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:
One war makes way for another as the incredibly durable Foyle's War, in its seventh Masterpiece Mystery! season on PBS, transitions from post-World War II intrigues to the ethically murky spy games of a burgeoning Cold War. "I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit," grumbles former police DCS Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen, radiating crisp intelligence and decency), who once again is denied his dreams of retirement when MI5 spooks reel him in, fresh off the boat from America.
After only 10 episodes, Orphan Black made quite an impression on viewers, which makes the eight-month wait for Season 2 that much more difficult.
Over the course of its first season, Orphan Black weaved a tale of mystery and intrigue as to why a group of clones — all played brilliantly by Tatiana Maslany — came into existence and who is pulling the strings. Ultimately, Cosima's digging uncovered that each clone was actually trademarked, making them intellectual property of the Neolutionists with no control over their own lives.
Orphan Black Season 2 Scoop: New clones and Cosima's illness
Suffice it to say, the question of freedom will be raised in the upcoming second season, which goes back into production at the end of September. TVGuide.com caught up with Maslany on the set of Parks and Recreation — where she'll appear as a love interest for Aziz Ansari's Tom — to get the scoop on what's in store for each of the clones, including poor Alison, who inadvertently signed her life away in the finale. The 27-year-old actress also discusses the...

Fresh out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan is not only healthy, but also has a healthy sense of humor about herself. When LiLo took over Chelsea Lately Monday night, we weren't greeted with the pallid blonde who's fueled tabloids for years. Instead, Lohan was back to the bubbly redhead we fell for in Mean Girls.

Question: NCIS has been a ratings juggernaut for CBS for many years. It has consistently been the top-rated show. But I wonder if that is going to last. ABC has scheduled Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opposite NCIS this fall. I know S.H.I.E.L.D. has a lot of positive heat going for it at the moment. It's also directly tied to a series of blockbuster movies. And now the very popular Cote de Pablo is leaving. Her character Ziva's chemistry with Tony has been a major draw. I know the show is going to have to very careful in who they hire to take her place. Could this be the season that knocks NCIS for a loop? Right now, it's looking a bit vulnerable. What are your thoughts?

Tatiana Maslany better catch up on her sleep. Season 2 of Orphan Black is going to keep her even busier than before.
At the Comic-Con panel for BBC America's cult favorite sci-fi series, co-creator John Fawcett revealed that the clones club is expanding. "I'm not surprised if we unveiled a few more clones in Season 2," he said to the audience's very vocal approval. "I don't think that's letting the cat out of the bag."
