The Idea of Cancelling The Office After Carell Leaves Is Punishable By Death


Look, I have enjoyed The Office as much as the next guy, but I can’t say I disagree with the sentiment of this comic. People always want more of something until it starts going downhill, and only in foresight do they claim that it should have been put down before it got to this point. That’s the silver lining of early cancellations of shows like Arrested Development and Party Down: they never had a chance to devolve into mediocrity as ratings and show quality slowly dropped down to a point where it could finally be cancelled.

Hell, maybe whoever they get to replace Carell will completely revitalize the show and give it a new burst of energy. Then again, maybe not. [via]
