Here, you'll find a list of current TV shows that are just ripping off The Office. Given the series did stellar in the ratings and snagged some serious critical acclaim, it makes sense many creative types would be inspired by The Office. There's nothing wrong with that, as artists all have their influences. However, inspiration can easily cross the line into a straight up ripoff and these current TV series are clearly just copying The Office.
Which TV shows ripping off The Office will you find on this list list? The confessional cameras and documentary style shooting of Modern Family make it similar to The Office. Ricky Gervais continued to create hilarious television with Extras and Derek, but some feel that show is a little too similar to the show that originally granted Gervais fame. Other good shows that are The Office ripoffs include Hello Ladies, Party Down, and The Muppets.
Which of these current TV shows trying to be The Office is the most shameless rip off? Vote the most derivative series up to the top of this list and add anything you feel is missing.
