A single-camera, mockumentary-style comedy following the employees of a paper company in Scranton, Pa.? When the American adaptation of the critically beloved British series The Office debuted on NBC in March 2005, it was a far stretch from the network's glossy, multi-camera powerhouses, like Friends and Will & Grace. Nine seasons and countless "that's what she saids" later, the Scranton party will stop on Thursday, May 16 at 9/8c on NBC.
TVGuide.com spoke to stars Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly-Halpert), Angela Kinsey (Angela Martin), Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez), Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer), Ellie Kemper (Erin Hannon), Jake Lacy (Pete Campbell), producer and director Ken Kwapis, and executive producers Greg Daniels, Ben Silverman and Mike Schur about The Office's long, strange trip from British underground hit to America's favorite workplace. This is the first in a...
Scandal hit a series high Thursday with its reveal of the mole.
The drama drew 8.9 million viewers and a 3.2 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, up six-tenths from last week. Lead-in Grey's Anatomy (8.6 million, 2.9) was down ...

Few things bring more pleasure than watching a deservedly hit comedy firing on all cylinders. Such is the case with this week's rollicking The Big Bang Theory (Thursday, 8/7c on CBS), which no matter how long we've enjoyed it still manages to show that it has new tricks up its sleeve — notably, Simon Helberg's gift for celebrity impressions. They come in handy as Howard assumes the role of dungeon master in a game of Dungeons & Dragons on what's supposed to be a boys' night, soon invaded by the gal pals when their plans for a Vegas getaway crap out. "I've never played Dungeons & Dragons with girls before," whines the resistant-to-change Sheldon, to which Penny answers: "Don't worry, sweetie, no one has." Big boom!
Andy Samberg, Zach Galifianakis
This week, Jimmy Fallon scored the first (and probably only) interview with Kentucky Derby winner Orb, and also conducted a "lip sync-off" with John Krasinski. James Franco stopped by Zach Galifianakis' Funny or Die show "Between Two Ferns," while Nicole Richie and David Cross launched their own web series. And Charles Ramsey, the eloquent and unsuspecting Cleveland resident who discovered that his neighbor was keeping three women against their will in his home, became a true American hero. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of the best online videos:
The Office is being sent off in style.
Steve Carell, Ed Helms
Is he in or is he out?
Despite Greg Daniels telling reporters last week that Steve Carell would not be returning for the series finale of The Office (May 16, 9/8c), a TVLine report claims that Michael Scott will make an appearance in Scranton for the show's final episode.
The Office Cast
Fans came from Salt Lake City. They came from Portland (both Maine and Oregon). They came from just a few blocks away. They came to Scranton, Pennsylvania — thousands of them — to pay tribute to the show that made the city a household name: The Office.
Most of the cast of the NBC comedy was on hand for the May 4 all-day event (dubbed The Office Wrap Party), and creator Greg Daniels and some of his crew dished at a behind-the scenes panel held at the University of Scranton.

John Krasinski, Steve Carell
The Dunder Mifflin crew will assemble for the last time on the series finale of The Office, but their former boss Michael Scott won't be joining them.
Showrunner Greg Daniels told reporters on a conference call Wednesday that Steve Carell won't be appearing in the final episode.
Jenna Fischer. John Krasinski
The Office swan song is still more than three weeks away, but fans can get a first look at the series finale.
In nine new photos released by NBC on Wednesday, it looks like Dunder Mifflin's employees will be quite busy for the show's final hour (Thursday, May 16 at 9/8c). The only problem with these photos is that they lead to even more burning questions! For example, why is Dwight...
