"Will & Grace" star Sean Hayes is leading the way again.

The openly gay Hayes, who played Jack on the NBC series "Will & Grace," is one of the actors credited with helping change perceptions about gay people via that hit show.

This fall he is coming back to his former network as the star of "Sean Saves The World" in which he will play a gay single dad of a teen daughter. But Hayes will not be among as big a crowd of gay leading characters on broadcast television as he would have been had his show premiered last year.
