TBS picks up The Office reruns

the officeTBS is adding The Office into its repertoire of nightly comedy reruns starting this fall. There aren't a whole lot of details yet, like whether the net is going to be running all three seasons, and how many episodes will air each week.

TBS prides itself on its evening comedy line-ups and I have to admit that I often get sucked in to watching some of my favorite episodes of Family Guy, Seinfeld and Friends. I can definitely see myself doing that with reruns of The Office, too. The net also plays reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond, King of Queens, and Sex and the City. Even though I don't particularly like those last three shows, it's nice to see The Office joining their ranks as classic comedies.

Fox-owned stations will also get to start playing The Office reruns during local access starting fall of 2009.

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant must be thrilled. Syndication can make some big money for them.

**UPDATE: TBS also bought My Name is Earl. Reruns start in fall 2009.
