Why is NBC bum-rushing “Parks and Rec” out the door?
A final season of seven weeks of two episodes of week shows that the Peacock can”t wait to get rid of the acclaimed comedy. As James Poniewozik notes, “If you recall the lengthy, loving sendoffs the network gave 'The Office,” ‘Friends,” ‘Seinfeld,' even the low-rated '30 Rock,' this is… not that.

It”s radical.”

“If you ever said there”s not enough sex on pay cable,” says Adam Sternbergh, “people would say you”re crazy, but there”s not enough sex on pay cable. Or at least not enough different kinds of sex. As pay-cable auteurs get over the novelty of setting every other scene in a strip bar (or if it”s a period show, a brothel) just because they can, there”s a real chance to make TV shows about grown-ups having sex or, better yet, TV shows about grown-ups in which just one element of being grown-up is having sex.”
