The Office Thursdays on

So I know it’s Thursday and you all have been waiting patiently for the Office Thursday at Give Me My Remote update. Unfortunately I am traveling on business today and tomorrow and haven’t had much time to spend on my computer. And it’s a beautiful day here in NYC so you’ll forgive me if I want to get outside while I can 🙂

So here’s the miniest of all mini Office Thursdays.

Tonight’s episode (8:30/7:30c on NBC)….
Branch Closing”

When Jan tells Michael that the Scranton Branch will be shutting down, Michael strives to keep his staff’s spirits up. Meanwhile, everyone privately begins to envision how their lives will change in the aftermath. Both Brian Baumgartner and Jenna Fischer has said this is the best episode yet! I guess we’ll see in just a few hours. (Yahoo Clips)

Producer’s Cut of “Branch Closing”…
nbc_thoffice.gif As a special treat to us all, will be streaming a producer’s cut version of tonight’s episode starting at 9pm PT (so that’s midnight to us here on the East Coast). The longer version will show the scenes that didn’t make it into the regular 30 minute broadcast ep. Looks like it’s going to be a late night for GMMR. (
From the desk of Meredith Palmer…
Meredith Palmer (Kate Flannery) Kate Flannery is the resident Office blogger at TV Guide. In this week’s installment we get a little info on some of the perks that come with being on a hit TV show. From the dresses, to the awards, to hearing Katie Holmes speak? Anyway, make sure you check out her new blog update and leave a comment to show her the love. (Read Kate’s Blog)

Post-ep Blogging with Greg Daniels…
office_100x100.gif Executive producer Greg Daniels will be live blogging after the East Coast airing of the show over at Last time he blogged after the show it was for the season premiere, so I’m expecting big things tonight! You can head over there now and leave a question for Greg. (

Speaking of LIVE chatting…
buddytv_100x100.gif I’m looking forward to watching tonight’s episode with all of you over at As always, we will be chatting away starting at 8pm EST and throughout the show. Click here to set a reminder!

Jenna on Letterman Tonight….
Jenna_flower_100x100.jpg Don’t forget to check out Jenna Fischer on David Letterman tonight!! She’s going to be on with Keifer Sutherland. Maybe they can figure out a 24/Office crossover. Jenna also taped her appearance on The Rachel Ray Show this morning, and I was there. Check back a little later and I’ll share all the fun details!!

John Krasinski is EVERYWHERE….
John Krasinski as Jim Halpert Well, I guess he’s not everywhere, because I look around and it’s just me in this big old hotel room. But, John seems to be popping up in pics all over this great internet of ours. I’m not going to post the pics here because they aren’t mind to share, but I’ll certainly tell you where to go to see them.

First up – there were some ‘razi’esque photos taken of John and Rashida Jones strolling down the streets of Beverly Hills. Not sure when they were taken, but they did mention something about an “early morning stroll”. Let’s just hope it wasn’t too early if you know what I mean. And based on his clenched fists, I don’t think John was too pleased about being photographed. (Check out the pics)

MEAN Magazine has posted what I believe to be the HOTTEST John Krasinski photos I have EVER seen. MEAN Magazine is on stands now (althought I can’t find it anywhere in NYC). Make sure you check it out. Or just click here to see the pics of John.

Rumor has it that John will appear on tomorrow’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I guess Ellen is doing a karaoke based show and John will be singing his little heart out. I heard he dedicates a song to me, aw he’s so cute.

    I think the reason there’s a paprazzi pic of krasinski is b/c they wanted rashida. I mean she hangs around that group of youngsters (paris,mary-kate,nicole richie) and let’s not forget she’s the daughter of Qunicy Jones and Peggy Lipton. Those are heavy hitters right there.

  5. Melissa on November 9th, 2006 8:06 pm

  7. Jim Mosby on November 9th, 2006 8:16 pm

    Yea, Jim Mosby is jealous of you for getting to meet Jenna today. That simple. 🙂

  8. John D'arc on November 9th, 2006 8:35 pm

    9ET! 9ET! Kate confirmed it, I think!

  9. GeekCheek on November 9th, 2006 8:42 pm

    Nope, it’s 9PT–there is no way that they would stream the episode online without it first airing on the West coast. They want those ratings. LiveBlogging is one thing, but I think that the whole point is to give the people who watch the show–and contribute to the ratings–a bonus for being loyal to the show.

    Awww…..this was my favorite ever. I’m kinda rooting for Rashida now. Fancy New Beesley should have taken it while up for grabs!

  16. Mel aka foggy on November 10th, 2006 9:07 am

    Blech. I stayed up till 2:30 in the morning trying to get that producer’s cut to work, and then when it finally loaded properly, I got a message saying the ep was not available in my area. Tried again this morning – same thing. Has anyone put it on youtube yet?

  17. Melissa on November 10th, 2006 9:26 am

    Youtube has the promo now for the merger:

  18. TheNextKristin on November 14th, 2006 2:01 pm

    That last picture of J-Kras? LOVE IT.

    He was fantastic on Ellen too – it was just a quick little segment but I loved it. I hope it’s on Youtube.
