Parks and Recreation kicked off its sixth season with a whirlwind...
Robin Williams and James Wolk
Comebacks are big news this fall — James Spader enjoyed one on Monday with the splashy premiere of NBC's The Blacklist — and nowhere is this more true than on Thursdays, with three high-profile comedy vehicles for beloved stars from sitcoms past. And while conventional wisdom has long suggested that it's easier to create new stars on TV — Sleepy Hollow's Tom Mison, anyone? — than to build new shows around old favorites, what really matters is giving them material that lives up to the billing.
Parks and Recreation is back!
The NBC comedy kicks off its sixth season on Thursday night with a special one-hour episode that sees Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) & Co. headed off to London. It sounds like a jolly good time, but their trip is just one step in Leslie's comprehensive plan to hopefully keep her job. The recall campaign will be the least of her worries when she discovers her best friend Ann (Rashida Jones) will be leaving Pawnee. Way to kick a girl while she's down! TVGuide.com hit the set of Parks to get the scoop on what's in store for Pawnee's Parks Department this season, including the impending birth of Ron Swanson's (Nick Offerman) baby, Ann and Chris' (Rob Lowe) exit and Tom's (Aziz Ansari) new love interest:
Ron Swanson loves meat, wood and meat. He's a man of few words, but when he speaks, it's the most important thing you've ever heard. No, he's not the most interesting man in the world — he drinks scotch, not Dos Equis.

Animation Domination High-Def
Fox's Animation Domination High-Def debuts Saturday (11/10c) with the police officer (voiced by Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman) whose fantastic 'stache is only eclipsed by his fervor for justice. Day? Night? His beat knows no time. He knows no fear.
Even though Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) could soon lose her job as a Pawnee City Councilwoman, she'll go gallivanting off to London in the Parks and Recreation premiere this fall — but for good reason!
Thanks to Chris Pratt — and his rock-hard abs — the NBC comedy will cross the pond to film their season premiere later this month, taking a bulk of the Parks Department with them. To find out why, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Mike Schur, who dishes on all things Season 6, including its 100th episode, Leslie's new challenges, Ron's (Nick Offerman) baby and more!
Aziz Ansari, Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt
It's time to "Treat Yo Self!" because NBC has renewed Parks and Recreation for a sixth season, TVGuide.com has learned.
The NBC comedy, which stars Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, saw...
Parks and Recreation's season finale will feature a mystery so large only one man can take on the case: Special Agent Burt Macklin!
Andy's (Chris Pratt) alter ego will return during Thursday's Season 5 finale (airing 9:30/8:30c on NBC) after evidence is uncovered that someone in the Parks Department may be... pregnant! Before you assume it's Ann (Rashida Jones) and Chris (Rob Lowe), who have been trying to have a baby, don't forget that there are several other female candidates that could come in as wild cards.

Elsewhere in Pawnee, (a possibly pregnant) Leslie (Amy Poehler) will reflect on her first year in city council as the town celebrates Founders Week, (a possibly pregnant) April (Aubrey Plaza) will get some life-changing news and (a definitely not pregnant) Tom (Aziz Ansari) may get the long-awaited recognition he's always hoped for. To get more scoop on the finale, TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Mike Schur:
Jimmy Fallon Late Night
On Thursday night, Jimmy Fallon, Blake Shelton and Nick Offerman dressed as chickens and performed "Ho Hey" as The Lumineers (most likely) never intended — entirely in the language of the friendly fowl.
Following in the footsteps of Camilla and the Chickens, The Chickeneers had everyone shaking their tail feathers with the all-clucking rendition.
Check out their cluckin' awesome performance on Late Night below.
