The Office is over, done. No, honestly, it is: here’s the proof. It’s completely finished. Its legacy will be as a show that came from very humble beginnings – a remake of a hit UK sitcom (The Office) that was aired as a mid-season replacement. In Us network television, beginnings don’t get much more humble than that. From there, however, the show became something much bigger, emerging and engulfing the shadow that it was created under – the shadow of the initially superior British sitcom – and eventually proving itself superior.
It is odd to compare the Us and UK versions of The Office, because aside from some first season plotlines, they are completely different. The Office Us (as it is known in the UK) found itself in its second season when it stopped trying to emulate the tone and pitch of the UK version. Sure, the first season had »

The series finale of The Office aired this week, and we're all pretty sad to say goodbye to the Dunder Mifflin gang. After nine seasons, they've all changed a lot, but no one's appearance has been altered more than that of Jim (John Krasinski). We got to reminiscing about when Jim first stole our hearts as the boy with the baby face and the floppy hair. Though he's grown out of his boyish looks, Jim's 'do has managed to evolve over the years. Don't believe us? Click through and prepare to be dazzled by the wonder that is his floppy hair.

The project is from executive producer Ben Silverman (The Office, The Biggest Loser) through his Electus multimedia studio.
Here’s the pitch: “Pedro and Maria are two opposites cut from the same cloth caught in the trap of forbidden love. He is a second generation Dominican from the mean streets of Washington Heights. She is »

Before the series finale of "The Office" on Thursday night, NBC took a look back at the show's nine-season run with a special, "The Office Retrospective," and fans got a look at John Krasinksi and Jenna Fischer's audition for the roles of Jim and Pam from a decade ago.
“What are you copying right now? What is that?” Krasinski as Jim says in the video. “I’m working. I don’t know if you’re working, but I have work to do," Fischer retorts as Pam.
“As soon as Jenna walked in, she was exactly what I imagined the part to be. I remember very vividly, I turned to her and said, ‘Just so you know, you’re gonna get the part,’" Krasinksi remembered. "And she’s like,‘That’s so crazy, ‘cause I thought you’re gonna get the part.’”
Fischer said she knew she had chemistry with »

John Krasinski is a perfect human being, and here are 20 reasons why:
1. He gifted us with one of the most realistic yet fairytale-like TV romances (all hail Jam!)
"I bought the boat tickets the day I saw that YouTube video. I knew we'd need a backup plan. The boat was actually plan C. The church was plan B. And plan A was marring her a long, long time ago. Pretty much the day I met her."
2. But that's not the only thing that made Jim Halpert God's gift to mankind.
3. He's also a spectacular pranksman in real life:
4. He doesn't wait till Movember.
For all those non-beard lovers out there, how about this??? twitter.com/johnkrasinski/…

Last night’s series finale of The Office was way up in the ratings — meaning that a bunch of people who haven’t been viewing the daily happenings of Dunder Mifflin tuned back in to see Pam, Jim, Dwight — and yes, even Michael — one last time.
This morning at Entertainment Weekly Headquarters we naturally all had opinions about what worked and what didn’t in the farewell episode of the long-running sitcom. Was it a fitting end for America’s favorite paper company? Over email this morning, Jeff Labrecque and Erin Strecker hashed out the supersized episode — Jeff didn’t »

The series finale of "The Office" saw a lot of happy moments. Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) made a surprise return, Erin (Ellie Kemper) found her birth parents, and Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela (Angela Kinsey) finally tied the knot.
NBC also got something out of the deal: "The Office" series finale brought in approximately 5.4 million viewers on Thursday night, scoring a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demo.
Although once upon a time the series was averaging 9 million viewers, the "Office" finale saw season high ratings, with the Season 9 premiere bringing in only 2.1 million viewers.
Earlier this month, Brian Baumgartner (Kevin) told The Huffington Post that he thought the "Office" series finale was "the greatest episode of television" ever.
"I know that's a bold statement, but the reason I say that is because there was a plan for the end of the show for eight years," he continued. "Greg [Daniels] had an idea »

After nine seasons, the cast of "The Office" said goodbye to the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company one last time.
Following the series finale on NBC on Thursday night (read what happened on the last episode!), many of the show's stars took to Twitter to thank their fans and reflect back on their hit series.
Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute): "Grab your beet salads, reams of paper, bobbleheads, Jello molds & Kleenexes folks. It's time for the Office Finale!... Well, with The Office ending I guess I finally have time to work on my golf game. Thank you to the ...

That's a wrap for Dunder Mifflin. How are all you Office fans holding up? Scranton left on a high note, with 5.4 million people tuning in to say goodbye, and achieving its best demo ratings since January 2012. There's obviously a lot to cover after an episode that ran a supersize hour and 15 minutes, so before we start blubbering again, let's just get to highlighting the best moments from the series finale of The Office: 1. Best Boss Ever: Who are we kidding? We can't make it any farther without shouting: Michael Scott returns! We hoped, we prayed, we wished...and when Jim (John Krasinski) told Dwight (Rainn Wilson) right before the wedding ceremony about how he, according to Schrute traditions, »
Well, that didn’t take long. NBC has announced that season nine of The Office will be arriving on Blu-Ray on August 13th. Longtime fans of the show are currently in mourning, as the series finale aired last night, but news of the upcoming Blu-Ray release should soften the blow a bit. Or maybe not.
Yes, The Office is now gone and it’s a sad day ineed. Despite the show going downhill when Steve Carell departed, it’s still pretty upsetting that it’s over and as a longtime fan, I’m definitely sad to see it go. Even in its later seasons, where it wasn’t as funny, it still remained one of my favorite things on TV and the series finale last night was everything I could have hoped for. It was far from the funniest episode of the show but it did what it needed to »

Much like the rest of us, John Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt said goodbye to The Office on Thursday night. The couple was spotted attending a screening of the series finale in Los Angeles. Krasinski, who played Jim on the popular NBC show, took to Twitter to share his feelings with fans. "So this is it," he wrote. "There's truly nothing I can say to tell you all how much your love and support of this show has meant. Thank you...thank you!" No, John. (As well as all the other folks at Dunder Mifflin.) Thank you. (E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.) »
Last night, "The Office" aired its final episode after a long 9 year run. The episode, simply titled "Finale", took us on an hour long journey of what the Dunder Mifflin crew was up to and gave us some closure on many of the characters that we've grown to love during the past decade. The show was never the same after Steve Carell's departure from the series just over two years ago and viewership was on a steady decline. It was finally decided that the series was to be ended after the 2012-2013 season. If you are not familiar with the series as a whole, or have just stopped watching the past few seasons, the premise of the show revolves »

The series finale of ‘The Office’ aired on May 16 and the cast took to Twitter during and after the episode to share their emotional thoughts!
It’s over and it’s sad! The Office came to an end and the cast is coming to terms with the end to a nine season run. It was awesome seeing Steve Carell come back on the show and stars from the show gave their fans one last thought.
‘The Office’ Tweets Their Goodbyes’
It was sad to see it all just stop but all good things must come to an end. Here’s what the stars of the show thought about the finale and the loyal fans.
John Krasinski: “So this is it. There’s truly nothing I can say to tell you all how much your love and support of this show has meant. Thank you … thank you!”
Steve Carell: “Thank You Scranton. »

Fans of The Office were hoping for one last visit from Michael Scott, and they got their wish with an appearance that was well set up and hilarious. The biggest fear for fans of Scott were that he either would not appear at all, or that his appearance would amount to a wink and you [...]

Last night's series finale of The Office went for every possible moment of sentimentality. Weddings, reunions, good-byes — these are all weepy enough occasions as is! Crammed into a finale, with every character ladling on the teary platitudes, it was a surprisingly warm and fuzzy farewell for a show that once trafficked in awkwardness, inappropriateness, and deep, deep cringing. But the best moments of the finale were the ones that brought back Steve Carell as Michael Scott. Michael wasn't in a ton of scenes in the episode, but his return made the show feel complete. Here's all the Michael you missed, including the sweetest "that's what she said" of all time. »
