Brewing Coffee - Use Grounds Once More?

I have a standard 12 Cup Mr. Coffee machine for everyday life use. I typically try to buy good quality coffees which are not always "cheap." I use a lot of coffee in the basket (probably too much).
Often at parties, the 12 Cupper empties fast and I need to make another pot. Can you run another 12 cups through with the same grounds in the basket? Will it be watery?
I've never tried it before..I detest weak coffee, so this probably isn't a good idea.
ay yi yi, stella: don't do it! or, just for fun, do an experimental run. let us know how it tastes!
No, it will be weak and you'll hate it.
For parties, buy less expensive coffee. Even 8 o'clock is fine for a party.
One more vote for ick, don't do try it. I've done that once by mistake - thought I had changed the grounds but in fact the old ones were still in there - and it was nasty.
