Confession: now that Thursday TV is back, my productivity will plummet, at least through May sweeps.

Because any fans of The Office and 30 Rock know that 100% of your focus must be on the show in order to catch all of the wonderful fast jokes and references to older episodes jam-packed into each half-hour show.  It’s a serious thing.

  • DON’T hoodwink your employees into coming over;
  • DON’T plan on serving osso bucco to a group of hungry guests unless you’ve been home for three hours making it;

  • DON’T play your ex-assistant’s new CD as background music to “Password” if it has any insinuations in the lyrics that you “made him into a man;”
  • DON’T let the situation come to a point where the police need to be called in.  Otherwise, you may just end up like Jan here:


Don’t believe me?  Perhaps this two-minute review will make my point.
