'Parks and Rec' Series Finale: 7 Moments So Perfect They Made Us Cry

24 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Cue up the emotional GIFs, the Parks and Recreation series finale was an emotional roller coaster of big laughs, big guest stars and even bigger heart-twistingly nostalgic moments.

NBC

As the Parks crew tackled one last menial mission, fixing a broken swing, we flashed forward to their future lives. Some were pure comedy gold (Jean-Ralphio faking his own death and Craig as a still-manic old man), but mostly this nostalgic trip to the future just made us wish we had seven more seasons with our favorite Pawnee residents.

"When we worked here together, we fought, scratched and clawed to make peoples’ lives a tiny bit better," Leslie told her team in the finale. "What makes work worth doing is getting to do it with people that you love."

TV Review: ‘Parks and Recreation’ Ends on a High Note (Spoilers)

24 February 2015 8:01 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Parks and Recreation” always made the fine art of creating great television comedy look easy. For seven seasons the NBC series set an impossibly high benchmark, and now leaves the air without any true peer on network TV.

That it never attracted a massive audience or garnered the industry kudos it deserved doesn’t really matter. The show always took its narrative cues from the big-hearted optimist at its center, can-do civil servant Leslie Knope (brought to life by the indomitable Amy Poehler).

With a bona fide warmth that ran contrary to the trend of ironic small-screen comedies, “Parks” thrived as an eternal underdog. A series not just to watch for laughs, but to champion and love. (And in the age of social media, ideal fodder to tweet, like, Gif and meme with everyone else in the know.)

Permanent existence on the renewal bubble is probably the exact reason why »

Parks and Recreation's 7 Best Recurring Gags: From Calzones to 'Treat Yo' Self'

24 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After seven brilliant seasons, Parks and Recreation airs its final episode on Tuesday night. Though often overlooked despite its longevity and critical acclaim, the writers - with showrunner Mike Schur at the helm - created a rich universe filled with well-rounded characters whose quirks were celebrated often in the form of joke callbacks that were as hilarious on the second, third and 10th time they were told as they were the first. In advance of the series finale, we thought we'd revisit seven of the best recurring jokes on Parks.Literally Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) was Lih-truh-lee the most enthusiastic person in Pawnee. »

Parks and Recreation is ending tonight, which means our lives are officially ruined.

(Just don't invite anyone named Garry, Jerry, Larry or Terry because they are the worst and will, without a doubt, ruin everything.)

14 Recurring Characters We Love on 'Parks and Rec'

23 February 2015 7:09 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

As Parks and Recreation takes its final bow, we’re also saying a tearful goodbye to the Pawnee residents who shaped the town and gave the series a special place in our hearts.

As much as we adore Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman), some of our most beloved moments, (and favorite one-liners) in the series came from the eccentrically quirky minor characters. From Li'l Sebastian to Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz), we’re breaking down our favorite recurring characters on Parks and Rec -- in no particular order.

1. Bobby Newport

The adorably dim-witted son of the Sweetums empire, Bobby -- played by Paul Rudd -- was first introduced as Leslie’s opponent for City Council. His charming and naive strategy on the campaign trail almost cost Leslie the election.

2. Dennis Feinstein

Dennis Feinstein (Jason Mantzoukas), “whose real name is Dante Fiero but he changed it because Dennis Feinstein is more exotic in Pawnee,” is the head »

‘The Imitation Game': The White House’s Oscar Favorite

18 February 2015 5:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Based on cryptic responses from inside the White House, President Obama and the first family’s viewing plans on Oscar night must be a closely guarded secret.

What can be safely assumed, though, is that executive branchers will be pulling hard Sunday for one nominee they can (almost) call one of their own — “The Imitation Game” scribe Graham Moore.

An Academy Award nominee for adapted screenplay, Moore becomes the Obama Administration’s de facto inside man because his mother, Susan Sher, served as First Lady Michelle Obama’s initial chief of staff and “confidant-in-chief” in the first years after the Obamas’ move from Chicago to Washington.

Michelle Obama lauded “The Imitation Game” and other films and TV shows last month for helping to break stereotypes about gay people. The film depicts Alan Turing’s heroic efforts to break a crucial Nazi code during World War II, even as he was ostracized for his homosexuality. »

Joe Biden Gets Too Close for Comfort With New Defense Secretary's Wife, Channels Everyone's Creepy Uncle

17 February 2015 1:53 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Watch out! Joe Biden certainly isn't wasting any time giving the new Defense Secretary's wife a warm White House welcome. Er, but someone should probably tell him to ease up on the touchy feely-ness? Maybe? Here's what went down... Stephanie Carter was on hand to watch her husband, Ashton Carter, get sworn in for his new role and as he delivered his speech to the press, the Veep ended up stealing the whole show. Biden was seen putting his hands on Stephanie's shoulders and whispering sweet nothings into her ear behind the podium while Ashton addressed the media. Sure, we can chalk it up to Biden just being super friendly, but this seems to be a habit for the meme-able »

Kayla Mueller, American Isis Hostage, Remembered by Friends, Family and Others

11 February 2015 5:10 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Family and friends, as well as President Barack Obama, paid tribute to the late American Isis hostage Kayla Mueller after her family revealed the heartbreaking news on Tuesday that they had received confirmation of her death. "Kayla has touched the heart of the world," her aunt Lori Lyon told reporters gathered in her hometown of Prescott, Arizona, the New York Times reports. Added Kathleen Day, who heads the United Christian ministry at Northern Arizona University, where Mueller, 26, graduated from college in 2009: "It's not that she's so angelic. She saw things and did what she could, whatever she could, however she could. »

Look at how adorable little baby Pete Wentz was! The Fall Out Boy musician once shared a throwback pic on his Tumblr page, showing him as a little toddler in the arms of none other than Vice President Joe Biden, and it's just now getting the attention it deserves. Wentz originally posted the image back on Election Day in 2008, in honor of Barack Obama and Biden's big win, along with a lengthy heartfelt message about his involvement in the campaign. "I don't really want to force my views on anyone. I'm just some guy in a band who doesn't spell that great much less have a degree in anything," he began by sharing.

Fall Out Boy fans are dedicating their next play of "Thnks fr th Mmrs" to none other than Vice President Joe Biden.  This past weekend, Tumblr users — seemingly for no particular reason — unearthed a 2008 blog post from bassist Pete Wentz, in which he explains his ties to the happy warrior. The entry was published on Nov. 4, 2008 — the day American voters cast their votes in the presidential election between Barack Obama and his running mate Biden and John McCain and his VP [...] »

President Obama Weighs in on DeflateGate: 'If You Break the Rules, Then You Break the Rules'

1 February 2015 2:25 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"We make beer. [I'm the] first president since George Washington to make booze in the White House." That's just one of the things that President Barack Obama talked about during a pre-Super Bowl interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie Sunday. Guthrie, 43, stood in the White House kitchen with the president, who explained that the honey ale they were tasting was made with honey from the White House gardens. This was after he diplomatically avoided giving Guthrie a prediction for the big game, abstaining since the Chicago Bears aren't involved this year. But he did weigh in somewhat: "It's gonna be close, and the »

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' - Jk Simmons and D'Angelo

31 January 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jk Simmons seems like a pretty inspired choice to host “Saturday Night Live,” with his acting versatility baked into his lengthy track record in both the most serious of dramas and silliest of comedies. He’s been in seemingly everything, but his recent award-winning turn in “Whiplash” is getting him the kind of attention not often bestowed upon him. Look for at least one sketch tonight parodying that film, and at least one or two others that reference one of his many, many, many roles. I’m primarily curious tonight about the show’s focus. After a bad episode with Blake Shelton, and the fortieth anniversary show right around the corner, how much attention can really be on this episode? The worst case scenario is that there are a lot of half-formed ideas that don’t really reach fruition. But the upside could be that this could be a weird, »

Happy birthday, Ellen DeGeneres! Vice President Joe Biden helped the comedian kick off her b-day week with a surprise visit to her talk show.

‘View’ Hosts on Obama’s State of the Union Attitude: ‘He Was So Cocky’ (Video)

President Barack Obama’s spunky demeanor in Tuesday night’s State of the Union address dominated the first part of ABC’s “The View” panel Wednesday.

“He did a little bit of trash talking, which is always the best part of the State of the Union. It’s very scripted, rehearsed, and they write the speech weeks in advance,” said co-host Nicolle Wallace, a Republican political analyst. “There was an off-the-cuff part that — no matter your party — was pretty priceless. »

President Barack Obama Delivers 2015 State of the Union Address: #YesWeTan Trends Before John Boehner Even Sits Down

20 January 2015 6:46 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The White House made sure that Sen. John Boehner and President Barack Obama's sensible navy suit would get their fair share of attention tonight. Hours before the commander in chief was set to deliver his 2015 State of the Union address, the White House tweeted out a pic of Potus' now infamous tan suit with the caption, "The President's suiting up for the big speech...#YesWeTan." Having missed the initial tweet, forgive us for assuming that the Internet was talking about Boehner, considering his signaturely bronzed visage is easily blending into the leather chairs he and the ever gleeful-looking Vice President Joe Biden sit in while the president speaks. Let's just say, »
