The Office picked up for an additional 7 episodes (Now 13!)

Great news for us Office fans!OS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) "The Office" is in no danger of being downsized, at least not for the near future.

NBC has ordered seven more episodes of the comedy series starring Steve "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" Carell, bringing its total to 13 for this season. The series, based on the BBC show of the same name, has improved its ratings markedly over last spring's performance.

In its first two airings this fall, the show is averaging a little more than 8 million viewers and a respectable 3.9 rating among NBC's target demographic of adults 18-49. And while it's struggled some to hold onto viewers from its lead-in, "My Name Is Earl" (which is averaging about 13.3 million viewers), it has made a big leap from its performance last spring. Airing in the same 9:30 spot last year, "The Office" drew only 5.4 million viewers per week.
NBC executives have said repeatedly that they're willing to be patient with the show, a faux documentary following the workers at a Scranton, Pa., paper-supply company and their aggressively clueless boss, Michael Scott (Carell). The single-camera show features no laugh track and mines much of its humor from the often uncomfortable situations Michael creates.

Still, the network initially only ordered six new episodes for 2005-06. The additional order brings "The Office" in line with the standard number of episodes for new series and shows picked up after a midseason tryout.
