On Will & Grace:

Will bought his parents a cruise trip for their anniversary, and while reading
the brochure, his mother said, "Oh look, we can skate with Michelle Kwan!"  To
which Grace replied, "It sounded better when we bought the tickets."
(paraphrase) to which the audience laughed at first and then most of them
booed.

Later on, after Will's parents decided to separate, he and Grace were
discussing going on the cruise but being sad.  Grace: "Well, we won't be the
saddest ones on the ship."  They both sighed, stuck their fingers in the desert
and said, "Michelle."

On ER:

Luka is taking a date to the Ice Capades.  Abby teases him about this, and when
he is leaving she says, "Don't want to keep Tai and Randy waiting!"  :-)

Yeah, I thought that was pretty bad-natured.  That show's always been
catty, but they went out of their way on that one.

Will and Grace are just reiterating how the general public feels about
Michelle--she lost the Olympic gold and because of the amount of hype before
the Olympics she looks like a loser now.

Now this is in really poor taste.  Shame on the writers for taking an
easy shot at an undeserving target and good for the audience for
booing!

This is cute, but it would be nice if the general population would
realize that the ice capades no longer exist.

Well, it's not the first time they've done something like this.  They did the
same thing to Tara Lipinski a couple of years ago.  I didn't see the episode,
but I understand that most of the audience didn't  think it was too funny.
