NBC's Parks and Recreation just celebrated their 100th episode but today news about that show is far less celebratory. File this under: Boo; boo, NBC, boo!
Apparently on Friday when we told you that there would be double doses (back to back episodes) of NBC's Parks and Recreation to fill the slot where Welcome to the Family (RIP) once aired, we didn't have all of the information. As it is coming out now, NBC still does plan to air two episodes of Mike Schur's witty comedy on Thursday nights-- just not until November. Until November, the show will be off the network completely.
Instead of Parks and Recreation's "Filibuster" episode, which featured the conclusion of Tatiana Maslany's two-episode guest arc, airing this Thursday, October 24th, NBC is choosing to put a special episode of The Voice on in the 8 p.m. hour instead. And the following week, Parks and Rec's sure-to-be epic Halloween episode ("Recall Vote") is also being bumped-- this time for a thematically appropriate Halloween special from SNL. But then on November 7th, The Voice is back again with a special live show at 8 p.m.
November 14 and 21 are currently scheduled to see hour-long blocks for Parks and Recreation. For now. We'll let you know if that changes, too.
Will you watch The Voice when it airs on Thursdays? How will you mark the absence of Parks and Recreation? We suggest waffles and bacon and giant sodas. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
