TV Tonight: Parks and Recreation


The majority of you were into last week's premiere of Parks and Recreation — but will you be tuning back in tonight? I liked the pilot well enough, but now I'm curious to see what the Parks and Rec team does with the characters we met last week.

Tonight, they're canvassing. Leslie wants to present her pit-into-park idea to the public, so she decides to take a door-to-door approach. Naturally, that doesn't quite go according to plan, as Leslie has a knack for saying just the wrong thing at just the wrong time. (I hope to stop comparing this show to The Office soon, but does that sound like anyone else we know?) I have a feeling this episode could have some funny moments for Aziz Ansari as Tom, as he wanders away from the rest of the group and uses his own questionable recruiting tactics. I wonder if they'll be like the ones he attempted to use on Ann in the pilot?

Parks and Rec got decent ratings for the premiere, and I'd love to see the show keep up its momentum tonight. To check out a preview clip, just read more.
