  1. Woah, that’s everybody! They should do a few dvd commentaries while they have them all together. Wish I lived closer…

  2. I got tickets, so stoked!
    Does the cast spend any time signing autographs before or after the event?

  3. OMG! What happened! Like P&R but you cannot compare it to THE OFFICE. What a disappointment! I was going to watch it if they were going to stream over the Internet because I live in NYC.

  4. At first I thought I read “The Office was cancelled”, as in the show not the panel, thinking since it wasn’t April Fools’ Day it couldn’t be a joke. Guess I still need to learn how to read closely.

  5. That’s really weird. I wonder what happened? Wouldn’t they know before they made that commitment what their production schedule was? Very mysterious indeed.

  6. I remember recently reading Watch With Kristin’s Spoiler Chat and they asked Ed about what was coming up on the show, and he said that they weren’t very far ahead with the filming to where we are now in the season, so I’m thinking maybe they’re behind and can’t afford to lose a day’s filming.

  7. Angela Kinsey Tweeted that they are filming and won’t be able to attend. They must have gotten behind in their filming schedule.

  8. I am sure their production time is precious, but how could the production team do something like this to so many of their fans? Is one (or so) hour of time at a panel discussion such a terrible sacrifice? I’ve had to cancel so many things today, and about $180 of it is non-refundable. Instead of getting things done at work today, I went home early too sick over this news to get anything accomplished there. My one big dream was to see (and possibly meet) Ed Helms, and I might never get the opportunity again.
