Dwight Schrute

Should Dwight Replace Michael on 'The Office?'

by Rich Keller, posted Jul 12th 2010 1:30PM
Should Dwight Schrute be the logical replaement when Michael Scott leaves 'The Office' at the end of season 7?Dwight Schrute -- Regional Manager, Dunder Mifflin. If star Mindy Kaling had her way, this could be a reality as soon as Steve Carell leaves 'The Office' at the end of this upcoming season. Of course, being a co-executive producer of the NBC comedy, she has some additional pull. And that's why Dwight is definitely in the running as Michael's replacement..

In fact, according to Entertainment Weekly, Rainn Wilson, who portrays the slightly manic Dwight, is at the top of the succession list. The reason, says Kaling, is she likes to promote from within rather than pull an unknown factor into the role. With enough grooming this upcoming season, Kaling thinks Dwight could become a terrific boss.

We're not too sure about that.

He then makes the questionable decision to employ Mr. Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) as a private investigator.

Dwight Finds a New Girl on 'The Office'Dwight Schrute, everyone's favorite nerd, has had a tough romantic road on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC). After losing his fiancee Angela to his office-rival Andy, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) took a short break from romance. But then the pair entered into a formal agreement to have a baby together.

But on the latest episode of 'The Office,' Dwight meets a new girl -- Isabel -- who seems to change his mind about Angela. Dwight seems instantly lovestruck. "What's your blood-type?" he says to Isabel, using a new all-time classic pick-up line. Angela becomes enraged, and then romantic matters progress between Dwight and Isabel. "You are an impressive specimen," he says to her; and then they -- well, you'll just have to watch for yourself.

Kathy Bates on 'The Office': 'Truman Capote and I Slept With Three of the Same Guys' (VIDEO)

Kathy Bates joins 'The Office'Kathy Bates is the new owner of Dunder-Mifflin on 'The Office' (Thurs., 9PM ET on NBC), and we couldn't be more thrilled with this development. She plays Jo Bennett, a woman who's been around the block eight or ten times.

In her words: "I'm a breast cancer survivor, close personal friends with Nancy Pelosi, and Truman Capote and I slept with three of the same guys."

Let's just hope that little spark between her and Dwight doesn't burst into a weird, awkward flame. On second thought, that might be a lot of fun.

Ladies and gentlemen, 30 Rock and The Office (courtesy of The Kansas City Chiefs)

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 10th 2009 8:06PM
Like most National Football League teams, the Kansas City Chiefs spend their free time creating parodies of NBC Thursday night comedies. So far they've done The Office (below) and 30 Rock (after the jump - warning: it plays automatically).

I don't know how funny these are, but they're well produced and cast. Which one do you think is better?

TV Squad Ten: TV's biggest rule breakers

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 28th 2009 10:56AM

Rules are meant to be broken... especially for these ten television characters. For them, the rest of the world has one standard to live by and they have another. It makes them interesting and fun to watch... you just wouldn't necessarily want to be the person having to deal with them because they could drive you to distraction. Here's my ten pack of characters who live in a world of their own, according to no rules except their own. From the not-too-bad to the really bad.

10. Patrick Jane, The Mentalist

You would think that as a consultant to the CBI -- California Bureau of Investigation -- Patrick Jane would be compelled to uphold the rules and regulations of the department. However, Jane is a free spirit when it comes to office protocol. He does his own thing. For instance, bugging the office of a CBI higher-up is definitely not kosher. Jane doesn't care; he did it anyway and will probably get away with it.

Review: The Office - The Lover

The cast of NBC's 'The Office.'
(S06E07) "You know, I really would have appreciated a heads up that you were into dating mothers. I would have introduced you to mine." - Dwight

Ahh, that's more like it. After last week's garbage episode, "Mafia," The Office seems to be back on track by exploring two of the best plots the show has had in quite some time. Jim and Pam's wedding is obviously still the high-water mark, and it will probably continue to be that way for quite some time, but "The Lover" was certainly a step in the right direction.

Deleted Scenes: Dwight Schrute's book of failure - literally

by Bob Sassone, posted May 4th 2009 7:31PM
For a while there I thought The Office was meandering a bit. Over the top situations, some episodes (especially the hour-long ones) that weren't particularly funny, plot developments I didn't like. But it's been really good again lately. I thought the whole "Michael Scott starts his own paper company" arc was going to be a disaster, but it turned out to be funny, interesting, even important. Here's a clip from the recent "Casual Friday" episode. It features the Dunder-Mifflin gang talking about whether or not failure is an option.

Watch out, Jim! You're about to be fired from Dunder Mifflin

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 12th 2009 2:04PM
Jim H The OfficeI don't usually offer advice to television characters for a variety of reasons, number one being they (or the people who create them) don't listen to me, and number two being I don't want to be taken away by the authorities. However, I'm risking the latter and flying in the face of the former to serve up some counsel to Jim Halpert. Attention Jim: you are on the verge of being fired!

All the signs are there on The Office. Jim has thrived in Dunder Mifflin under Michael Scott's leadership (such as it was), by doing just enough to satisfy corporate. He had a comfy niche in the Scranton branch. Well, the happy times are over. The new boss, Charles Miner, does not like Jim.

The Michael Scott Paper Company

As Jay pointed out in his reviews of The Office this week (read them here and here), the writers have managed to take an established show into amazing new directions. After quitting in a huff, Michael Scott started his own paper company, and The Michael Scott Paper Company already has a Web site up and running.

"Serving Scranton's paper needs since 2009," the site touts, the company is more than just paper. It's about creating meaningful relationships with people.

The Office: Golden Ticket

the golden ticket the office
(S05E17) I'm with Jay Black: last week's episode of The Office was kind of "meh" for me. Luckily, this week more than made up for it. Even though season five has our favorite Dunder-Mifflinites looking way more glamorous than in the first season (I mean, really. I know Pam's in love, but it does not make your hair that shiny), we've gone back to season one levels of Michael Scott stupidity.

At first, when Jim and Michael were freaking out about giving 10% off to one of their biggest clients, I couldn't figure out what the big deal was. I mean, I love sales and all, but 10% isn't enough "whimsy" to make me want to wear a top hat. Then I realized that the coupon was for 10% the entire year -- and as Darryl said, they use three pallets of paper a week. So that's bad enough -- but then it turned into 50%, and I can see why everyone was freaking out.

Fun Find: 'The Office' Mash-Up

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 18th 2009 3:35PM
The Dunder Mifflin gang is even funnier set to a warbled '80s tune remix.

There's plenty of homegrown look-at-me content on YouTube, but every once in a while, there's that rare find that makes your work day a little bit brighter.

For fans of 'The Office,' the latest mash-up -- set to the tune of Billy Joel's 'We Didn't Start the Fire' -- is a must-watch. It cleverly recaps classic and more recent moments, from the kidnapped pizza delivery kid and Andy's bloody fun run nipples to the toaster oven incident-turned-catchy refrain "Ryan started the fire."

Could you watch Michael Scott dance on the booze cruise all day? Are you Scrantonicity's biggest fan? And how much is a Schrute Buck really worth? Watch. Giggle. Enjoy.

TV Squad Ten: Most outrageous characters on TV

by Debra McDuffee, posted Jan 6th 2009 11:02AM
Neil Patrick Harris as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother

Random House defines outrageous as highly unusual or unconventional; extravagant; remarkable. It's as though they've been watching TV, and wrote their definition to fit some of the crazy characters on television shows today.

Oh, don't get me wrong; I'm not complaining. I love these larger-than-life characters, played to perfection by the talented actors who grace these roles. Some fit in perfectly with their surroundings, others stand out like a sore thumb amongst castmates. One thing they all have in common, though, is that watching them is pure entertainment.

Patrick Jane (played by Simon Baker on The Mentalist)

Jane doesn't quite have the social graces to blend into society, and that's why I love him. The frumpy suits, the obnoxious antics, and the constant pushing of the envelope make for some good TV. From card counting in the casino to reading Lisbon's mind; hypnotizing suspects to making a sandwich in a victim's home, Jane's done it all. Unconventional, to say the least.
