The NBC Comedy The Office is better without Michael Scott played by Steve Carell. The character was unfunny and mean, and the show overall is better without him there. The other characters are funny enough to be able to carry the show by themselves.

Debate will consist of 5 rounds.

Numbers do not lie:
After Steve Carell's final moments on The Office last NBC quickly jumped in to promote the rest of the shows season. "There are still three episodes left!" the previews shouted, flashing images of big-name guest stars Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, and Ricky Gervais while pleading viewers not to abandon the show.

Well, it didn't work.

The Office aired its first Carell-less episode and the ratings dropped double digits, according to The Hollywood Reporter.The week after Steve Carell made his exit on The Office, ratings dropped 17 percent, landing NBC in fourth place in the key 18-49 demographic A new episode of Community on NBC rated 1.4 (3.5 million), followed by a rerun of The Office's first episode featuring Will Ferrell, which rated 1.1 (2.7 million). The new episode of The Office rated 3.5, with 6.8 million viewers tuning in.

Personal opininion:
Not since Seinfeld has a show made me laugh so hard and smile so much. And now without Michael Scott it is just reaching to be half as funny. When you take the main character out of a sitcom it dies. Just look at two and a half men.

The best moments from early seasons of the show were the ones where you felt so embarrassed for Michael that it would make laugh until you cry.
