"The Office" cast and producers open up about the tough loss of the World's Best Boss Michael Scott, a.k.a. series star Steve Carell. After rising from network underdog to Best Comedy Series Emmy winner in Season 2, "The Office" solidified its status as one of the top comedies on TV. In 2007, NBC moved the series to its prized Thursday-at-9 timeslot. The following year, the network hand-picked The Office to air immediately following Super Bowl XLIII. However, the show was about to face a huge blow.
