I don't understand why people aren't watching Parks and Recreation. It was created by people who worked on ginormous hit The Office, stars Amy Poehler and a hilarious supporting cast, and is really, really funny. If you've seen it before and dismissed it, give it another chance.

With all these pilots streaming into networks recently, it's become a feeding frenzy for actors looking for more work. There have been plenty of announcements made recently, let's take a look.
Until today, we've know very little about the upcoming NBC sitcom starring Saturday Night Live's Amy Poehler.
