GMMR Teams up with for “The Office” TVj

August 17, 2006 by  

The Office Give Me My Remote

I’ve got some really exciting news to share with all my Office-ianados fans out there. Starting tonight, yes, TONIGHT I will be hosting the first ever TVj session for The Office.Huh? What? Ok here’s the What…When…Why…and How of it all!!!

What: is a fantastic website that brings fans together to chat LIVE during your favorite show. Each week a TVj (an expert on your favorite shows) moderates an online chat where fans can ask questions and chit chat live before, during, and after the show.

I’ve been honored to be appointed The Office TVj, so I will be leading the chat tonight, and all throughout the season. This is a great way for all the Office-ianados to watch the show together.

When: The GMMR/”Office” TVj session will be held every Thursday starting tonight and throughout season 3. Since I’m on the East Coast, the chat will be held live at 8:30pm EST. BUT, but, but…I’d LOVE to do a live chat with my West Coast peeps if you are into it. So if you promise to show up, I will hold a TVj session for the West Coast (starting TONIGHT)…I just need to hear from you Left Coasters ASAP.

Why: Because it’s so much more fun to watch The Office with friends. I know how many of you already show up in the GMMR forums during the show, but just think…now it’s like we can watch the show together. You can ask questions and chat with each other while watching your favorite Dunder Mifflinites.

How: First off, is a completely FREE experience. All you have to do is register (and that takes about 2 seconds). I’ll even walk you through the “How” step-by-step:

Step 1: Head over to

Step 2: In the upper left hand corder of the page, click on “Click here to sign in”

Step 3: Fill out the required fields

Step 4: Go back to the home page, and right on the main screen you will see a listing for tonight’s Office TVj session. Click the remind button and you’re set

Step 5: The MOST important step. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE join the chat tonight. This is my very first chat and I SO need my GMMRers to show up and help me out. Seriously, please come!!!! I’m a little nervous no one will show up. What if I get there and there are 2 people that I don’t know and they HATE me (ha ha ha). I’m not kidding….I need my peeps. So please email me or leave me a comment letting me know that you have signed up over at and what chat you will be attending (East Coast or West Coast).

And if you have any questions about or tonight Office TVj session, definitely shoot me an email. PLEASE JOIN US!!!!

    […] Secondly, my friend Kathie over at GIVE ME MY REMOTE is really nervous about tonight’s episode of THE OFFICE. No, it’s not because she had a small role as Paper Salesman #3. Rather she’s nervous because she’s hosting her first ever OFFICE chat over on If you’re a fan of THE OFFICE, do me (and more importantly) Kathie a favour by joining tonight’s chat. It’s tonight at 8:30pm. Click here for instructions on how to join. It’s FREE and will no doubt be FUN. […]

  6. kelli on August 17th, 2006 1:04 pm

  8. Nikki on August 17th, 2006 1:10 pm

  9. mg714 on August 17th, 2006 1:22 pm

    GMMR – Just signed up over at BuddyTV and will do my best to join you on the East Coast chat!

  10. GMMR on August 17th, 2006 2:09 pm

    HEY GUYS!!! So had the wrong time listed on their website. The show starts at 8:30PM NOT 9:30PM. Just wanted you all to make sure you got there at the right time.

  11. Northern Attack | Come One, Come All on August 17th, 2006 2:13 pm

    […] Kathie, your fearless leader over at Give Me My Remote, will be hosting live chats for Office fans every Thursday night starting today and continuing throughout Season Three. The party gets started tonight at 8:30 PM EDT with a possibility for some west coast action later in the evening depending on the turnout. Kathie runs with what we like to call the cool kids, and, really, who doesn’t want to be cool? […]

  12. Becky on August 17th, 2006 2:15 pm

    8:30, I’ll be there!

  13. TheNextKristin on August 17th, 2006 2:25 pm

    I’ll do my best to run back and forth between computer and TV… their not being in the same room complicates things a little, but if the party keeps going after the show it’ll be awesome!

  14. garbagethrower on August 17th, 2006 3:19 pm

    WestCoaster – will try my best to be there (thanks for staying up!)

  15. A.M. on August 17th, 2006 3:24 pm

    I registered for the east coast chat.

  16. Wendy on August 17th, 2006 4:02 pm

    GMMR, you can count on me for support!! I am a West Coaster, FYI and I would totally be up for the early chat as well since I have east coast feed and west coast feed on my satellite! 🙂

  17. Nicole on August 17th, 2006 4:37 pm

    Ooooh…this sounds like fun! I just signed up, and I’ll be there at the East Coast session. See y’all then!

  18. GMMR on August 17th, 2006 4:38 pm

    YAY you!!! PLEASE don’t laugh if I am clueless tonight 🙂

  19. samsmom on August 17th, 2006 4:49 pm

    I can’t make the west coast chat tonight, but count me in for next week.

  20. GMMR on August 17th, 2006 4:50 pm

    Thanks samsmom!! I will definitely let you know about next week. I have to figure out my schedule since I will be in LA.

  21. Loaded Teapot on August 17th, 2006 4:50 pm

    I’m in! This will be fun!

  22. jenns on August 17th, 2006 5:25 pm

    See you there!

  24. Meghan on August 17th, 2006 7:28 pm

    i registered and can’t be there this thursday, but hopefully next week!

  25. aBe on August 17th, 2006 7:38 pm

    im signed up for this chat [East Coast], where exactly are we chattin’ though? i dont get this BuddyTV joint.

  26. Amber on August 17th, 2006 7:41 pm

    Woot! Sounds like fun. Count me in!

  27. Sus on August 17th, 2006 8:10 pm

    Well. Nevermind.

    Turns out Buddytv doesn’t work with Macs.


    But I’ll still be watching The Office and I’ll be with you all in spirit.

    Hope it’s one I haven’t seen! *rubs hands together evilly*

  28. I Love The Office on August 17th, 2006 9:01 pm

    loved the chat! it was great! A little fast, but still great! Can’t wait for more in the next coming weeks!

  29. Wunderduck on August 17th, 2006 9:05 pm

    The chat was really fun. It was a little fast, though. can’t wait till next week. Is it going to be a mini-marathon?

  30. Denise (ddker) on August 17th, 2006 10:25 pm

    I had fun at the chat. Like a couple of the others said, a bit fast at times, but it was easy to follow along since it was a rerun. If it were a new episode, I’d be too glued to the TV to see what was going on to participate in the chat except during the commercials.

  31. Julie on August 17th, 2006 10:34 pm

    Oh, I forgot you will be in LA next week. I’d definitely show up for that chat. 🙂

  32. Brian on August 17th, 2006 10:48 pm

    Your innovations never cease to amaze, GMMR.

    Sorry I couldn’t check things out tonight, but it sounds like it was pretty cool. I’ll definitely try and check out future chats.

  33. Rayne on August 18th, 2006 12:13 am

    I have a mac. It worked for me.

  34. mg714 on August 18th, 2006 10:24 am

    GMMR – great chat last night. Like everyone else already said it was a little fast, but still fun. It was good that you told everyone to stick to commenting on the show rather than just repeating lines (which I was guilty of too!). I think when the new episodes start, though, I may be concentrating on the show too intensely to be able to join in the chat except during commercials! 🙂 It will be nice to chat with other fans about the show, though, while it’s going on and afterwards.

  35. Jack on August 18th, 2006 4:31 pm

    Great job with the chat. I was especially impressed at your ability to refrain from drooling over JK too much during the chat 😛

    my other thoughts got to you via email I believe 🙂

  36. Jamie on August 18th, 2006 6:11 pm

    i don’t know if you’ve seen these yet, but it’s worth taking a look

  37. gmmr on August 18th, 2006 6:16 pm

    GUYS…thanks for all the comments. I’m sorry I’ve been MIA today but it’s been a rough day. I’ll be back VERY soon.

    And yes I saw the pics and they just show that there is in fact a GOD.

    […] A special thinks to EVERYONE to came to the first ever TVj session for The Office over at It was so nice that so many of my GMMRers showed up, and I got to meet a lot of really cool Office fans. […]

    That was so much fun! If you weren’t on her live BuddyTV session – you missed out! I gave you 5 star rating! You already have 377 star points and only need to break around 900 to break into the Top 10 on the Homepage. Let’s all go vote for her and break her into the Top 10! Are you going to be doing this again?

    BTW, you can replay her sessions if you missed it at by clicking “Replay” on either of the live sessions she did:
