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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas
