The Office Thursday on Give Me My Remote

This whole week has been one big Office Thursday on Give Me My Remote. There’s been so much Office news swirling around, and I’ve been trying to keep it all in check for Office Thursday, but it’s been tough. But as always, here’s the lastest happening in the word of Dunder Mifflin.

Check back throughout the day as more news trickles in.
The Office, The Merger

Supersize me Baby…
Tonight we get another supsersized episode of The Office. And much like the last time we supersized, the writers don’t disappoint. So by now I think most of you know what’s going down on “The Merger”. The Stamford employees are merging with the Scranton branch, and they get their first taste of Michael Scott. Jim and Pam lay eyes on each other for the first time since Casino Night, and well…it’s great to see these two in the same office again.

Clips from tonight’s show are available at Yahoo! TV and But I think you should summon all your strength and try to hold out for a few more hours. I know, I know, it’s tough, but just think…it will make watching the show that much more fun.

I was lucky enough to get an advanced screener this week, so click here for my take on “The Merger”.

LIVE “Office” Chat TONIGHT…
Give Me My Remote As always, I will be hosting a LIVE Office chat over at for those of us on the East Coast. Log on and watch the show with other Officianados. Believe me, it’s so much more fun to watch the show with other Office addicts. And when we are done watching the show, we’re all going to head over to to hang with Jenna Fischer! (Schedule BuddyTV chat reminder)

Blogging with Jenna Fischer…

Jenna Fischer, The Office Jenna Fischer knows how to blog. She does it all the time on MySpace. But tonight she’s going to change it up a bit and live blog over at right after the East Coast airing of The Office. Make sure you jump online around 9:20/8:20c (that’s 6:20pm for you left coast kids) and chat with Fancy New Beesly. The NBC live blogging events tend to be a little crazy, so be patient with Jenna as I’m sure she is going to get to as many questions as she can. (The Office at
And now a word from Kate Flannery…
Kate Flannery, The Office Our favorite drunken red-head is back with another installment of her weekly Office blog. Get the inside scoop on The Merger, and find out which famous star was awestruck meeting Kate? (Kate’s Blog)

The Men of The Office are Taking on The World…
BJ Novak and Rainn Wilson, The Office And I for one am not complaining. Seems at the Scranton boys are everywhere these days. In case you missed it, check it out: The Men of The Office in GQ; John Krasinski in People Magazine, Rainn Wilson on the cover of Geek Magazine, John Krasinski and The Shins in Filter Magazine. Our boys are blowing up big time! But let’s face it…as much as we love John, BJ and Rainn where are our other men? Roy, Kevin, Stanley, Creed, Toby…come on – we are equal opportunity Dunder Mifflinites!

John Krasinski in NYC Tonight…
John Krasinski, The Office JKras will be taking part in a Jest Fest 06, a celebration of the 10th Anniversary of David Foster Wallace’s INFINITE JEST at the Used Book Cafe in NYC tonight. Krasinski will be joined by Todd Hanson (The Onion), Lev Grossman (Time Magazine), and Laura Miller (Salon) in reading from and talking about the book. Audience participation strongly encouraged! And ladies, try to keep your inner fangirls in control tonight. Oh, and if you are going and want to take pics for GMMR I’d love it!

Mindy & Angela Chit Chat…
Mindy Kaling and Angela Kinsey, The OfficeMindy Kaling and Angela Kinsey were out working hard to promote the show this week. The spent last Tuesday doing a bunch of interviews for NBC. Check out this clip from an interview they did with an NBC affiliate in Dallas. And can I just say that I am always floored at how different these ladies look in real life?! Smokin’ ladies…smokin’. And on that note, I also find it interesting how they alter their voices so much to fit with their character. Mindy Kaling certaintly doesn’t have the Kelly Kappor shrill that we are used to, and Angela’s Texas accent just wouldn’t work for Ms. Martin.
Jenna and James on LoveLine…
Jenna Fischer (The Office) and James Gunn (SLiTHER)Jenna Fischer and her red hot, red hat wearing husband James Gunn were guest on last night’s Loveline. Did anyone catch it? I’m sure it was some pretty funny stuff. Hopefully the show will be posted on the Loveline website over the next few days. Make sure to check back in a few days to see listen.

Brian Baumgartner, The OfficeUPDATE: GMMR’s friends over at TV with MeeVee scored a short interview with Brian Baumgartner!! Yay…you know how I love Kevin!! Brian gives mad love to the websites that are dedicated to the show – he definitely appreciates the fans, and we appreciate him.
Show Your Office Love…
A few new Office-inspired t-shirts and more have been added to the GMMR Store. By popular demand I’ve added not one by TWO “Here Comes Treble” designs for all you Andy lovers out there. And give Mr. Halpert a lending hand by letting him you know who he should give his heart too…are you on Team Karen or Team Pam (and I threw in a Team Beesly one in there too). Me? I’m on Team Halpert (but I think you know where my loyalties lie)

    I’m on everyone’s team. I want Karen to be happy…just not with Jim. 😉 She and Roy should get together. Then they could all be one happy Office family.

    Aw, the Team Halpert and the Team Beesly shirts are holding sleeves!

    Can I second the non-fangirlness for those who attend the reading tonight. Yes, it’s JK, yes he’s on the office, but really if that’s the only reason to attend, then this probably isn’t the event to attend. It’s a book reading. And Infinite Jest is a very long book that has endnotes. It’s that kind of a book reading. I may just have to bring the camera out for you, Kath. I mean, you invited me to RR, it’s the least I can do.

    Didn’t notice that Becky how sweet… very nervous about tonight… i’m sweatin like a whore in church.

    In a perfect world there would be enough Jims to go around.

  6. Angelica on November 16th, 2006 5:47 pm

    I love the Beesly/Halpert shirts on one side (as if holding hands) and the Karen shirt on the other side of the page. Awesome 😉

  7. GMMR on November 16th, 2006 5:49 pm

    Yeah, sorry I couldn’t resist. It’s not that I am hating on Karen, but she just needs to go find someone else. Jim is taken….or he should be.

    Aww, the shirts holding sleeves is too cute =]

    Tonight’s episode is going to be fantastic. I can’t wait!

    I went to the bookstore and met John!!! We were standing near him and just went up to him. He was so nice. He is also even more good looking in person, and quiet the stylish dresser!
