'Parks and Recreation' finale react: Election results are in!

‘Parks and Recreation’ season finale: So, what happens if Leslie wins?

Tonight brings an end to the storied city council campaign of Leslie Knope, whose troubled election path has seen funeral-crashing bus tours, awkward pie-centric assassination attempts, bowling alley brawls and a pair of pitch-perfect competitors in guest stars Paul Rudd and Kathryn Hahn. Still, we’ll find out tonight whether Leslie manages to beat the odds and land a spot on the Pawnee city council… but then what happens?

Sure, we all want to see Leslie emerge victorious (because when Leslie is sad, the sun burns out and all the world’s puppies turn into monkfish). But if “Knope We Can” can in fact conquer–and Leslie winds up with a victory–what would that mean for season five? I’ve got a few theories on the election outcome: READ FULL STORY

EW's Morning Bite: And the best sound bite from last night is...

Submitted by Ashley:

“Everybody says they care about the issues, but at the end of the day all anyone wants is free clothing shot at them from a cannon.”

Jimmy Fallon and Amy Poehler reminisce about their favorite (fake) film collaborations -- VIDEO

Poignant, daring, and set entirely within the walls of one seriously mysterious attic, Who Is “Mark Pelpy”? — a CGI-filled thriller starring Amy Poehler and Jimmy Fallon — is one of film history’s greatest mysteries. Or, at least, it might be… if it were real.

Both Poehler and Fallon had an opportunity to exercise their improv comedy muscles on last night’s Late Night. The game: Fallon pulled out a succession of ridiculous posters for fake movies he and Poehler had supposedly starred in together. The host and his guest would then spend a few minutes riffing on each faux flick, filling in plot details and making up behind-the-scenes tidbits. (Connect Four, for example, was shot in Yugoslavia. Naturally.)

Want to know more about the pair’s fantasy epic (Chronicles of Holkroft 3: Quest for the Krimson Amulet), or their British comedy of manners (Her Royal Heiny)? Of course you do! Check out the entire bit below.


'Parks and Recreation' returns! No more reasons to glum, sugar plum!

Who’s that person who loved last night’s Parks and Recreation? That’s-a-me!  (Still hungry? Check out these deleted scenes.)

So gather around everyone — that includes you, Mr. Hamster Penis — for a quick rundown of the big moments from last night’s episode, with some helpful context:

1. Is there anything sexier than a guy who fills his house with amenities? If there is, I haven’t found it. And the most shocking aspect of my newfound appreciation for men who own soft blankets and have refrigerators full of coconut water? That Tom is the person who helped me come to this conclusion. Congrats, Tom! You’ve finally done something sort of right. Ann certainly loved it, too. Yes, that’s still happening. But for how long? (See. No. 4) READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally join Americans for Marriage Equality campaign -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally are the latest celebrities to show their support for gay and lesbian marriage by filming a video ad for the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization, and its Americans for Marriage Equality project.

Offerman, who wed Mullally in 2003, begins, “You know, the night Megan and I got married, she actually thought she was marrying Cedric the Entertainer.”

“I sure did,” Mullally says.

Watch their plea below. READ FULL STORY

Play ball! Nick Offerman versus Craig Robinson in New Era's Chi-town feud


Last year, Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski acted out baseball’s most passionate feud — Yankees vs. Red Sox — in a series of New Era cap commercials. An apartment building was set ablaze, animals were abused, and pants were soiled. More important to this impartial observer, neither rival went on to win the World Series. (So begins the New Era jinx!)

This year, Major League Baseball’s official hatmaker is staying within the NBC family, but shifting the bloodsport west, to the City of Big Shoulders. In the first of what we can only hope are a series of ads, Park & Recreation‘s Nick Offerman (Cubs) and The Office‘s Craig Robinson (White Sox) exchange digs at the Chi-town corner pub, the Dividing Line. It seemed like a fair fight, but then Robinson had to go all Chicago Way on the Cubbies, crossing a line that just shouldn’t be crossed. Take a look. READ FULL STORY

Aziz Ansari releases 'Dangerously Delicious' (and seriously NSFW) promo — VIDEO

Aziz Ansari is standing up to cable by bringing his latest standup special directly to his fans. In lieu of shopping his comedy routine out to cable networks, the Parks and Recreation actor has opted to release his special Dangerously Delicious directly on his website. Beginning today, fans can download or stream the hour-long routine for just $5. “Uncut, uncensored, with no ads and no bleeps,” promises Ansari. “Normally a special like this would cost $20 to get on DVD.”  Well, he has a point. Watch the rather NSFW preview below. READ FULL STORY

Adam Scott: Funny, adorable, sexy, or all of the above?

Everyone I’ve chatted with today who saw Jennifer Westfeldt’s Friends With Kids over the weekend enjoyed it — and leading man Adam Scott. Where we differ is how we think of Scott’s appeal: As someone who saw him do plenty of sex scenes in the 2007 HBO series Tell Me You Love Me, I have no problem thinking of him as sexy — which is why I love that Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) lusts after his character Ben on Parks and Recreation and the two of them name bedroom moves after politicians. Ben’s a sweet, smart, funny, sexy guy who should be getting some. But friends who haven’t seen Tell Me You Love Me, say they think of Scott more as “adorable” because they only associate him with Parks and Recreation and Party Down. A few gave me a break and said he is “adorable with sexy moments,” having now seen Friends With Kids. What do you think PopWatchers? Let’s take your (racing) pulse in the poll below. READ FULL STORY
