I'm not sure I'll truly believe it for another year, but according to the AP,  NBC primetime entertainment president Angela Bromstad has confirmed Carell's tenure as boss Michael Scott on The Office will end when his contract expires in 2011.

Bromstad says it's not unusual for a "major movie star" to leave a series, and added that The Office is strong enough to weather the change.
