'Parks and Recreation' pics: Louis C.K. returns as Dave, has awkward reunion with Leslie

The bad news is that "Parks and Recreation" has the night off Thursday (Feb. 9). NBC is running two episodes of "30 Rock" instead. The good news is that when "Parks and Rec" returns next week, it will be with an episode that features the return of Leslie's (Amy Poehler) ex-boyfriend, Dave (Louis C.K.). From the looks of these pictures, though, the reunion not so much joyful as it is awkward.As co-creator Mike Schur told us a little while back, Dave, now a cop in San Diego, returns to Pawnee for the Pawnee police chief's (Eric Pierpoint) retirement party. Dave and Leslie run into each other as Leslie is trying to get the chief's endorsement for her city council campaign.Things are cordial enough that Leslie and Dave sit down to a meal together, but even here they don't look all that relaxed.Perhaps that's because Leslie's new boyfriend, Ben (Adam Scott), is also there. Ben, he... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/02/parks-and-recreation-pics-louis-ck-returns-as-dave-has-awkward-reunion-with-leslie.html

Fast National ratings for Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012"The Big Bang Theory" scored a second straight ratings win against "American Idol" on Thursday, leading the one-time juggernaut by better than half a point among adults 18-49 and by about 500,000 viewers in the half-hour they competed head-to-head*.(*The half-hour breakdown, not reflected in the numbers below, is as follows: From 8 to 8:30 p.m., "Big Bang" drew 16 million viewers and a 5.4 in adults 18-49 to 15.5 million and 4.8 for "Idol.")Thanks to a surge in its second half, though, "Idol" still ended up as the night's most-watched show and tied "Big Bang" in the demo.

'Parks and Recreation': Leslie goes negative ... on a voter

Telling a constituent that you're going to introduce your foot to their a** is not a conventional campaign strategy. But Leslie Knope is not running a conventional campaign.Much to Ben's (Adam Scott) dismay, Leslie (Amy Poehler) gets her back up on Thursday's (Jan. 26) "Parks and Recreation" when a guy attending her bowling-alley campaign event walks away unimpressed. We'll grant that coming to such an event just for the beer is kind of uncool, but still -- it's probably best for the campaign not to be making hostile bets with potential voters.It is, however, pretty funny.On the other hand, "funny" only begins to describe the dance Chris (Rob Lowe) does in the second clip after securing a donation for Leslie's campaign. He's not quite as herky-jerky as Elaine was on "Seinfeld," but you'd be forgiven if you utter "Sweet fancy Moses" after watching. (Also, Aubrey Plaza's talking head at the end of the scene is... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/01/parks-and-recreation-leslie-goes-negative-on-a-voter.html
