Wow, NBC is just going to burn through the 13 episodes by doubling them up on Tuesdays until they run out. Starts January 13 and finishs February 24, 2015.

Mixed blessing. I'll probably re-watch them all 50 times anyway. I'm gonna miss this show something fierce...

This feels like they don't want to air this and are just trying to get it over with as quick as possible. Is NBC's schedule so rock-solid bulletproof that they couldn't find somewhere to fit this in, or are they just trying to run this out quickly so they can get back to throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks?

Then again, wouldn't this be going right through Feb. sweeps? Aw hell, I don't care about the network machinations. I'll just enjoy the swan song for a great show.

For such a great show, they sure haven't treated it as such.

But one thing for sure, I'm glad they know this is the final season, and everything can get closed up with no loose ends.

Remember our circa 2010 threads about Thursday night NBC comedies? Accidental, unwanted excellence at the executive level not seen until the Daniel Bryan storyline.

I half believe that the main reason for the snubbing is that there's just too much of an online Hulu/Netflix following and not enough of a broadcast/cable audience that it's spooking some of the execs who aren't quite ready to embrace the 21st century. But I'm conspiratorial like that...

doesn't NBC own a piece of Hulu? You'd think they would be happy to have the traffic.

Part of it, I think, is that its audience is set. Nobody's gonna start checking out Parks & Rec all of a sudden now. And the new season, with the time jump, isn't designed to be accessible to new viewers - it's more going to be a reward, I suspect, for those of us who've stuck with it. Which makes me happy. If there's anything Arrested Development should have taught us, it's that the funniest shows should stick to their own voice, regardless of whether or not it gains public traction or not. The right audience, if it exists, will usually find it eventually - even if it is small, but dedicated.

Long live Pawnee.
