TV’s Top Writers Switch Shows

Would would happen if the writers of THE OFFICE infiltrated the town of Dillon, Texas? What about if Bart Simpson took over as Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin-Scranton (well we might not notice a difference). Will the pretty people on Gossip Girl’s Upper East Side stay pretty if they were taken over by UGLY BETTY? And would a world where THE DAILY SHOW writers wrote all of our TV really be all the great (probably).

New York Magazine had writers from some of today’s top shows switch it up and write the final episodes of the seasons for other hot shows on TV today. Hey, at least we’re getting season finales despite the WGA strike.

THE OFFICE from the writers of The Simpsons
By Daniel Chun, Carolyn Omine, Matt Selman, and Matt Warburton
The OfficeEPISODE 9: “Flu Season”
Phyllis shows up on the day of the Mardi Gras party with a runny nose. Dwight becomes paranoid about infection, but Michael insists the party must go on—he has hired a local zydeco band, the Jambalaya Jammers. Meanwhile, Jim and Pam worry that they get along so well that other couples don’t want to hang out with them. Have they become “that couple”? (continue reading)

GOSSIP GIRL from the writers of Ugly Betty
By Veronica Becker and Sarah Kuscerka
Gossip GirlEPISODE 15: “Saved?”
Blair’s legging-clad lemmings all officially defect to Jenny’s clique, and Blair’s popularity—like her virginity—can’t be resurrected. When her ex won’t forgive her, B. has to find a new guy, someone even more popular than Nate … Jesus. Looks like the only way for Blair to wipe her slate clean is to be born again—literally. Blair’s newfound religion crucifies her sense of style as she trades Imitation of Christ for the real thing. (continue reading)

On the top bunk of the break room, Alex and Lexie have a hot three-way with Rebecca (Jane Doe), who has come back … again. On the bottom bunk, George has sex with Cristina.
