NBC has bumped up Pam’s due date on The Office. The Jam baby will be born on Thursday, March 4, which will also mark the first post-Olympic episode.
In anticipation of the big event, NBC has released two new promos focusing on Pam and Jim. Hopefully, the added attention will also help the show’s ratings.
Last night The Office placed third, behind CBS’ Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains and ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy with a total of 7.4 million viewers.
Some fans have been disappointed by The Office this season, and feel like the show has lost some of the key dynamics that made it a hit in the first place. One glaring example has been Jim’s willingness to take on a role that he once thought was pointless. He use to be the voice of the audience within the office, the one who was in on the joke. Now he’s become the man, not in on the joke like he used to be, not the butt of the joke like Michael, but instead, his character has turned into “the man”.
This sentiment certainly hasn’t helped the rating and only adds to the pressure NBC must already be feeling over the show’s downturn.
Check out the new trailers below and let us know what you think of The Office this season.
