The final few episodes of this season of The Office have been relentlessly discussed in the last few weeks, as the show prepares to send Michael Scott off into the sunset, bring in guest stars Will Ferrell, Will Arnett and Ricky Gervais and eventually name Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin replacement. Now the network has given them a little bit of extra time to fit it all in-- according to Vulture, the April 28 farewell episode will be 50 minutes long.

That kind of extension has ripple effects on the rest of the Thursday NBC schedule, of course, so now Parks & Recreation will also benefit from an extended episode; The Office will run from to 9:50, Parks & Rec will air at 9:50 until 10:30, and then 30 Rock will be bumped to 10:30 for the evening. Outsourced won't air that night at all, maybe because we'll flash back to Michael's "Diversity Day" Indian impressions and that's good enough?
