Can The Office Survive Without Steve Carell?

Jim may become Dunder Mifflin’s manager once again whether he likes it or not.

Steve Carell, who’s played the Scranton branch leader, Michael Scott, on “The Office” for the past six seasons, says that the 2010-11 season will “probably” be his last on the show. In a BBC radio interview with his “Date Night” co-star Tina Fey, he notes that his contract runs out next season and he most likely won’t renew it.

Interviewer: How long will you stay with ‘The Office’ for? How many more series? How long does your contract run?
Carell: Contract through next season.
Interviewer: And will you stay after that?
Carell: I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.

That’s potentially big news for the show, which is NBC’s second-highest-rated series (after “Sunday Night Football”) among adults 18-49; it’s averaging a 4.6 rating in the demographic this season, which places it in the Top 20 among all shows, and just under 9 million viewers per week, more than any of the other series in NBC’s Thursday lineup.

Though this is not an official statement, its not a good sign for the show. Would you watch “The Office” sans Michael Scott?
