Community Season 5 ScoopParks and Recreation: Scoop on the season 5 premiere



Here’s some scoop on Parks and Recreation from this week’s (Posted on 9/18/12) Ask Ausiello column.




Question: Anything left to offer on Parks and Recreation? If not, I’ll gladly take something on 30 Rock. Thanks. – Leah


Ausiello: Thursday’s Parks opener will answer the age-old question, “Is Pawnee big enough for two pigs named Tom?” Also, a couple breaks up in the premiere. (Kind of.) And Leslie and Ben do dirty things on Skype. On the 30 Rock front, Jack McBrayer was on my Tuesday morning flight from New York to L.A. I assume he’s out here for Sunday’s Emmys.



Parks and Recreations is one of the best political satires in television history. The shows ratings keep on dropping and so Parks and Recreation needs a good showing this year — a bounce back. The first three season of Parks and Recreations gave NBC solid ratings – between 5 and 6 million viewers a night, but last year, the show dropped to 4.4 million viewers a week.


However, NBC believes in the show, much more than they believe in Community. In May the show was given a full 22 episode order. The fifth season will hit the air on Thursday September 20th, at 9:30pm. You’ll want to catch the premiere titled ‘Ms. Knope Goes to Washington,’ because, well, the show goes to Washington D.C. — It sounds hilarious.
