Retta and Aziz Ansari on 'Parks and Recreation'

"Aziz is the busiest man in Hollywood. I don't have time to go get massages with Aziz and he doesn't have time to get mimosas with me... So no, we don't have Donna and Tom's relationship. I don't think there's anyone who has Donna and Tom's relationship."

- Parks and Recreation actress Retta reveals that unfortunately due to her co-star Aziz Ansari's hectic schedule, they don't spend as much time together off screen as their characters do in the NBC comedy.

Someone Stole ‘Parks and Rec’ Memorabilia in Paris

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, Internet, News

Leslie and Ben locks in Paris

A hardcore Parks and Recreation fan (or an insanely opportunistic eBay seller) seems to have disappointed fans of the show - as well as some of the stars themselves!

In the 100th episode of the NBC comedy, Amy Poehler's Leslie and her husband Ben (Adam Scott) travel to Paris and adorably left their own "Leslie and Ben <3" lock among the many others at the Pont des Arts. One fan happened to visit the site to see the lock and was appalled to find that someone had cut the fence and stolen the lock!

Rob Lowe to Stay with ‘Parks,’ Won’t Join CBS for ‘Men’

Rob Lowe, Parks and Recreation

Keep him on NBC, whatever it takes! The executive producer of Amy Poehler-powered Parks and Recreation has stepped forward to refute Internet rumor that Rob Lowe will take over for the recently-fired Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.

And thank goodness. Lowe’s hilarious Parks character has made the show better than ever in season 3. Producer Michael Schur says there is “no truth” to the rumors whatsoever that Lowe will move from NBC over to CBS.

We hear they’re getting sued, anyway, so maybe it’s best to stay off the Warner Bros. lot for now.

Hey NBC, Why No New Parks and Rec?

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, Gossip, Video

Park and Recreation, truly one of TV’s most under-appreciated shows, still hasn’t returned from its Season 2 cliffhanger and we’re dying to see how Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope is going to handle another year at the Parks Department.

So…how much longer do we have to wait, already?

According to those in the know, Season 3 should be on NBC “in January or February,” though the network is keeping mum on a definite date. As November drags on, it’s becoming clearer that we’re going to have to keep waiting for more of Aziz Ansari’s fantastic one-on-ones with the camera.

The cast and crew of Parks originally expected to return to air in September, which put a huge strain on the show’s leading lady Amy Poehler (who became pregnant with her and Will Arnett’s second child). Currently, they are shooting the 12th or 13th episode of the season, though they have no idea when any of them will be put on the air.

MONDAY (5/10)
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS, 8pm):  “The friends crash an upscale party attended by prominent intellectuals, and Ted tries to show off his brainier side.” His theory on the success of “The Naked Man” strategy proved to be an effective ice breaker.
