NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ to Finish On Tuesdays This Winter

NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” will come and go quickly this winter, returning to kick off its final season on Jan. 13 — two nights after “Parks” star Amy Poehler co-hosts the Golden Globes on the network — and ending its run six weeks later.

The net announced Monday that the critically acclaimed comedy, whose previous six seasons bowed on a Thursday, will finish on Tuesdays, airing back-to-back episodes in the 8 o’clock hour.

“Parks” will air in the timeslot currently occupied by “The Voice,” whose fall season ends this month, and serve as lead-in to 9 o’clock comedies “Marry Me” and “About a Boy.” The music contest returns to the lineup in late February, and its Tuesday premiere on Feb. 24 will provide a strong lead-in to the hourlong “Parks” finale.

Starring Golden Globe winner Poehler as a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Ind., “Parks and Recreation” has been Emmy Award nominated and is a winner of the Television Critics Assn. Award for best comedy, AFI Award, American Comedy Award and the highly prestigious Peabody Award.

The series also stars Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir and Retta.
