It is on BBC2 where both series of The Office and Extras were shown. Although the BBC offered Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant the chance for Extras to be shown on BBC1, they alledgedly turned it down.

BBC2 typically recieves less viewers than BBC1, and so Extras would have had greater viewing figures if shown on BBC1. The Christmas Specials of Extras was shown on BBC1.
