    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Filming has stopped on the popular NBC sitcom “The Office” because star Steve Carell has refused to cross the picket lines of striking writers, a producer said Wednesday.
    Greg Daniels, executive producer of the show, says the last new episode of the show will air next week. It is among at least eight prime-time shows to stop shooting as of Wednesday because of the strike.
    A publicist for Carell did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press.
    Sally Field, who won the best actress Oscar in 1979 for the pro-union film “Norma Rae,” left the set of her show, “Brothers & Sisters,” to visit strikers and show her support.
    No new contract talks are scheduled.

    I'm surprised they don't have more shows finished. Bummer, though. Good for Steve for not crossing. Ellen DeGeneres crossed today to do her show, apparently.

    Considering half of the characters (Kelli, BJ, the PR guy) are writers for the show, it makes sense to sit it out.

    I have a lot of Netlfix to catch up on anyway.

    I knew there was a reason I made Doc save every episode from this season on our DVR.
