Looking forward to the series finale of The Office tonight? Here's something else to look forward to.
Parting is such sweet sorrow, but NBC is taking the sting out of series finale of The Office by tacking an extra 15 minutes onto the one-hour running time.
It's a dispute petty enough to be a subplot on The Office. WNEP-TV, the ABC affiliate for the show's hometown of Scranton, Pa., is refusing to run a TV spot for Dunder Mifflin paper products during the Oscars. Why? Most likely because the fictional brand is too connected to rival network NBC.
Dunder Mifflin released its Super Bowl spot called "Paper War" online Thursday night, ending a crowdsourcing contest and awarding Freddy Rabbath of Tallahassee, Fla., $15,000 for creating the winning ad.
