Finally got around to watching the last few eps of the Thursday night lineup
and of all the funny things I saw from those shows, the "gunshot" ring tone was my "howl out loud and rewind twice" moment. I love this show and the NBC Thurs. night lineup overall.

i really don't understand the viewing audience. both community and the office have higher ratings than parks and rec if my info is correct. yet there it sits sandwiched between the 2. how can people watch these 2 and then skip the show that is the best of the 3.

I loved the look of pure unbridled glee on Ron's face every time they talked about cutting some government department or program. His character is just perfect.

Why anyone would switch to something else on Thurs. night is beyond me. I do know this show has had sand kicked in it's face, completely unjustifiably. There were a lot of times when it would be the funniest show that evening.

Ron's my fave, but I really enjoy this cast.

Parks and Rec is infinitely more funny to me than the Office. But I'm going to assume that many people interested in Parks and Rec tuned in for its initial 6 ep run a year ago and were as completely turned off by it as I was. I gave it two episodes to sway me in this latest season and found myself pleasantly surprised at how much improved it was.

That was definitely a defining episode for how I thought about Ron. That and the episode where he fought for the rights of the candy company to make everyone fat. Good stuff.

Great photo! Was it a screen cap or publicity photo? It looks so clear if it's a cap.
I'll miss this show over the summer, can't wait for fall.

Still contemplating whether I could down a whole Swanson.


Think I'd start feeling kind of weird about a 1/3 of the

I believe Parks and Rec is gone until mid-season, because NBC thinks Americans want to watch a comedy about people that were given jobs previously held by Americans...in this economy. And they say NBC are stupid?!

I'm not sure, it looks sharp so I'm guessing a publicity photo.
(Although, HD screen captures look good as well.)

don't understand what you're saying here. no p&r until after new years, and what show are you referencing that will take its time slot?

Not exactly. In the fall 30 Rock moves to 8:30pm and Outsourced at 9:30pm. No matter what I suspect Outsourced won't last (even if it's good), although it's based on a movie which isn't half bad (but most people have never heard of it, but you can get it on Netflix).

And then Parks & Rec will be back, maybe at 9:30, or maybe back at 8:30.

IMDB link to the original Outsourced movie:

Well I'm very disappointed to hear this.


I loved nbc's thursday night lineup from last year. Sounds like
they're breaking and splintering it apart to try and shore up
all the other garbage they program. Don't think this will help
nbc's ratings, and certainly won't enhance these great 3 thursday
night comedies.

Parks and Rec may not surivive this insult.

Will miss you Ron.

Considering that now CBS is going go with comedy from 8-9pm this fall (8pm: Big Bang Theory, 8:30pm, Sh** my dad says), CBS is poised to hurt Community's 8pm audience, but with 30 Rock at 8:30pm, it's a formidable ratings competitor to the new CBS show (Which i don't think will do great).

And then with 9:30pm, NBC wants to pump up a new show that could benefit from a post-Office time slot. I personally can't blame them, but turning an existing show into a mid-season replacement is never a good thing.

no wonder nbc has the worst ratings of any network. they have a gold
lineup on thursdays and they're going to mess around with it and probably have
worse ratings than they did last season.

and what does a mid-season replacement mean in terms of time

are we looking at november or february.

can't believe they're pulling this show just as it hits its prime

For mid-season replacements, I assume we are looking at two scenarios:

1.) Parks and Rec takes over a show that gets canned early (maybe Outsourced, or even a show not on Thursdays).

or

2.) Parks and Rec has new episodes shown when the network is usually showing repeats or puts in a hiatus for a show. That would be the more typical Jan/Feb debut.

The thing is, before the announcement came that Parks and Rec would be a mid-season replacement, the producers thought the show was going to be on in the fall and in light of Poehler's pregnancy, they scrambled to film episodes for next season (not sure how many). So once a spot opens up, they'll be ready to start airing new Parks and Rec in the fall/winter.

hope they don't lose their writers and other creative folks because of
nbc's idiocy. this season p & r was as well written as anything i watched
in prime time.

I had the last 8 on DVR and finally got around to them the past 2 days and wow. I'd say it rivaled 30 Rock for best comedy. Ron Swanson is perfect.

This hurts. Create one of my favorite characters in a sitcom
in years and then abandon him.

NBC sucks. Maybe another network can pick it up like FOX and give it the respect ( a whole season ) it deserves.

I tried a couple of episodes in the first season and gave up on this show. I understand that the second season is good, and NBC is conveniently repeating it sequentially so far. My question to you is, was this seaon good from the beginning, or do I have to wait a while before it takes off? If so, how many episodes in?
