With the petition to supersize The Office series finale in full swing, I’ve been thinking about how NBC could fit extra Office goodness into the schedule.
As of today, March 30, there are currently six episodes that haven’t aired:
And as of today, March 30, there are currently seven Thursdays leading up to the finale on May 16:
- April 4
- April 11
- April 18
- April 25
- May 2
- May 9
- May 16
Assuming NBC grants Greg Daniels and team extra time for the series finale, one scenario would be to extend the finale to two hours, but air each hour on separate Thursdays:
- April 4: Promos
- April 11: Stairmageddon
- April 18: Episode 20
- April 25: Episode 21
- May 2: Episodes 22-23 (1 hour)
- May 9: Episodes 24-25, Finale Part 1 (1 hour)
- May 16: Episodes 26-27, Finale Part 2 (1 hour)
This way, NBC could keep its schedule of Hannibal intact, which premieres on April 4 at 10pm.
Do you guys have other ideas on how this could go?
