The top-indexing programs in the $100,000 category through January were NBC’s “The Office” (138), ABC’s “Boston Legal” (135), NBC’s “The Apprentice” (132) and rookie dramas “Brothers & Sisters” on ABC and “Studio 60” on NBC (both 131).

Melora Hardin talks Office chemistry

SPOILER WARNING! Article and subsequent comments will contain spoilers.

The Boston Herald talks to Melora Hardin about Jan’s chemistry with Michael:

“She’s a very complicated, multilayered, conflicted and flawed woman who’s been fighting really hard in a man’s world for a really long time,” she said. “She’s gotten a really crusty, cold, hard exterior. But she has a soft, gooey center, and Michael sees that and he goes right into that and she responds to that.”
