    Has anybody heard rumors about what characters are being spun-off? It seems like they're getting ready to spin Jim and Pam to either New York or Philadelphia, but that's just a guess.

    What's the record for the fastest cancellation in TV history? My money would be on this show to beat it.

    I read a rumor that the writer/actor that plays cousin Mose is in charge but that doesn't really mean his character will be involved. A lot of people think it will be Andy which makes some sense as it seems like he could carry a show on his own and deserves a bigger role.

    As far as the rest of the schedule goes it looks like they're really going for that next "Lost" or "Heroes" with all those serialized dramas.
