In my opinion, “The Office” is one of the best comedies ever. I wanted to see what everyone else thought so i transcribed all the data from IMDb so I could visualize it. Here you have IMDb data for every episode of “The Office” with visualizations of all the scores, special episodes, data on episodes with and without Steve Carell, and a breakout of scores by director. You can review the interactive graphic and quick facts below.

[accordion title=”A Note for Mobile Users” load=”hide”]How to integrate mobile users in the visualization realm continues to be an issue for users and creators. At this current time we are only publishing desktop ready versions of our graphics. That doesn’t mean we don’t want you to see them. We just hope that you use the sharing features below to facebook, tweet, or email yourself the link so you can enjoy the visualization later.[/accordion]
