When NBC made episodes of The Office available on itunes last year, the show really took off. Ripping a page from that playbook, they have decided to release an exclusive extended episode of The Office on NBC.com Thursday night.
NBC is calling it a "producer’s cut," which is just a longer version of the show you will see Thursday night but with more content including extra scenes. I have to imagine there is so much funny in The Office that gets cut every week because the show is just hilarious that it will be really interesting to see what they cut out. You can check it out on NBC.com immediately after the show airs.
