NEW YORK (AP) -- James Spader's tenure at "The Office" will be short. Spader is leaving The Office after a just a season. The producers say Spader only had a commitment for last season's finale -- but his role as CEO Robert California was expanded. Spader was brought in for some star power when Steve Carell left at the end of last season. The producers add Spader never wanted to stay for more than a year.
