Ricky Gervais To Drop By The Office

globes-gervais_120.jpgAfter seven seasons worth of speculation, The Office creator Ricky Gervais will reprise his role as David Brent, the clueless former manager of the U.K. series, on the U.S. adaptation next week. The showdown will take place on the January 27 episode, "The Seminar" and be very brief. Office show-runner Paul Lieberstein warns Vulture, that "if you don't set your TiVo right, you'll miss it." Which means that maybe the encounter takes place in the episode tag? Either way, look out for Gervais' first attempt to regain some of the statewide popularity he squandered last Sunday. [TVline]

    He didn't squander a damn thing! The public, for the most part, loved it! And we're the ones who give the show ratings, not the little wusses that put on outfits we can never afford to attend the thing.
