Steve Carell’s SNL monologue includes ‘The Office’ mini-reunion

During his Saturday Night Live monologue last night, guest host Steve Carell was interrupted by his ‘The Office’ castmates Ellie Kemper, Jenna Fischer, and Ed Helms, asking for a re-boot of the show!

Ellie: People would really love to see an Office reboot. Especially me. ‘Cause I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve!

Ed: I just don’t think you understand how much money we’re talking about. Like you wouldn’t have to do all those sad movies anymore.

Jenna: Do you remember the last words that Pam secretly whispered to Michael as she left for Denver? She said, “Steve, don’t be a dick. Do the reboot.”

Even Steve’s real-life wife, Nancy, got in on the act, gently prodding Steve with, “we don’t really need to you to hang around any more.”

Steve then asked the crowd, “Do you guys want to see an Office reboot? Is that what’s going on here?” to predictably thunderous applause.

He ended the monologue with, “I’m proud to announce officially that… we have a great show tonight! Ella May is here, so stick around, and we’ll be right back.”

Listening to the SNL band play out the segment with ‘The Office’ theme song seriously brought a tear to my eye.

Were any of you there? Was it like total pandemonium?

Watch The Office on Comedy Central starting January 15

The Office on Comedy Central

Remember when you could catch episodes of The Office on regular ol’ broadcast TV?

Me either. That’s because it’s been years since it was possible. (I think the last time was 2010 on TBS? Correct me, Tallyheads, if I’m wrong.)

But now, thanks to Comedy Central, you can watch original episodes of The Office, starting January 15.

Five-time Emmy® Award-winning sitcom The Office clocks in for work at Comedy Central starting on January 15, 2018 with an all-day Office marathon. The #1 brand in comedy has acquired all nine seasons of the instant-classic comedy series that ran for nine seasons on NBC from 2005 to 2013. Select episodes will be available to stream on cc.com and the CC App.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, YES. (That’s what she said.)

The Office revival coming to NBC in 2018?

According to TVLine, a revival of our beloved show The Office is in the works for NBC’s 2018-2019 season:

The revival would once again be set at Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton, PA., branch, and feature a mix of new and old cast members. Steve Carell, who starred as the branch’s regional manager, Michael Scott, for seven of the comedy’s nine seasons, will not be involved in the new series. The search for a new RM/boss is said to be already underway.

What do you guys think of this news? Are you excited because it’s like a long book that you never want to end, like Harry Potter? Or are you dismayed because it’s your worst fear, multiplied by infinity?

Back in the early days of OfficeTally, I used to put together Tally posts on the weekend, which would list that week’s most interesting articles.

Given this is the final week of The Office, it seemed right to bring back the Tally.

One last time.
