Andy Samberg to Guest Star on Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation recently got picked up for a third season. If it keeps cranking out impressive guest stars, NBC might as well pick it up for a fourth and a fifth. Following in the funny footsteps of Louis CK and Will Arnett, Andy Samberg will appear in an upcoming episde of the sitcom. The Saturday Night Live veteran will portray Carl, the head of security at a local park. He butts heads with Leslie after someone gets mugged in the area. No word yet on when Samberg will pop up on the show. But there are two words to describe the guest-starring stint: inevitably hilarious. Source Here

NBC Orders More 'Trauma' and Other Shows to Fill 'Leno' Slot

NBC has taken a measure to anticipate the lost of 10/9c hour filler when "The Jay Leno Show" finishes its primetime run on February 11. The peacock is ordering more episodes from its series such as "Trauma" and "Community" and even extending the number of "The Office" and "30 Rock" which have gotten the full 22-episode order. "Trauma", the new medical drama, receives four more episodes although the show is not doing well in the rating. NBC initially wanted to cancel the show after the first 13 episodes but decided later to bring it up to 16. With the new order, the show gets a total of 20 episodes. Meanwhile, critically-acclaimed but equally not stellar in rating, "Community" gets additional three. NBC also orders three for "Law & Order" and two for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Parks and Recreation". This means "Law & Order" will have 22 episodes in total while "SVU" and "Parks" get a full-blown 25 episodes in one season. Conan O'Brien is taking a stance in quitting NBC when it is to be pushed to 12:05 A.M. The host is demanding a compensation for the staff of "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien" when they lose their job. The show reportedly will end its run this Friday, January 22. Source Here

More Mark Brendanawicz to Come on Parks and Recreation

While Parks and Recreation has gotten funnier and funnier over the course of season two, some fans have one complaint about the sitcom: Not enough Mark Brendanawicz! Fortunately, Mike Schur told Entertainment Weekly that this will soon change. Even hinting at a Leslie/Mark romance, he said: We have some big shifts for Mark during the second half of the season, career-wise and romantically. We don't necessarily have specific places we're going with every different relationship. We just follow what's interesting. "I don't think that the final chapter has been written in the Mark and Leslie saga, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they're going to get together. It might just mean that the feelings bubble up in one way or another at some point.' Source Here
