NBC To Stream Producer's Cut of "Branch Closing" 11/9/06

Wow... this is pretty big news.  Not sure if I appreciate having to watch the show on the web, though. 



NBC'S 'THE OFFICE' WEB EVENT STREAMS ONLY ON NBC.COM

"Producer's Cut" To Be Web-Exclusive Event On NBC.com On November 9th

BURBANK, Calif. November 6, 2006 NBC's Emmy-winning comedy "The Office" (Thursdays, 8:30 9:00pm ET/PT) will offer fans a first-ever, web-exclusive "producer's cut" on November 9th. The episode will include additional scenes and extra footage not shown in the broadcast version. Viewers can log onto NBC.com at 9:00pm (PT) on November 9th to see the web-exclusive event.

The announcement was made today by Vivi Zigler, executive vice president NBC digital entertainment and new media.

"This is a first-of-its-kind and a real bonus for fans of 'The Office,'" said Zigler. "It's also a natural for this show which has continually pushed the envelope in the digital landscape. We're seeing an incredible audience reaction to the evolving digital extensions of our programming and anticipate this being one of their favorites."

In the pivotal November 9th episode, Jan (Melora Hardin) tells Michael (Steve Carell) that the Scranton Branch will be shutting down and Michael strives to keep his staff's spirits up. Meanwhile, everyone privately begins to envision how their lives will change in the aftermath. Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, B.J. Novak, David Denman, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Kate Flannery, Angela Kinsey, Phyllis Smith, Paul Lieberstein and Mindy Kaling also star, and Ed Helms ("The Daily Show"), Rashida Jones ("Wanted") and Charles Esten ("Whose Line Is It Anyway?") guest-star.

Through October 29, "The Office" has averaged a 4.0 rating, 10 share in adults 18-49 and 8.5 million viewers overall, making it this Fall's #3 half-hour comedy on any network in adults 18-49. "The Office" is also primetime's most upscale comedy, with the highest concentration of homes with $100,000-plus incomes and highest median income for its 18-49 audience among network comedies. "The Office" has improved the Thursday 8:30pm half-hour for NBC by 14 percent versus the network's 18-49 average at this point last season. "The Office" has matched or improved upon its adult 18-49 lead-in from "My Name is Earl" with every first-run telecast this Fall.
