Jenna Fischer, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Jenna Fischer had a surprise for Jay Leno on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). It wasn't that she's pregnant, as that's become pretty obvious by now. As Fischer stated, "You want to tell people or else they think you've just been on a big food binge or something."

But while that cat has been let out of the bag, she did save an exclusive bit of information for Leno and his audience. When he asked her if this was the first grandbaby for her parents, she responded, "This is the second grandchild, but the first grandson."

She then told him that he'd just gotten the exclusive on the gender of her baby, which was very exciting for Leno. "So like a lot of girls, you were saving yourself for Jay," he joked.

Amy PoehlerWhat happens with you throw Amy Poehler, Jenna Fischer, Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Julie Bowen and Teri Hatcher into a room together? Hilarity.

The aforementioned funny ladies gathered as part of The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable series to discuss their big breaks, best moments and those bad jobs everybody in the industry seems to have had.

In the video, Poehler attributes the success of her transition from improv to 'Saturday Night Live' to her experience with the Upright Citizens Brigade.

"It's very difficult to comment on your own career," Poehler said, with the other women nodding in agreement. "It's very strange, you kind of want to leave it up to other people to dissect it."

'The Office' star Fischer wasn't shy about revealing details of her career. She admitted to working as a telephone psychic and spending three years working at a car wash.

Was Jenna Fischer Really Married by 'Survivor's Jeff Probst? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 18th 2011 2:57AM
Jenna Fischer talks Jeff Probst marrying her on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'It's one of those stories that certainly sounds like tabloid fodder. That's why Jay Leno had to check if it was real when Jenna Fischer was on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on NBC).

"I heard that you got married by Jeff Probst, the 'Survivor' guy," he said. "Now is that a tabloid thing or is that real?"

The story isn't as funny as some of the images Leno concocted of Probst running some kind of 'Survivor' church. Instead, it was simply a matter of Fischer and her then-fiancé Lee Kirk wanting to be married by someone they knew. When they heard that their friend Jeff Probst could do it, they booked him.

Cheating on 'The Office'How can you tell if someone is cheating on you? In order to learn the truth, you could always consult with your friends -- or your co-workers. On 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC), Michael (Steve Carell) suspects that something is up. He thinks that his new girlfriend Donna (Amy Pietz) is messing around with another man. He then makes the questionable decision to employ Mr. Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) as a private investigator.

[Spoiler alert.]

'The Office' - 'Body Language' Recap

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 30th 2010 12:29AM
Steve Carell and Amy Pietz in 'The Office' - 'Body Language'(S06E22) It's odd seeing a Michael Scott that's relatively restrained and under control, isn't it?

I say this because, even though some of what Michael did in this episode would be deemed wildly inappropriate in any office, he had a reason for it. And, compared to some of the embarrassments Michael has perpetrated within the walls of Dunder Mifflin Scranton, misinterpreting the signals from a bar manager is way, way down on the list. Remember, this is a guy who held a teenage pizza delivery guy hostage.

But it did make for a pretty funny episode. Even Dwight's Schrute-ish shenanigans weren't even all that annoying, especially because it's always funny to see his schemes backfire on him.

Pam's Breast Pump on 'The Office'Well, you have to go back to work sometime. Especially when you're a cast member on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC). Pam (Jenna Fischer) returns to Dunder Mifflin after being away on maternity leave. But as soon as she gets back to work, trouble ensues. Her breast pump is suddenly missing. If past experience of 'The Office' is any guide, then this problem will be resolved in the most awkward way possible.

'The Office' - 'Secretary's Day' Recap

(S06E22) We haven't heard from the folks at Dunder Mifflin Scranton for almost a month, and it's refreshing that the first episode back, the antics are generally related to office-specific issues. Well, at least the better part of the episode was office-related.

'The Office' - 'Happy Hour' Recap

(S06E20)
If you took this episode and dropped it in the middle of season two or three, it probably would have fit in nicely. Well, except for the fact that you might be asking why Pam was on maternity leave (and why Jim is the dad), why Andy is working in Scranton, and just who the hell Erin is.

But you know what I'm getting at. The tone, pacing, and comedy of this episode continues the recent trend of 'The Office' getting back to what made people love it to begin with. And, yes, part of that means that Michael is going to make an ass of himself. But at least the season six version of Michael somehow gets a little bit of hope mixed in with his desperation stew.

'The Office' - 'New Leads' Recap

John Krasinski in 'The Office' - 'New Leads'(S06E19) It's starting to feel like Sabre's purchase of Dunder-Mifflin was just the jumping-odd point the writers needed to bring the Scranton branch dynamic back to something that feels like the old days. For the second week in a row, we have an episode that felt very much like the ones from the first couple of seasons -- without the Jim/Pam drama -- with the entire office interacting with each other and a large amount of mistrust floating about. And it made for one of the funniest episodes in years.

With sales being king at Sabre, the sales staff was letting their elevated status go to their heads. This brings about some interesting character aspects we haven't seen much of. Phyllis, for instance, gets to take her status out on Michael, who's embarrassed her any number of times, and Angela, who she just plain hates. Andy walks out of a tedious Michael-called meeting. Stanley actually looks like he's doing work. It's amazing how a high commission can motivate even the most sedentary salesperson, huh?

Jim and Pam's Baby Mix-Up on 'The Office' (VIDEO)

The Office, Jim and Pam, BabyYou just knew that the debut of Jim and Pam's little bundle of joy wouldn't go off without a hitch. And, lo and behold, this particular snafu didn't even involve Michael Scott.

If Pam was Salma Hayek, it would have been just another day of breastfeeding someone else's baby. Instead, it was a really awkward moment that will probably haunt the couple into infinity.

Then again, we're guessing the little mix-up will cause new parents to keep their babies close to them in the maternity ward. So, nice PSA from 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC).

'The Office' - 'The Delivery' Recap

'The Office' - 'The Delivery'
(S06E16 / S06E17)
Remember how the one hour Pam/Jim wedding episode was considered by many -- including me -- to be 'The Office's' best episode of the season? Well, the one-hour Pam/Jim baby episode definitely isn't in that category.

Why? Because, through a lot of the episode, Pam and Jim displayed none of the charm that made us fall in sitcom love with them in the first place. To compound the situation, they're being written into situations that would make fans of 'Yes, Dear' cringe. But we'll get to that later.

As usual with most one-hour 'Office' episodes, the first half was better than the second. But even the first half of this one had some problems.

Steve Carell in 'The Office' - 'Manager and Salesman'(S06E16) Ahhhhhh.... order has finally been restored to the universe.

Can you feel it? The air is cleaner, food tastes better, and the two feet of snow outside my window is a fluffy dream instead of an icy mess.

It seems like the producers of 'The Office' realized things weren't right in their world and they decided to rectify things. And in the process they made one of the more satisfying episodes of the season.

Review: 'The Office' - 'Sabre'

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 5th 2010 12:30AM
The Office: Sabre
(S01E15)
Why has this season of 'The Office' been so off-kilter? There have been promising episodes but very few that hit the mark. In fact, the only episode that can hold its own with classic 'Office' episodes is the Pam-Jim wedding, and I'm starting to fear that the show really is trying to figure out where to go from that high point.

And Jam may be the big problem here. They're not interesting anymore. But I'll get to them later.

So Dunder Mifflin is now owned by a company called Sabre. We don't quite know what they're all about except that they sell printers and they have a feisty CEO played by Kathy Bates. And in exchange for saving the branch's ass, they've asked for a few very reasonable changes. You'd think that even Michael Scott would embrace those changes. You'd be wrong.
