NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ put some literal and figurative madness into its sixth season finale, tossing a Jon Hamm cameo into the brisk final sequence that saw the Pawnee gang jumping through time to 2017. Now, with ‘Parks’ final bow on the horizon for 2015, NBC confirms that the ‘Mad Men’ star will return in his role as the ever-incompetent Ed.

Beloved NBC sitcom 'Parks and Recreation' is coming to an end after six seasons, and star Amy Poehler isn't taking it so well. Sure, sure, the funny lady is excited about the future for both her and her super-mega-all-star cast, but that doesn't mean she needs to go out on a graceful note. Actually, Poehler is determined to light the place up before she says her final goodbyes.

Did you know that Amy Poehler has a new book coming out later this month? Oh, well Amy Poehler has a new book coming out later this month! We're really excited. 'Yes Please' hits shelves on October 28, and as if we weren't already pumped up enough, we got a peek at the 'Parks and Recreation' star's author photo. It is, as you might imagine, hilarious. But you don't have to imagine it. You can see it for yourselves weeks in advance.

It’s always bizarre to re-watch the pilot episode of a long-running television series, especially a situation comedy. Both ‘Friends’ and ‘ER’ are celebrating the 20th anniversaries of their debut over the next few days, but watching the ‘ER’ pilot almost feels like watching a movie. The pace of ‘ER’ came first and the characters were established later (we didn’t get to know too much about Noah Wyle’s John Carter, other than that he was new and that he was scared). ‘Friends’ didn’t have this luxury. The first scene of ‘Friends’ takes place in a coffee shop, so we really have no choice other than to meet these people. And the thing is, in this first episode, these people are kind of awful.

As if we needed further proof that the folks behind 'Parks and Recreation' are the absolute coolest, they have now convinced filmmaker Werner Herzog to guest star on the upcoming seventh and final season. Or maybe this thing we call existence is all just a part of the ongoing experimental art exhibit called Werner Herzog's life, and we're just living in it. Maybe he'll just say yes to anything. Maybe he's available to film and narrate bar mitzvahs. Maybe he's just never been asked.

Dismayed though we are that 'Parks and Recreation' will come to a close with the impending seventh season, NBC looks to be giving the revered comedy the send-off it deserves. To wit, past series stars Megan Mullally and Natalie Morales have been confirmed to return for important final season arcs, while the full season 6 gag reel has made its way online as well.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Chris Pratt may be showing off his body more than, uh, usual in this week's new Marvel release (evidence below, and that's just a small sample), but just because the actor got in shape for the part doesn't mean it's the first time he's used his body for a role. Oh, no! Turns out, Pratt broke away from the bonds of clothing before, particularly on NBC's 'Parks and Recreation.'

Earlier today we saw NBC delivering the first full trailer for its upcoming 'Constantine' adaptation, but the network had plenty more to give in advance of the Upfront presentation tomorrow. Not only has NBC set the basic structure of its fall lineup, breaking up its Thursday comedy lineup and keeping 'Parks and Recreation' on the bench for the moment, but the network has also released full trailers for its other offerings, including Katherine Heigl CIA drama 'State of Affairs,' and 'HIMYM' alum Cristin Milioti's 'A to Z.'

It seemed sort of inevitable given the way things have been heading with 'Parks in Recreation' over the last couple of seasons, and with chances of renewal always uncertain, we knew that the season 6 finale could've easily served as a series finale. But now it's official: Leslie Knope and the gang will say farewell as 'Parks and Rec' makes season 7 its last on their own terms.

Of all the series we'd never have expected to shake things up with a time jump, NBC's 'Parks and Recreation' went lightyears ahead in "Moving Up" to its sixth season finale last night. And while NBC hasn't confirmed the seventh season as its last, producer Mike Schur got on the horn to discuss the show's surprising fast-forward, including one very 'Mad' man cameo, and what it means for the future Pawnee of 2017.
