    I would guess he'll be back for the series finale in two years.

    I actually think that this show is getting better now, it will be interesting to see who will take over for Mike Scott long term.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Is there a long term future though?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I could imagine a roving band of branch managers, with big-name guest stars trying to fill Michael's shoes.

    A three or four episode arc would be easy money, fun to do, and fairly painless for the payoff.

    Probably not, I mean they have already done basically everything that means its jumped the shark other than bring in Ted McGinnley and a smart mouthed 8 year old to work in the office.

    I think Louie Depalma might make an interesting office boss.

    NBC needs the show anchoring their schedule too badly to give up on it that quickly. I could see them let it limp along for more than 10 years, like ER did. I'm also not convinced that Steve Carell will be so terribly hard to replace.

    Hey, devito has a job and I don't want to see him leave it. Although, I think it would be funny.

    Re: The Office

    Have any other shows seen turnover at the lead this deep in to the series and then gone on to put up quality years afterwards?
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    MASH, though there wasn't one lead, had lots of significant turnover amongst the cast and kept it up.

    Lead is tough...here are a few major characters I can think of:

    Cheers - Diane and Coach
    Fresh Price - Aunt Viv (not the character, just the actress)
    South Park - Kenny, multiple times
    ER - Tons of people

    The key question is how important to the show is Michael Scott. I think over the past few years Michael has actually become a drain on the show. I was sad to see him go, but think the show can grow from where it was. You have 3 characters who could take a more prominent role in Jim, Andy, and Dwight.

    As long as they don't give it to someone in house (the Jim fiasco) the show should be good. It will need a different dynamic but it I think it can be very successful.

    The thing is, he's not "the lead," because it's an ensemble cast. That's why ER is such a great parallel for the way this could go, IMO.

    ER survived just fine without Clooney, Edwards, Margulies, etc. Just like The Office could survive without Michael, Jim and Pam.

    By the end of ER, none of the leads who started with the show were still there. Since both shows center on a workplace, rather than the home lives of the characters, it makes perfect sense that people would move on from that workplace, just as they do IRL.

    I forgot ER was even still until 2008....when TNT was showing the repeats (They took them off abruptly and now are beginning to do it with L & O)

    I started watching it and forgot how good the show was.....but it needed to end and it did pretty well.
