New supersized Office airing Nov. 16

From the NBC press release:

NBC will return the Emmy Award-nominated “Scrubs” and move freshman comedy “30 Rock” to Thursday nights beginning November 30 to form a new two-hour 8-10 p.m. (ET) comedy block with “My Name Is Earl” and “The Office.” The change will follow a special super-sized night of comedy two weeks earlier on Thursday, November 16, with three 40-minute episodes of “My Name Is Earl,” “The Office” and “30 Rock.”

No information yet on a title or synopsis of the Nov. 16th episode, but when I hear, I will be sure to post it!

  1. That is the best news ever! So much to be excited about – supersized Office, the return of Scrubs (!) and finally, FINALLY a kickass must see tv lineup on NBC! I can’t wait! Thanks for the info.

  2. That’s just a great line-up all together. And that was very nice of them to give us a super-sized episode without even petitioning for it. It’s like they’re finally starting to get us.

  3. I cannot begin to express the happiness I feel, knowing that the craptacular Deal or No Deal will no longer taint my Thursday night TV watching!!!

    …and, Yay!!! I love Scrubs!!!

    And, WHOOPIEEE!!! Super sizing!!!

    This is all such great news!!!

    And, yes!!!! I love exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Possible spoiler alert!!!

    There was talk a while back of an episode called “The Merger”. Sounds like this could be it.

  5. wait, so what time will the office be playing? at 8:30? (9:30 eastern time) like, as in the same time as grey’s anatomy? my two shows can’t air at the same time!

  6. Hey Anti-Soccermom…I could not agree more regarding Deal or No Deal. It will be nice to get it out of the Thursday night line-up.

    Thursday night will be must-see TV again.

  7. Let’s just all remember the greatness that was the last super-sized Office, Casino Night. Tanster, look what you started? We thank you thank you thank you for beginning such an awesome trend!

  8. Thanks Dan!!!

    I wonder who actually watches that show? Howie Mandell groupies I guess.

    Geez. That make me sad just typing it!


    Is it bad that I’m practically counting down the hours till the next show every weeK? I’m a little sad there’s no [new] show this week…

    And yeah, judging by how kickass “Casino Night” was, this one should be fabulous. I can’t wait.

  10. This could very well be the coolest thing NBC has ever done. I am so excited! And as excited as I am about about The Office being extended for at least one episode, I’m even more excited that [Scrubs] is coming back to TV early! And I wasn’t able to watch 30 Rock on Wednesdays, so maybe now it will be more easy to watch!

  11. NBC really wants their viewers huh. hehe I mean they’re #4 right?

    Great news for the office, I’m excited to see the episode thats airing that night. WOOHOO
