    Various press releases yesterday.

    I did email NBC, as politely as I could, and asked for all sorts of scheduling info. Because there are a lot of things that don't make sense.

    Okay, so here is what I know. I haven't heard back from NBC yet, but, based off of various press releases, OfficeTally, and Excel spreadsheets:
    spoilered for length, no respoilers except titles

    ***SPOILER***


    That would give us 29 half hours for the season, which is what is supposed to happen. So that is a long set of uninterrupted new ones. The season finale will be an hour, but split into two half hours. So similar to Lecture Circuit in that sense.
    Again, most of this is not yet confirmed by NBC.

    I've known about Blood Drive for months and months. Why are we only getting a synopsis now? Oh yeah, because NBC stinks.

    On this very special Valentine's in March episode:
    It's Valentine's Day at the office. Michael meets a mysterious woman at a Valentine's blood drive. Dwight and Kevin pair up with single women at the office "Lonely Hearts Party." Meanwhile Jim and Pam are banished from the office for being too publicly affectionate, and have an awkward lunch with Phyllis and Bob.

    I'm all for Jim/Pam PDA.... even though I doubt it will be anything major. Heck, I'm still just ready for Jim and Pam to act as if they are dating. They need to interact more. *grumbles*

    Anyways, New Boss has been confirmed - 3/19. slightly more spoilerish

    This is a great thread to keep up-to-date on the latest episode info. As a compliment, I have created a page that highlights all upcoming episodes of The Office on TBS/NBC. I plan to maintain it throughout the season with confirmed listings from network sites. Check it out and let me know what you think:

    Enjoy!

    Two Weeks (not two weeks notice as previously reported)

    Michael's relationship with the new vice president (guest star Idris Elba) becomes increasingly tense, as Michael finds an excuse to goof off even more than usual. Meanwhile, Pam faces the challenge of a new copier and Kelly develops a crush.

    So, as much as I hope its Kelly and Andy, it's likely Kelly and Idris. Plus, they got the chairs... and now they have the copier.

    Hunter, I don't think we're going to get any more full-hour episodes this season. We've "officially" gotten 15 episodes so far, but "Weight Loss" and "Stress Relief" were both a full hour, so that gives us 17 half-hours. We were promised 28. If we get a new half-hour every week through May 14 (with the exceptions of none on 4/2 and two split around the "Parks & Recreation" premiere on 4/9), that would be exactly 11 more...giving us our promised total of 28. Of course, if one of the April dates is a repeat, then yes, we'll have to get a full hour somewhere else...

    Anyway, I've updated the calendar for the first time in forever. It's all there now!

    Tanster (at OfficeTally) said one of the episodes are an hour long. That's all I know. But I can't keep track of any math or anything. Counting is not my strong point.

    I'm lookinf forward to it. Even if I can already guess the entire interview (what happens when you listen to the boy constantly).

    Anywas, David Brent/Ricky Gervais may guest star in the final episode. Not sure how it would work out, but apparently, its been discussed:
    :
    David Brent could appear in the last episode of the US version of The Office.

    Ricky Gervais is tipped to reprise his role as the Slough-based boss alongside US star Steve Carell.

    Carell's co-star Rainn Wilson revealed the plan at a party in Los Angeles.

    He said: "Hopefully we'll do it for the final show."

    But, it was from a sort of untrustworthy source, so take it for what you will.
