NBC is getting very wise to the fact that they have a dud on their hands with the Presidential comedy “1600 Penn,” and with that in mind, they are doing just about everything that they can to keep the show out of the February sweeps.
The latest example of that? On Thursday, they are going to be airing an hour of “The Office” season 9 from 9-10:01 p.m. Eastern, which will thus preempt the show so that it will not air until a little later on in the spring. The fact that “The Office” had another hour-long episode earlier this year as in some ways thrown off the show’s chronology: this is why the Valentine’s Day episode aired last week.
What we can tell you about Thursday’s episode is that we are going to be seeing Pam consider a move to Philadelphia along with Jim and their entire family, while Dwight and Angela are actually going to be spending some more time together. The press release also teases the return of Andy, but given the surprises from Thursday night’s episode we already know that he will be around.
Since we are receiving some more of “The Office” next week, NBC is going to seemingly preempt it on February 21, and give us an hour of “Parks and Recreation” instead. It still appears as though “1600 Penn” will air on this date, though this could change. While we enjoy both of these shows enough to watch a full hour, isn’t this starting to get a little bit too confusing for its own good?
