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).
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.
