If you're already mourning the finales of your favorite Spring shows, not to worry — there's an exciting Summer TV lineup that's sure to fill the void. With the much-anticipated return of Arrested Development, the final season of Breaking Bad, new episodes of True Blood and The Newsroom, plus plenty of brand-new series, you'll have more than enough reasons to keep tuning in. Take a look at the must-see shows coming up this Summer!
The series finale of The Office aired this week, and we're all pretty sad to say goodbye to the Dunder Mifflin gang. After nine seasons, they've all changed a lot, but no one's appearance has been altered more than that of Jim (John Krasinski). We got to reminiscing about when Jim first stole our hearts as the boy with the baby face and the floppy hair. Though he's grown out of his boyish looks, Jim's 'do has managed to evolve over the years. Don't believe us? Click through and prepare to be dazzled by the wonder that is his floppy hair.
The Office went out with a bang with its big series finale this week, packing in plenty of emotional moments — including Dwight and Angela's wedding! The event was a little unorthodox (and so was the bachelor party), but we couldn't see it any other way for two of Dunder Mifflin's quirkiest employees. Not only did the wedding include a very special guest, but it also rekindled a romance between one of the show's most memorable couples. Take a look at all the pictures from the wedding!
After nine seasons at Dunder Mifflin, The Office ended this week with a series finale that was sentimental, tidy, and funny. It picked up one year after last week's episode, and some of the employees had moved on from the office, like Stanley and Kevin, while Jim and Pam were planning their next move. Beloved characters who had left the series came back for cameos, like Kelly and Ryan, but it was the return of Michael Scott that was the best, most moving surprise. I don't even care that the show creators denied it for so long — in Jim's words, it was the best prank ever. From there, the episode piled on the emotion, from Dwight and Angela's wedding to yet another great Jim and Pam moment and an amazing party scene in the office itself. I thought it was the perfect way to close out The Office, but I want to know what you think: did the finale leave you satisfied?
Brace yourself for some waterworks. Images of The Office's series finale have been released, and we've got a bit of a mixed bag. Dwight leads the company in martial arts practice out in the parking lot, Jim and Pam are smiling (hopefully happily ever after), and Andy is grinning like a maniac. The one-hour finale airs at 9 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, on NBC. Will you be watching to see how the series closes?
If a friend or co-worker is into you and you don't feel the same, it can be more than a little awkward to let him down. Whether he's a lifelong pal, an acquaintance you'll be seeing around, or a guy who works just a few cubicles away, that common ground can make turning him down feel impossible. Still, that's no reason to pretend you're into him just because it's easier. Instead, follow these tips to say no under even the trickiest of circumstances:
- Evaluate the relationship. Before you reject any date offers, take the time to step back and consider your approach. If you're feeling 50/50 on whether or not you're interested, think about what you'd gain or lose by giving him a shot. Is it worth going on a date to see if sparks fly? Would he feel better if you at least gave it a chance? Or is he the type who'd rather not go through the motions if you know you're not into it?
- Don't dillydally. It's never polite to wait days before responding, but it's especially rude when you've been asked out by someone you already know. No matter what kind of news you'll be passing along, be respectful and make a point to reply the same day.
- Pick the right medium to communicate. If it's a friend who's casually texted to ask you out, it's perfectly fine to text him your response. Dealing with a co-worker? Don't IM him from 20 feet away. Instead, muster the courage to say something face-to-face — he'll appreciate that you were up front with him, and you'll avoid the awkwardness of seeing him just after you've messaged him with a refusal.
- Set the postrejection tone. Chances are, he's going to feel a bit blue after you've turned him down, so it's on you to establish a normal, easygoing vibe. Smile and make small talk, but don't go overboard and shower him with attention, because that'll only rub salt in the wound. People tend to mimic the way they're treated, so do your best to treat him like a friendly acquaintance and hopefully, eventually, he'll be able to rise to the occasion himself.

With the series finale of The Office approaching, we're celebrating Pam and Jim's sweet love story by taking a look at the couple's best moments through the years. The road wasn't always easy for Pam and Jim, but a wedding and two kids later, their romance still makes fans swoon. From rocky beginnings to a (more or less) happily ever after, here's the story of everyone's favorite Scranton couple — in GIFs.
I thought this day would never come, but The Office's much-hyped series finale is airing tonight. If you think you're sad, imagine how Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, and Rainn Wilson feel. In an extended tribute video from NBC, the three stars share their feelings on what the show has meant to them over the course of its nine seasons, they thank the fans, and things get emotional. I assume we'll get to see even more of the interviews during the prefinale retrospective, airing before the episode. In the meantime, check out the clip and make sure the tissues are close at hand.
Oscar winner Ben Affleck has been tasked with hosting the season finale of Saturday Night Live this weekend, and he and Bill Hader are giving us a little taste of what's to come. What might that be? Affleck impersonating Hader ("Hi, my name is Bill and I like it funky and sweet!") and a reasonable amount of Argo jokes. I'm excited to see Affleck host, but these promos feel really bittersweet given this week's news that Hader is leaving SNL after this season. More reason to tune in this weekend, I suppose.
