James Spader's Robert California just landed the job of new "CEO" of Dunder-Mifflin at the start of this season of "The Office," but the actor's already handing in his resignation.
The character was a potential "applicant" for Michael Scott's old gig when Steve Carell left the series, but Spader's California was then brought on as the replacement for Kathy Bates' Jo Bennett.

Rainn Wilson's Dwight Schrute didn't end up being the new boss of "The Office," although we know at least one person who was pulling for him, but he just may get a show of his own.
Deadline is reporting that NBC is eyeing a spinoff concept for Wilson's unique bespectacled character, who hasn't been too pleased at the "Office" since Steve Carell's Michael Scott departed and new boss Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) has stepped in.
The proposed idea, a family comedy, is said to be the brainchild of Wilson and "Office" exec Paul Lieberstein, and would find Schrute back home at his family's beet farm and bed-and-breakfast.

Let's take a look at the shows and moments that set Twitter on fire this year:
