About the Show
A fly-on-the-wall docu-reality parody about modern American office life, The Office delves into the lives of the workers at Dunder Mifflin Paper Supply Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Regional manager Michael Scott (Golden Globe winner and Emmy nominee Steve Carell, Get Smart, Little Miss Sunshine) is a single, middle-aged man who is the boastful tour guide for the documentary.
With unshaken enthusiasm, Michael believes he is the office funnyman, a fountain of business wisdom and his employees’ cool friend. He has no clue that his employees tolerate his inappropriate behavior only because he signs their paychecks. Painstakingly trying to be liked and to look cool, Michael comes off alternately absurd and pathetic. His prize possession is his World’s Greatest Boss mug—which he had to buy for himself.
Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer, Walk Hard, Blades of Glory) is the reasonable and friendly office receptionist who bears the brunt of Michael’s routines. The bright spots in Pam’s day are her conversations with Jim Halpert (John Krasinski, Leatherheads, The Holiday), a likable sales rep with a good sense of humor who should have found a better job years ago, but is too comfortable with his office mates and routine to leave.
Jim shares his working space with Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson, The Rocker, The Last Mimzy), the arrogant assistant to the regional manager. Dwight is intensely irritating to normal people, while Jim spends a lot of time finding new, interesting ways to drive Dwight crazy.
Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak, Punk’d) is the young, smart, former temp, who quickly figured out the real office politics, despite Michael’s attempts to instill the official point-of-view.Full Episode List

Robert Gant (Popular) and Elizabeth Hurley (Gossip Girl, Austin Powers) have inked recurring roles on The Tomorrow People, reports E!Online. Gant will play the mysterious new boyfriend of Stephen’s (Robbie Amell) mom, while Hurley will voice Ultra’s A.I. super-computer with an oddly vindictive streak. The Tomorrow People is all-new Wednesday at 9pm, with the midseason finale next week.
Katrina Law (Spartacus, Legend of the Seeker) will fill the shoes of Ra’s al Ghul’s love child, Nyssa, another member of the League of Assassins, in upcoming episodes of Arrow, confirms EW. There’s speculation online that Summer Glau’s character, Isabel Rochev, is secretly Ghul’s daughter, Talia.
With Damon’s Augustine past revealed on The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder teases this week’s flashbacks as “brutal” and “crazy.” In fact, costar Nina Dobrev (Elena) could barely get through the scenes, says TVLine. “I’m not good at that kind of stuff and hated watching it. I’ll probably have to close my eyes when I catch it on TV.”
Zoe’s (Rachel Bilson) cousin, Vivian (Lauren Bittner), isn’t going away any time soon—and neither is Wade’s potential romance with the Wilkes beauty, Hart of Dixie EP Leila Gerstein tells zap2it. “The next new episode (January 13) finds Zoe in the middle as the relationship is beginning. It’s her new cousin and her ex-boyfriend, and it’s hard.” Wade (Wilson Bethel) will also have his hands full trying to win over Vivian’s eight-year-old son, who hates his mom’s new suitor.
