While we lament that Steve Carell isn't around anymore to play off of his former 'The Daily Show' correspondent, tonight will mark one of the best 'The Office' castings to date, when 'The Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert drops by Dunder-Mifflin as Andy's old band-mate Broccoli Rob for the NBC sitcom's Halloween episode 'Here Comes Treble.' Of course, Colbert will have plenty of tension with fellow former co-star Ed Helms as well, so how would you like a first look?
Just because 'The Office' will officially come to an end after nine seasons by the end of the year doesn't mean you won't still be seeing the Dunder-Mifflin crew on TV. No, we're not talking about 'The Farm,' 'The Mindy Project,' or even Angela Kinsey's new FOX comedy. Instead' breakout star Craig Robinson will finally get his due when 'The Office' creator Greg Daniels develops a new NBC sitcom around him! But what role will the loveable 'Hot Tub Time Machine' star play?
After a week off because of the Vice-Presidential debates, 'The Office' returns with the central conflict of its final season seeming to be Jim wanting a new job that Pam is not crazy about. How will this drama unfold, and what's to be made of the new guys Pete and Clark?
The last episode ("Andy's Ancestry") was the season high so far, which makes us wonder: has the show hit its stride, or are we in for a weak send off? As a bonus, the episode was directed by Bryan Cranston, so it's got that going for it. Read on for our review of this week's episode "Work Bus."
Stars of 'The Office,' it is officially time to abandon ship. Mindy Kaling certainly got the ball rolling early by departing the NBC staple's final season for her own series 'The Mindy Project' on FOX, and many other 'Office' stars have movie careers to fall back on as well. So while the series may end up continuing in the Dwight Schrute-centric 'The Farm,' what current 'Office' star has made a deal of his or her own?
Oh that Josh Groban. Always willing to poke a bit of fun at himself, always leaving us with a song in our hearts. After his most recent turn helping Jimmy Kimmel eulogize himself in memoriam at the 2012 Emmys, and rather than return to his occasional 'Glee' guest spot, the piano crooner is setting his sights on a return to the final season of NBC's 'The Office!' Reprising his role as Andy Bernard's younger brother Walter Jr., fans are going to find something different about Groban's appearance this time however...
Last week on 'The Office,' we got a better sense of the new guys (one of who might be something of a date rapist), and the growing tension between Pam and Jim, as he covertly plans to get a new job.
"Roy's Wedding" was mostly a miss, so we're really hoping the show course-corrects and becomes awesome in the final stretch (this is the final season). So how does the latest episode stack up? Read on for our in-depth recap of "Andy's Ancestry."
As last week's 'The Office' started the beginning of the last season of the hit show, it introduced us to two new characters, and suggested Jim might be ready to move on to something bigger and brighter than Dunder Miflin. "New Guys" wasn't a banner episode, but it did introduce our newest members of the cast, and they could be fun.
So have they finally hit their stride now that the groundwork's been laid for a series conclusion, or are we going to have to still deal with more set up for how things wrap up? "Roy's Wedding" is this week's episode and it brings back a familiar face (not Steve Carell) to the proceedings. Read on for our in-depth recap of "Roy's Wedding."
When we last left the Dunder-Mifflin branch at the end of season 8, Andy was put in charge, while Dwight Shrute waited to find out if Angela's baby was his. As we go into the final season of 'The Office,' we're hoping that giving the show an end point will re-energize everyone as we head into the ninth season with the addition of some new cast players, a few of the regular cast already departing, and with the upcoming set-up of the spin-off show 'The Farm.'
So how does the season premiere turn out? Read on for our in-depth recap of season 9 premiere "New Guys."
Can you say "casting announcement of the year?" While 'The Office' officially returns tonight for its ninth, and final season (please don't remind us about 'The Farm') it's no secret that the upcoming year is bound to attract new and old guest stars alike, including some big names. Well, if we don't yet know if Michael Scott will make the trek back to Dunder-Mifflin, how about Steve Carell's one-time 'Daily Show' co-star Stephen Colbert? A victory for America, it is.
For the moment we're going to pretend that 'The Farm' isn't actually a thing, and that Thursday, September 24 will really see the premiere of 'The Office's ninth and final season. No longer will we wonder what the next stage of Jim and Pam's relationship will be, what new insanity Dwight Schrute will concoct, or even how poorly Andy fills the void left by Michael Scott. Instead, before the new guys get into some "Office Bullying" tomorrow night, wouldn't you like to fondly remember the best moments of the last eight years? Break out the tissues!
