B.J. Novak Revealed His Biggest Regret About ‘The Office’ and Why He Left the Show

The Office aired for nine seasons on NBC before coming to an end in 2013.

By using a mockumentary format, the series follows the lives of office workers from the fictitious Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, located in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

Based on the British television series of the same name, creator and writer Greg Daniels made an American adaptation.

Throughout the show’s run, former cast member John Krasinski’s favorite episode of all-time marked a turning point for the comedy series. In 2018, the actor and director sat down with Stephen Colbert as part of 92Y Talks.

During the interview, the actor said that the second episode of The Office, titled “Diversity Day,” is his all-time favorite episode in the show.

The actor noted the pilot episode was an exact copy of Ricky Gervais’s British series. So for Krasinski, the second episode signaled a transitional period in the show.

“B.J. Novak wrote ‘Diversity Day,’” he said. “I remember that day when [the diversity sensitivity counselor played by Larry Wilmore]comes in and says, ‘My name is Mr.

Brown,’ and Michael says, ‘I’m not gonna call you that.’”

Krasinski continued, “It was that moment combined with Kelly slapping him [for his impression of a bodega owner]where I said, ‘Oh my God, we’re a part of something totally unique – and I don’t think anyone will watch this.

But I knew it was really good, and I [remember thinking]we were a part of something special.”

Although many fans may consider “Diversity Day” a classic, the episode is quite controversial. In The Office Season 1 Episode 2, Michael Scott (played by Steve Carell) makes a controversial impression of the actor and comedian Chris Rock.

As a result, the office workers must undergo a racial diversity seminar.
