Well, the thing is simple. Does anybody see it? If you do, what do you think about the show? Is it dead now? Will Steve Carrell actually leave the show after Season 7? And if he does leave, will the show survive?
I personally think that's it's the funniest show of the decade (U.S. version of course, U.K.'s version is shit) and I've seen it since season one. I believe that it is close to an end, if they don't get an interesting big piture subject in, and I think that they could've ended it ages ago, like when Jim told Pam that he loved her after the Casino night, it would've been a sad finale but unexpected. I think Steve Carrell will change his mind after Season 7, and make Season 8. If he does leave, I think they should promote a funnier character like Andy or maybe Jim. Although it would be fun, after Steve Carrell's departure the show would just head down.
