Missing NBC's "The Office"? How About a New Promo, Then?

It's only a month or so until the season premiere of one of Televisionary's favorite television series, The Office! I don't know about you but I cannot wait for the Scranton-set mockumentary comedy to return (I've kept busy this summer replaying past episodes and making wish lists for Season Four).

While you'll have to wait a few more weeks for the season premiere, here's a new promo from NBC to tide you over until The Office returns with new episodes (including four one-hour installments up front), just in case you forgot where things left off last season:



The Office Season Four kicks off Thursday, September 27th, at its new time of 9 pm ET/PT. In the meantime, you try getting that song out of your head. And, NBC, please--for the love of Dunder-Mifflin--no more promos with heartfelt montages of Jim and Pam!

Awesome!!! I love the scene with Ryan dumping Kelly and can't wait for next season. Will Jan still be in it now that she's fired?

I second the notion of no more promos with "heartfelt montages of Jim and Pam." The cheesy music alone made me want to hurl. I love Jim and Pam but they are not the end all and be all of this show and hopefully like you suggested they will take more of a backseat next season.

I'm ready for the Office right now goshdarnit.

While I've been watching the reruns all summer, I'm itching for new episodes of The Office now. A month is still a long time off in my book!

A little piece of me has been missing, and I didn't realize it until just now.

Enough with that awful Mika song already and with the sappy Jim and Pam scenes. I like The Office because it makes me laugh and not because it makes me vomit.

I can't wait for Season Four but I wish the promo had some new scenes in it from next season and not all stuff we've already seen.

That song just seems so out of place for an "Office" promo. I can't wait for Season 4 but agree that the show is much more than a Jim-and-Pam-Will-They-or-Won't-They Extravaganza. The show would be nothing without Steve Carell's extraordinary talent!

Yeah, that promo was a little sloppy. What was with that bizarre music choice anyway? And the audio pause on Michael's one-liners was mildly amusing the first time only.

Sheesh, enough with the JAM sap. Yes, Jim and Pam are the element that gives the show its mainstream appeal, but come on. There are so many better storylines to consider. I want a Toby promo, dammit. And the writers really need to write Meredith as an actual character and not just as a sexually-frustrated alcoholic [which is funny, but doesn't do the actor justice.]

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
