Why James Spader Is Leaving and Ten Other Revelations About The Office

Vulture - Next month will mark one year since Steve Carell left The Office and took Michael Scott with him. There's been plenty of tumult since for the Scranton clockpunchers, from a painful (and celebrity-filled) search for his replacement to the arrival of James Spader's predictably creepy Robert California. Ratings for the show are down from last year, when Carell's pending exit artificially boosted numbers, and there has been some fan grumbling that The Office isn't the same without him. And yet, even in its eighth season, it remains far and away NBC's top-rated Thursday show, and its biggest scripted series overall among viewers under 50.

The story is too old to be commented.

The show seems better since Steve Carell left.

The episodes without Spader are the episodes that are actually worth watching. Sad to hear Kelly is leaving though.
