Good Ratings News for 'Parks and Recreation'

Parks and RecreationThe good news is that NBC's Thursday night line-up has increased in the ratings, particularly for the Amy Poehler vehicle 'Parks and Recreation' which has just hit a season high. The bad news is that they're still in fourth place for that night.

Remember the good old days when NBC on Thursday nights was "Must See TV"? NBC is probably yearning for those days, or possibly any day that isn't right now. There are still regulatory hurdles to jump through before the sale to Comcast is truly finalized; what are the network executives telling their future potential bosses? "Yes, we suck but we're doing better."

Back to 'Parks and Recreation': Amy Poehler is one talented lady (which is evident even from way back in her 'Saturday Night Live' and 'Upright Citizens Brigade' days)and it is a good thing that she is getting the recognition that she deserves.

Agreed. P&R, The Office and 30Rock are the best comedies on TV. It's a shame that lame laugh track comedies (*cough, cough CBS*) outperform these excellent shows. I guess it's the dumbing down of America.

Thursdays on NBC is STILL "must-see"--easily the funniest shows on TV are on in that two-hour block. It's just a shame that not enough people have figured this out yet.

This show is funny as hell. I never remember to watch it. Thursday is packed at that time already.
