The Office moves up an hour in the fall

NBC announced its new fall schedule today during the “upfronts” at Radio City Music Hall.

The Office will be airing an hour earlier, moving from 9:30pm to 8:30pm.

Here is the new Thursday lineup:

THURSDAY
8-8:30 p.m. “My Name Is Earl” (new time)
8:30-9 p.m. “The Office” (new time)
9-10 p.m. “STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP”
10-11 p.m. “ER”/(“THE BLACK DONNELLYS” in January 2007)

One less hour to wait! That’s good.

But I wonder if this means that Season 3 storylines will have to be tamer due to the move to “family hour.” Could an episode like Sexual Harassment (the only Office episode ever to earn the “viewer discretion advised” warning) air in the 8:30 slot?
