You knew there had to be a catch, right? NBC recently announced that it had renewed both My Name Is Earl and The Office for another season. The latter laffer, however, will wrap up its current run in March, says the New York Post, as Golden Globe winner Steve Carell takes time off to shoot the film sequel Evan Almighty. Earl, meanwhile, has been tossed its own curve ball: Jason Lee has the chicken pox, shutting down production for a couple of weeks. All together now, let's cast a suspicious eye on the show's two rug rats.
