Yay for Ricky Gervais on the Daily Show! He and Jon interact so well together, those interviews are always a treat.
Gay Witch Hunt was the worst ep this season. Sheesh.
Just a heads up: The article “‘Office’ makes pitch to viewers: Watch and buy” contains some spoilers about the Christmas episode. I got a few sentences in and closed that tab as quickly as I could.
Those Watchie Awards were great, lots of Office mentions and 3 (that I counted) links to OfficeTally. Way to go!
And Gay Witch Hunt is currently my 2nd favorite episode of the season so far, behind Branch Closing. But what are they doing making a best episode list before the Christmas episode airs?
Thanks, HSP, I will put a spoiler tag on that one. Sorry about that!
Ricky Gervais has been on the Daily Show before. It was sometime this past year and he was promoting a book that he wrote.
Hey I just saw that The Office was honored by AFI as one of the top television programs of the year!! Here’s their website that lists all of the honorees.
I gotta say I am really disappointed with this product placement shit. If the people who make the show don’t respect it enough to include material solely on its own merit, how do they expect the audience to think?
