    I enjoyed the Office especially the story line with Dwight and Angela. I think NBC shouldn’t have passed on the Dwight ‘The Farm’ spin-off, my feeling is that it would have done better than most of the sitcoms NBC has been showing this season.

    It makes you wonder why NBC didn’t throw everything they have at The Office cast/producers to keep them around for Season 10. It’s the only comedy they have that they can rely on to bring in a halfway respectable rating. And it sounds like the 18-34 ratings are still relatively strong.
