He appears to have gotten his wish.Whether that extra 15 minutes makes room for a much discussed (and possibly nonexistent) Steve Carell cameo remains to be seen."The Office" finale will be preceded by an hour-long... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/the-office-series-finale-extended-by-15-minutes.html
