There won't be a dry eye in houses of fans of "The Office" Thursday night as the mockumentary series (9 p.m., NBC10) signs off after nine seasons.

The one hour, 15-minute episode -- DVR users, take note -- is preceded by an hourlong retrospective and followed by a full episode of "Hannibal" (10:15 p.m., NBC10) with limited commercial interruptions (don't worry, they've sold plenty of commercial time for "The Office"). That "Hannibal" episode, by the way, might appeal to music lovers -- but only those with strong stomachs.

Also on Thursday:

-- "Superstorm Sandy: A Live Townhall" (8 p.m., WHYY 12) looks at the hurricane's aftermath and the recovery from its devastation.

-- At 7:30 p.m., BET's scheduled a timely presentation of the 2010 movie "Lottery Ticket," in which a young man (Bow Wow) tries to hide a ticket worth $370 million from people who might want to steal his winnings.
