NBC to Air Six Office Reruns in a Row


In a "let's take a stroll down memory lane" preparation for Steve Carell's departure, on Thursday March 3, right after February sweeps have ended, NBC will preempt its regular three-hour comedy block for six episodes of The Office. So instead of reruns of Community, Perfect Couples, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, and Outsourced, there will just be reruns of The Office. Look, MTV shouldn't be the only network that gets to bludgeon you with marathons, and if NBC doesn't do it before Carell leaves, they'll never have as good an excuse. [TV by the Numbers]
