Season Finale: Steve Carell/Usher
Everyone was in such a good mood this week. I feel like the writers and cast are happy with the way things turned out this year. I know I am. Steve Carell was great as always and it was extra cool to have his wife (and ex-SNL cast member) Nancy Walls in the monologue. We had many of "The Office" cast around during the show. We see them pretty often and some of our writers have gone on to work for that show, so they are kind of like an extended family.
Usher was unbelievable. How does somebody dance like that? I talked to him in the hallway. I was like "How do you do it? You must rehearse every minute of the day."
He just smiled and said that he didn't! "It's just natural, the same way you guys do what you do."
I loved that Ricky Gervais was there too. Man, I am really name dropping. What do you call that on a blog? Blogdropping? Nameblogging?
I took some photos during rehearsals and the show:
Thursday at the re-write table. That's James Anderson on the left. Jason is probably laughing at something I said which I'm sure was very funny. Check out the framed photos of different sketches on the wall.

I still have some more episodes to write about that I skipped over. So I'll do that soon. Thank you!
