Krasinski and Carell shared their favorite episodes — Carell talked about Michael Scott buying the microscopic plasma TV and an outtake showed them hysterical shooting it. He also liked the fun run episode, noting it was “105 degrees out” shooting it, and they talked about Michael playing Santa with Brian Baumgartner, who was Kevin, sitting on Carell’s lap. Carell also recalled how great Krasinski was when his Jim channeled Dwight.



They also talked about how it took some 19 takes to film Carell’s last episode — as he departed two seasons before the show ended, in 2013, to focus on his film career.

“That was a hard one,” Carell said. “That was tough. Some of my most fond memories, personally or professionally, are intwined and connected with that show.”

“Without a doubt,” Krasinski added.


Krasinski wrapped up his new show by saying, “This is SGN asking you to remember no matter how tough life can get, there’s always good in the world.” He later wrote on social media that he was “blown away” by the success of the debut — and asked people to continue sending him good news.
