoming comedy Crowded. He's been behind the camera on some of your favorite shows, including The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Friends, Mike & Molly and Frasier. To honor Burrows, the casts many of those shows and more assembled for a taped tribute and retrospective.

"There is nobody with better TV comedy instincts than Jimmy Burrows, and because of his guiding hand these remarkable shows will be forever celebrated and stand the test of time," Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement when the special was originally announced. "The caliber of talent joining us to celebrate Jimmy's accomplishments is a testament to his imprint in television history."
