Was last night's episode of The Office really supersized?
First off, it was a great episode. Dwight shooting Roy in the eyes, all the Toby/Michael stuff (Toby is truly one of the great characters on TV right now), and Ed Helms returning at the end (which I didn't see coming) were all really funny moments. But I'm wondering: was the show really "supersized?"
Oh, I know it was longer. It started at 8pm and got over at 8:40, so it was longer in length, but didn't it seem like there were more commercials than usual? And what about that 4 minute long commercial for 30 Rock? Sure, they increase the length of the episode by 10 minutes, but 4 of those minutes are for an extended promo for another one of NBC's shows? It seemed to be shoved in there and was rather distracting.
Yeah, even with more commercials the episode was still probably a few minutes longer than a typical Office episode, but still, it's a bit of a gyp.
I'm not sure if the same thing happened on 30 Rock. I watched the episode, but I didn't notice anymore commercials than usual. Readers?
