I literally fast-forwarded through every Nellie scene this week. I will stop watching if remains. That makes me sad, but it's true.

Catherine Tate is an excellent addition to this show and should have been added after all the interviews took place. Her comedic genius and impeccable delivery are key to keeping the Office going. Others may dislike her now, and even cringe at the sight of her character, but the acting weight she brings to the show is something that Ed Helms lacked. It was unfortunate how they decided to terminate the character of "Andy", and it may have been better to keep him on the show, but Helms has a growing film career and so has likely left the show for good reason. Tate's character is still fairly new and so still finding footing with the other characters and audience, but given Tate's potential, I think the Office can come out shining in episodes to come.

I too find the Nellie character extremely annoying -- to the point that I'm not even going to bother watching the show anymore until I hear that she has left - permanently. This latest episode I saw was supremely disappointing. It is utterly sad to think that the interim shows with Will Farrell are much more entertaining that the crap the writers have given us these past several episodes.

What needs to change?
1) Ditch Nellie
2) Get back to the mockumentary theme -- doing real semi-office work with the pranks
3) Get rid of the non-stop perversion -- homosexual themes, penis jokes, etc.

Andy is boring as f***. Like or hate her, Nellie makes the show more interesting, just as Michael Scott in the beginning. They'd be stupid to get rid of her.

I've hated the Nellie Bertram character since it started in those Florida episodes but today was the first time I googled "Nellie Bertram awful" to see if other Office die-hards like myself agreed and I am so happy that such an overwhelming amount of them do! When she walked in the door to take over Andy's job actually made me angry! Even worse, the fact that all of the other characters are accepting it makes me even more mad!

Perhaps the writers are just setting up a monumental episode where she's kicked out of Scranton to justify things but in my opinion it's a risky move because I'm having a hard time even watching lately and I'm not the only one.

She's absolutely not funny in what she says or her delivery. Her presence is unnecessary and annoying. I hope to God NBC is seeing these complaints because I really want to enjoy The Office again.

I agree with everyone here. The office may have jumped the shark with this ridiculous character. The office is off DVR until Catherine Tate is gone. What an awful, awful decision.

Make that 12 out of 40. Nearly 4 to 1 people agree that Tate is the worst thing that ever happened to The Office.

12 out of 38 comments were even mildly positive to Nellie, and i was generous in what counted as positive. This comment officially makes it 12 out of 39. Ultimately, there were more threats to stop watching and demands to cancel the show than there were people in favor of her sticking around. The people have spoken, and I agree.

Thank heavens I'm not the only one that hates Nellie. Sorry, "Office" - you just got bumped off of the DVR by Swamp People. Won't watch this show again until NB is N/A. Also read as "GONE".
