Thursday marks the crucible of the entire network fall 2013 season, when more major shows ("Grey's Anatomy," "Big Bang Theory") launch and when more viewers tune in than just about any other day of the year. This is a huge night for the networks. So, to make this navigation a little bit easier, I'm going to post some of tonight's major events, so you know what the heck is going on, and how to avoid an iceberg or two.
And... let's start with "Parks and Recreation." The great NBC sitcom is entering its sixth season tonight, as the entire P&R department heads to London for a full hour episode, 8-9 p.m.
Whilst there, Leslie (Amy Poehler) learns that politicians are revered in England -- cute inside joke; they're loved over there about as much as they are here -- which puts her in a dark place, knowing she is not in her own little world.
