James Spader set to depart 'The Office'

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.

According to Variety, Spader isn't returning for the NBC show's ninth season. Sad news for "Office" fans, surely, as CNN's Henry Hanks believed the Emmy-winning actor deserved a nod for the role.

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.

Is NBC developing an 'Office' spinoff for Rainn Wilson?

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.

2011's most tweetable TV

This was the year that TV and Twitter truly joined forces.

Hashtags could be seen during shows like "Glee," "Fringe" and "The Voice," and CBS, Fox and USA were among the networks where actors live-tweeted while episodes aired.

One doesn't just watch TV or DVR their favorite shows anymore. They interact about what they're viewing on social media (and encouraging live tweeting certainly doesn't hurt ratings).

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