'Parks and Recreation' spoilers: 'Galentine's Day' finds Leslie on the hunt for a new Ann

20 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Fans who attended the "Parks and Recreation" session at the 2014 Paley Festival on Tuesday night (March 18) were given a special treat: A screening of Thursday's episode, "Galentine's Day."

As the title makes pretty clear, the episode sees the return of one of Leslie Knope's (Amy Poehler) most beloved traditions -- although it's hastily brought about a month late in the hopes of finding a replacement for the now-absent Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones).

Expect to see April (Aubrey Plaza) and Donna (Retta) on Leslie's list of possible candidates, as well as a few surprising names who prove that the pickings are slim in Pawnee. And, of course, expect Leslie to handle her vetting process all wrong.

Here are a few more things you can look forward to in Thursday's episode:

- Ben (Adam Scott) newfound friendship with Jerry (Jim O'Heir) makes it hard for him to let the office's usual nastiness towards his buddy slide. »

Watch Aubrey Plaza shock Jim O'Heir with terrible news on 'Parks and Rec' red carpet

19 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is no worse moment for an actor than being fired from a role. Eric Stoltz is probably still raw about what happened on "Back To The Future," and no matter what the reason that happened, he will most likely always be raw about it. When you act, you're laying yourself pretty bare in terms of criticism. When someone rejects a performance, they're rejecting all the choices the actor made. When you're fired from something because it's just not what the director wanted, it has to feel very personal. It must hurt. When we attended the red carpet for the PaleyFest "Parks and Recreation" panel, we were expecting lots of jokes and energy from the show's remarkable cast. Our first few interviews went very well. But when Jim O'Heir stopped to talk to us, we ended up witness to a horrifying personal moment sprung on him at the worst possible time. »

15 things we learned from the 'Parks and Recreation' PaleyFest panel

19 March 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As with Sunday night's "Lost" panel, I stepped in to do a little TV duty this week and attended tonight's "Parks and Recreation" panel at the PaleyFest. I'm not sure there's a group of characters that I like spending time with each week as much as the "Parks" group right now. Pawnee has taken its place right alongside Springfield as one of the most fully-realized comedy communities in TV history. Each year, we learn more about the people of Pawnee and we learn more about the main characters and we just plain dig deeper into the roiling cauldron of weird that is headed up by the great Leslie Knope, played by the also-great Amy Poehler. After a very spirited round of interviews on the red carpet, I headed upstairs where they were just starting to screen this Thursday's new episode, "Galentine's Day." After this, there are only six more episodes this year, »

Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman Make Out Every Season and Other Fun Facts from 'Parks and Recreation' at Paleyfest

19 March 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"She's a responsible, smart woman, but she will drop all of that the minute she can fuck something up. [...] I think that's a really great approach to life." So stated Aubrey Plaza about her character on NBC's sitcom, "Parks and Recreation," the rebellious April Ludgate. The cast -- including surprise guests Nick Offerman and Plaza -- was in rare form Tuesday night at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Moderator Patton Oswalt, who famously appeared as a proud Pawnean filibustering for his beliefs, kicked things off with a few sharp jokes and things kept rolling for the nearly two hour discussion with Billy Eichner (Crazy Craig), Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio), Jim O'Heir (Jerry/Gary/Larry), Retta (Donna), Adam Scott (Ben Wyatt), Amy Poehler (Leslie Knope), Offerman (Ron Swanson), Plaza (April), Chris Pratt (Andy Dwyer), and creator Michael Schur (of the current cast, only Aziz Ansari was absent while on his stand-up tour).

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'Anniversaries'

27 February 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Parks and Recreation" coming up just as soon as I want a banana made of spiders... "Parks and Rec" didn't have to open this season with a perfect episode like "London," but it sure helped, given that the previous season had started to show signs of aging. Similarly, we didn't need a great episode our first time out after the departures of Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe — especially since Ann and Chris were pretty marginal before they left — but it felt very reassuring to return from the Olympic hiatus with such a fabulous installment like "Anniversaries." It's not an episode that does anything fancy: no trips to foreign countries, no last-minute wedding ceremonies, not even a Macklin/Snakehole adventure. It's just a half hour where the stories and jokes are firing on all cylinders, and where everything neatly connects to everything else. Leslie is busy with »

'Parks and Recreation' Season 6 episode 13 recap: 'Ann and Chris' say goodbye to Pawnee

30 January 2014 8:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Are waffles good for soaking up the tears?

On Thursday (Jan. 30), NBC's "Parks and Recreation" aired its big farewell episode to Ann Perkins (original cast member Rashida Jones) and Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe, who moved to Pawnee in Season 2) and it was -- well, it was a tearjerker.

With her mom-to-be bestie due to depart Pawnee, Leslie (Amy Poehler) set about to not only throw Ann (and Chris too, but mostly Ann, let's be real) a goodbye party that crams in every holiday the two would be missing together in the next year -- "Ain't no party like a Leslie Knope party 'cuz a Leslie Knope party is actually 30 parties!" -- but bring it back to the park that started it all and break ground on Pawnee Commons.

After a bit of bureaucratic maneuvering that forced Leslie to secure a local celeb's endorsement for Sweetums' new Dunktastic 3-Point B-Ball Blast »

Russell Johnson, The Professor On 'Gilligan's Island,' Dies Of Liver Failure At 89

16 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Russell Johnson, who stared as The Professor on Gilligan’s Island (1964-1967), died Thursday, Jan. 16, at 89 years old.

Johnson died of liver failure in the company of his third wife, Constance and his daughter Kim.

“He died at home, peaceful; in his sleep at 5:21 a.m. today. He was a very brave guy who knew what he wanted, and he wanted to be at home,” Constance told ABC News.

Johnson is most known for his role as the resident heartthrob on Gilligan’s Island, but he had a prolific acting career outside of the famed comedy, with appearances on various television shows including Wonder Woman and The Jeffersons.

Johnson, who outlived his fellow male stars of Gilligan’s Island, publicly expressed his fond memories of the beloved show and wrote about his love of Gilligan fans on his website:

“I think, what I love most at this point in »

'Parks and Recreation's' Jim O'Heir: Change is coming for Jerry Gergich

11 January 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Hitting 100 episodes is a momentous occasion for a television show. That fact isn't lost on "Parks and Recreation" star Jim O'Heir.

After his NBC comedy celebrated its milestone achievement on Thursday (Jan. 9), Zap2it spoke with the man who plays Jerry Gergich (or Larry or Lenny, depending on the day) who shared his thoughts on the success of the show, where the series is heading in the second half of Season 6 and whether his poor character will start to get any respect around Pawnee.

Zap2it: Congratulations on 100 episodes last night!

Jim O'Heir: I'll tell you, if people don't believe in miracles, then believe in 100 episodes. That is proof enough. We're the little show that just keeps trudging along.

I was going to ask you -- before you got the order for the 100th episode, was there ever a point that you thought the show would hit it, or »

Nerdist’s New Math Web Series Has Lots Of Pi (And Guest Stars)

10 January 2014 4:42 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Actress Danica McKellar is best known for her role in The Wonder Years, but she's also a big time math nerd who has written several books advocating for her favorite subject. Her latest attempt to make numbers fun is Math Bites, a Nerdist web series with lots of educational value and a nonstop slew of guest stars. Math Bites is clearly intended for a younger audience, and while that definitely puts it at odds with some of the channel's other shows, it is lined up to scored lots of views if parents and educators learn it exists. McKellar and Nerdist are clearly taking the Muppets approach to children's entertainment: There's a light and easy tone to appease the kids, and tons of cameos to appease everyone else. The first episode discusses everyone's favorite irrational number (unless you're a big phi fan), pi. The guest appearances are numerous; there's Jim O'Heir »
