'Parks and Recreation' goes on the shelf for nearly a month
Yes, it's been a rough few weeks for "Parks and Recreation," NBC's last holdover from the golden days of comedy on the network.
As pointed out by some media observers, Disney Channel's "Dog with a Blog" got more viewers (3.5 million) than the Kristen Bell-starring Oct. 3 episode of "P&R" (3.1 million.)
Now this: NBC has put the series on the shelf for the November sweeps, elbowed aside for the battle rounds of "The Voice." A surprise perhaps because TVline.com, which first reported the story, pointed out that a Halloween-themed episode was also put on ice.
Because it's unlikely a Hallow episode will air (say) at Christmas, this could mean NBC will eat the entire episode -- amazing if true.
