On Monday, October 21 TVLine revealed that the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation" will be going hiatus immediately, airing for two weeks in November and then not returning until January. The network made the decision to preempt the show in favor of live events and other canceled shows.
The episode planned for this week is being preempted for the battle rounds on the singing competition "The Voice," and the Halloween themed episode will be replaced with a "Saturday Night Live" special. The next week will be filled with the live results show for "The Voice," which will air at 8 p.m.
The show will return next month, airing back to back episodes on Thursday, November 14 and 21 to make up for the hiatus. However, the rest of the season will not begin airing until January 2014 at the earliest. The long break is due to football games and several television specials which are scheduled to air on NBC.
"Parks and Recreation," which currently airs on 8 p.m. on NBC will begin airing the rest of season six at 8:30 p.m. when it returns on 2014. The Pawnee group has been pulling in steady ratings for the network, but not enough to compete with the smash hit singing series or live television specials. The series stars Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, and Chris Pratt.
