Well, this sucks for fans of 'Park and Recreation.' Turns out the NBC sitcom is going on a bit of a hiatus for the next three weeks. The peacock network pulled a big schedule switcheroo that will start this Thursday, Oct. 24.
Instead of the Pawnee gang this week, viewers will get an episode of 'The Voice' (well, Adam Levine's not too shabby to gaze at ). Next week, the Halloween episode of 'Parks and Rec,' will be bumped for a 'Saturday Night Live' spooky special, and then on Thursday, Nov. 7, a live episode of 'The Voice' will air (again, more Adam Levine isn't necessarily a bad thing).
One possible reason for the shuffle? NBC recently canceled 'Welcome to the Family,' which had aired after 'Parks and Rec,' so it seems the network has a gap to fill in its Thursday night lineup. Unfortunately this also prolongs the show's much-anticipated 100th episode extravaganza. But, at the same time, it does kind of extend the presence of Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, who are due to leave on the show's thirteenth episode of the current season.
Of course fans of the show are now wondering if we will ever catch the sitcom's Halloween episode. Even if we have to wait until November to see it, I'm sure the Pawnee peeps' choice of costumes will be worth the wait.
'Parks and Recreation' airs Thursdays at 8/7c.
