Steve Carell’s ‘Office’ finale gets an extra 20 minutes

By | April 11, 2011 at 2:40 pm | No comments

I’ll admit to being pretty sad about Steve Carell’s looming departure from The Office. As in I might cry in two weeks when his final episode airs.

Last night, at a fundraising gala for something-that-I-have-never-heard-of-because-I’m-not-fancy, Alec Baldwin was given an award to thank him for his dedication to the art and culture of NYC. Prior to his acceptance speech, he told reporters that the 2011-2012 season of 30 Rock will be its last. Their contracts are expiring, he explained, and Tina Fey is going on to a more...
