NBC's Emmy-winning comedy series
The Office will join the TBS lineup this fall - with
repeats - it was announced on Thursday. "
The Office is not only a top-notch sitcom, but also one of the most relatable comedies on television," says Ken Schwab, senior vice president of programming for TBS and TNT. "It's a wonderful addition to our lineup, and we're thrilled to bring it to our audience of comedy lovers."
That's what she said!
OK, the joke doesn't really work in this instance.
UPDATE: NBC's My Name Is Earl is also TBS-bound, though not until fall 200 9. As for The Office, to those fearing "burnout," the cabler will only air two episodes a week (back-to-back) for the first two years of the deal.
