NBC Universal Though it made for one of the best scenes of the early seasons, this guy clearly was not Grace's forever match. Danny Danny Tom Verica was one of Grace's longest relationships: But as usual, meddlesome Will was right, and Danny was still a total toolbag.
Grace may not win any awards for maturity, but she deserved better than this guy. Josh Hollywood would have us believe that the ideal partner is one who is completely in tune with our needs.

Alleging that the network sold the rights to the series in an attempt to keep profits within the NBC family, Kohan and Mutchnick felt that they were cheated out of considerable profits because the network did not shop the show to the highest bidder. Another allegation against the network was that during the first four seasons of the series, the studio licensed the rights for amounts that were insufficient for covering production costs, thus leading to extraordinarily large production deficits.
