Parks and Recreation Not Returning to NBC Schedule Until January

The Injustice: Parks and Rec Shelved Until Midseason

The following post was submitted by Shannoninsf to Pawnee Citizens: The Parks and Recreation Fan Group in the Buzz Community.

Let me make myself clear: I am a TV addict and pop culture junkie and thus love trying out new TV shows. I was even looking forward to this coming Fall's new crop of comedies and dramas . . . until I heard NBC's plans for the Thursday night comedy block. To help new show Outsourced succeed, Parks and Recreation has been shoved to midseason! I had one reaction to this news about my current favorite show, the show that makes me look forward to Thursday nights: blind rage.

Why couldn't they have moved The Office? Or struggling show Community? Since P&R finally got much better in its second season, I'm worried that it may lose momentum if it's not coming back until next January. I understand that this is a move to help one comedy— but why potentially hurt another? Another that I think is the strongest of NBC's Thursday night shows? Anyway, I'll be appreciating each episode until the season finale a whole lot more now that I know I'll have to do without it for so long. Are you guys as irritated as I am?

I think I am one of the only people that don't like Parks and Rec or 30 Rock. I just don't find them funny. Community is a great show. The Office is the one that is struggling, but I still watch.

booo! i love parks and rec and it's my fave of the thursday lineup (haven't gotten on the community bandwagon yet). but if it gives amy p much needed prego time, i guess i'll be patient!

Why are you throwing Community under the bus? It's brilliant and not struggling. Parks and Rec is great, it will survive this.

Maybe now Adam Scott will be able to do another season of Party Down. That's the show I look most forward to. It is perfection.

I think the 2 hour block is perfect as is! Also I agree with the other posters...I thought Community was doing well?

I thought this was so Amy P. could have a nice maternity leave this time around.

Doesn't NBC realize the PERFECTION that is their Thursday night comedy block?! Hopefully no one watches this new show so we can have our P&R back.
