TV Spin-Off Trivia Contest Answer and The Office News

The OfficeIt seemed apropos that only a week after The Blot Says... Trivia Contest #1 asked “Which Television Show had the most spin-offs,” a huge spin-off story would break on the internet. TVGuide.com Senior Writer and world renowned TV show spoiler extraordinaire Michael Ausiello reported earlier today that NBC is developing a spin-off of fan favorite The Office. You can read Ausiello’s entire article Here. According to Ausiello’s sources, The Office would introduce an all new crop of characters in an upcoming episode and then spin those new characters off into their own show. Have no fear Office fans, Ausiello states that none of the show’s main characters would be leaving to headline the new show.

I know it’s only Tuesday afternoon but this seemed like a great time to announce the winner of The Blot Says... Trivia Contest #1. The official answer is All In The Family with 5 spin-offs: Maude, The Jeffersons, Archie Bunker’s Place, Gloria and 704 Hauser and had 2 spin-offs of spin-offs: Good Times and Checking In.

In case anyone was interested Happy Days was a close second with 4 spin-offs: Laverne & Shirley, Blansky’s Beauties, Mork and Mindy, and Joanie Loves Chachi. There’s some grey area there because Happy Days is actually a spin-off of Love, American Style so maybe Love, American Style is the answer. But technically none of the other shows are spin-offs of that show, so The Blot is making an executive ruling with All In The Family. Another top contender for the title of “TV Show with the Most Spin-Offs” is The Mary Tyler Moore Show with 3: Lou Grant, Phyllis and Rhoda. Thanks everyone for playing and all winners should be receiving their No Prize any minute now.
