There is no episode of The Office tonight, but …

A reminder that there is no new episode of ‘The Office’ tonight, due to the vice presidential debate.

That doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun, though. Stay tuned …


  1. What?!? Uggg. This totally ruined my day. I was looking forward to this all week:( I can’t even vote yet.

  2. ah i just realized that about an hour ago!!! :(
    can’t wait to see what fun is in store for us though :)

  3. As a political science major (and history minor), I don’t think I have ever disliked politics so much before!

  4. That is so maddening! They get us all excited from last week, and then they take it away? Lord, Beer me strength…to wait another week.

  5. Man, I didn’t know about this until a few hours ago, too. I knew the VP debate was tonight, but since I’m on the West Coast, I didn’t realize it would conflict with The Office.

  6. I thoroughly hate politics right now. I’ll be staying tuned, watching my favorite episodes from Season 4 over and over again, and pretending that NBC doesn’t hate millions of viewers.

  7. In light of the fact that:

    a)I can’t view ANY of the NBC videos(i.e. no Mindy interview, no deleted scenes – that tip doesn’t work for me), and
    b) There is no Office episode to look forward to today…

    I could totally use some funtivities right about now!

  8. The Office > Presidential Debates

    Give the people what they REALLY want, NBC!!

  9. nooo I have been thinking all day that there was a new episode!!!!!!! gahh that’s the worst, esp. since i live in canada, so…yeah. dang it! but I agree, funtivities would def. help :)

  10. Thank God for DVR’s. I’ve watched “Weight Loss” at least 10 times now. lol I will stay tuned. Tanster never disappoints. ;)

  11. Whether they show the episode or not, I’m going to write in “Michael Scott” and “Dwight Shrute” on my absentee ballot, so they might as well just show the episode.

    (Kidding, I vote, but I wish they’d show The Office instead! Pam is Jimgaged!)

  12. Emma, so true. And think of how amazing it would be if the debate was Schrute v. Biden.

  13. This isn’t exactly recent news…I noticed long ago that the show would skip a week. Business Ethics has been listed as airing on October 9 for weeks now!

    Sorry it ruined everyone’s day…luckily I noticed it awhile back, so it’s had time to sink in :/

  14. I noticed last night while scrolling through the schedule of upcoming shows on my DVR.

    But looking forward to the upcoming “funtivities”!

  15. i totally forgot.
    damn it. i could’ve worked tonight.
    oh well. there’s still some comedy on tonight.

  16. Imagine how excited we’d be if John McCain had stayed with the VP running mate he announceed to Jon Stewart a few months ago. Then at least we’d have DaWight Schrute to look forward to.

    Register and vote.

    Together we shall prevail!

  17. I have been upset about this all week. All I want is to see what happens next! But can I? NO.

  18. They could at least release it on the internet… :(

    I was looking forward to the Vice Presidential Debate – but not if it’s taking up The Office’s timeslot.

  19. Is it bad that I’m watching the debate to see if/how many times Biden mentions Scranton. (answer-so far 2 times!)

  20. Fact; Sad but true, my wife and I were looking forward to a new Office all week….#@$%!

    Waiting for months and months…what’s another week?

    Crap! Hearing Biden mention Scranton was a bit of a fix.

  21. I’m glad there was no new office episode. I had labs at school from 5:30-11:30 so I would have missed it anyways!

  22. “betterthannot”

    That was perfect, “f”

    Only a real fan remembers that famous line from Dwight.
