  • Critic's notebook: 'The Office' turns out the lights

    Steve Carell, and therefore Michael Scott, did show up after all for "The Office" finale, as no one should ever have doubted, and was probably never in serious question, as often as that question had been raised over the last many months. Who spends seven...
