Parks & Recreation Renewed for Season Three

by at . Comments

Simple, but exciting news for Parks & Recreation fans this week:

The NBC comedy has been renewed for a third season.

This announcement comes approximately four months earlier than usual, which is yet another sign of how far this show has come on its second season. Browse through a few Parks and Recreation quotes to see what we mean.

We never thought we'd ask this - but with one new, hit sitcom and another that's been receiving critical raves this year -  the question must be thrown out there:

What is the funniest Thursday night comedy: 30 Rock, Community, The Office or Parks & Recreation?

Because we've grown to know and love The Office cast and characters on such an intimate level, it's impossible not to rank that show first in the minds of the TV Fanatic staff. But it's getting awfully close all around, isn't it?

As much as I love and adore and am devoted to The Office, I have to say that I now look forward to Parks and Rec more. Maybe because it's newer and fresher. I definitely laugh out loud more at P&R than The Office.
