THE OFFICE Thursday on Give Me My Remote (Update)
November 1, 2007 by Kath Skerry
It’s Thursday…and look at this, we’ve got another new episode of THE OFFICE. Gotta love that. Just a few short news items to catch up on this week. I’m looking forward to watching tonight’s episode with the BuddyTV crew as I missed last week’s ep because of the World Series (not that I’m complaining) but I did miss watching along with everyone. If you’re online tonight you should join us.
Updates: Kate’s blog, new E! videos and a new radio interview with B.J. Novak
Tonight on The Office….
‘Branch Wars’ | 9pm on NBC
Karen’s return to Scranton causes a ruckus when she courts Stanley to relocate, prompting Michael to go on the offensive and recruit Jim in his battle. Elsewhere, a “Finer Things Club” riles the employees. (Promo #1)
B.J. Novak on On-Air with Ryan Seacrest…
Ryan Seacrest interviewed B.J. Novak on his morning radio show this morning. Listen to the broadcast and here B.J. talk about how Ryan became Michael’s boss, the rumors of the spin-off and more. (Listen now)
LIVE Office Chat Tonight…
Time: 8:30pm EST. Place: BuddyTV.com Yup, our crew will once again be gathering to watch THE OFFICE together tonight. If you’d like to join us, we’d love to have you. Hope to see you guys there tonight. Set a reminder now! (GMMR’s/THE OFFICE TVj sessions @ Buddy TV)
The Office on E!…
E!’s Kristin Dos Santos spent a day on set while they were filming this week’s episode. She got to talk to Steve, Rainn, John, Rashida and even this week’s guest direct, Joss Whedon. There will be more videos from E!’s set visit later today, and I’ll be sure to update this post once they are launched. A little birdie told me that today’s video might feature a little more of my boy John Krasinski, so ladies you’ll want to check back soon. Here are the videos posted so far: (Steve & Rainn | John & Rashida | Joss Whedon | Steve, Rainn, John, Joss & Rashida- NEW!)
From the Desk of Meredith Palmer…
When I first updated earlier today Kate’s TV Guide blog wasn’t yet live. But I’m happy to report that it is now and that it’s filled with her love of all things Scranton…and Office fans. Make sure you check it out and be sure to leave Kate a comment, because I know she reads them all. (Read Kate’s Blog)
The Office Convention…
It still pains me to know that I missed such an amazing event. I’m glad to know that so many of you had such a wonderful experience. And because The Office fans are the best, even those of us who weren’t able to attend got to witness some of the best moments from the convention. NBC.com has a bunch of videos and pics, as does the Office LJ community. But look no further than the ultimate Office blog, OfficeTally.com to find anything and everything you want to know about what went down in Scranton. (Office Tally’s convention coverage)
Do You Miss Roy?
Well I can’t say that I miss Roy Anderson, but I certainly miss seeing David Denman on a weekly basis. Just a reminder that David will be guesting on tonight’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”. So set the TiVos and watch Grey’s tonight…only after you’ve watched The Office of course. And here’s to hoping that we see Roy back sometime in the future (as long as he’s not messing with Jim and Pam I’d love to see him around).
In Case You Missed It…
- There have been a few OFFICE related posts this week, and in case you missed it I wanted to remind you that there are reports that NBC is considering an OFFICE spin-off. Although this story has had a lot of buzz this week, it’s not the first time we’re hearing of it. NBC President and Office producer, Ben Silverman, made mention of this premise in the past. It looks like it could be happening – I guess we’ll wait and see.
- The boyfriend has a a few things going on this week. First, the DVD release of LICENSE TO WED was this week. I, of course, bought it the day it was released, but then received a copy of it in the mail as well – not sure who sent it to me because there was no note. But thanks to the anonymous gifter from Los Angeles…that was really sweet of you. Also John Krasinski’s new Gap ad was revealed this week and he looks all kinds of warm and cozy. And finally, there were rumors swirling that John Krasinski would be hosting SNL in December. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I checked with John’s team and I can confirm that he will not be hosting later this year. Fingers crossed for April, perhaps around the time of the release of ‘Leatherheads’. And that’s all the JKras news I have for you today. Still keeping hope alive that he and B.J. come home for the holidays and I get to see them kickin’ around town. (I don’t have the cajones to ask for an interview on their Thanksgiving break but if I see them out and about I’ll be sure to try to get some scoop)
