OfficeTally’s impact on The Office: the Mashable interview

As part of the series Tales of the Early Internet, I was delighted to be interviewed by Mashable about OfficeTally’s impact on the Office.

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 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?
