NBC Shuffles Thursday Comedy Schedule

at . Comments

In comedic TV scheduling news, NBC has decided to give its new comedy series, the Amy Poehler vehicle, Parks and Recreation, a big push by sandwiching it between new episodes of The Office when it debuts on Thursday April 9, at 8:30.

The Office had originally been scheduled to finish its 29-episode Season Five run with a double bill on May 14, but due to the double episodes around the Parks and Recreation (formerly Public Service) launch, it will now go out with a single installment.

The change will leave 30 Rock an episode up, however, meaning that the satirical sitcom starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin will fill the May 14 gap with its own finale.

Two many funny shows = scheduling conflicts to figure out when is best to air them all. Guess that's a good problem to have for the Peacock on Thursday evenings.

The Office Quotes

Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation.

When I was in college I used to get wicked hammered. My nickname was Puke. I would chug a fifth of SoCo, sneak into a frat party, polish off a few people's empties, some brewskies, some Jell-O shots, do some body shots off myself, pass out, wake up the next morning, puke, rally, more SoCo, head to class. Probably would have gotten expelled if I had let it affect my grades, but I aced all my courses. They called me Ace. It was totally awesome. Got straight Bs. They called me Buzz.
