GMMR TV Awards: Best Series Finale (Planned) – Vote Now!

June 17, 2015 by  
Filed under GMMR Awards

After two weeks of Give Me My Remote readers nominating their television favorites from the past year, it’s time to vote for the 5th Annual GMMR TV Awards!

Most of the categories have five nominees, but due to ties, the number can vary per topic. (And, as a reminder, each category can only have two nominees per show, so only the top two vote-getters from any series moved forward to the voting round.)

Next up: “Best Series Finale (Planned).”

Take a look at your nominees and then vote for your choice below!

PARKS AND RECREATION: The Cast Sings ‘Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian’ on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS

Comments Off on PARKS AND RECREATION: The Cast Sings ‘Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian’ on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS

PARKS AND RECREATION said its goodbye on NBC last night — and how incredible was that episode?! — and after the hour aired, the entire cast appeared on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS.

If you’re a PARKS fan, the entire LATE NIGHT episode is worth watching, but if you need a little more immediate PARKS in your life post-finale, the cast singing “Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian” (and two unexpected people making out) should do the trick…

The PARKS AND RECREATION Cast Set to Celebrate the Comedy’s Series Finale on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS

Comments Off on The PARKS AND RECREATION Cast Set to Celebrate the Comedy’s Series Finale on LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS

parks-and-rec-thumb The PARKS AND RECREATION series finale is (sadly) around the corner, but the February 24th final episodes won’t be the last you see of the gang together: the entire cast has been booked for LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS the night of the NBC comedy’s series finale.

The entire cast — Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir, and Retta — as well as executive producer Michael Schur will be Meyers’ only guests that night, so that LATE NIGHT should be a lovely tribute to Pawnee. (Poehler and Meyers, as you might remember, co-hosted SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’s Weekend Update together for a few years.)

Comments Off on NBC Sets Premiere Date — and Finale — For PARKS AND RECREATION’s Final Season

parks-and-rec-thumbSome bittersweet PARKS AND RECREATION news: NBC has set both its season premiere and series finale dates.

The final season will kick off on Tuesday, January 13th at 8 PM with back-to-back episodes. The show will continue that pattern until it concludes with an hour-long series finale on Tuesday, February 24th, following THE VOICE.

“Mike Schur and Amy Poehler, along with their incredible producers, cast, and crew, have given us one of the great television comedies of all time, and we’re inordinately proud of ‘Parks and Recreation,’” said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt in a statement. “In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to ‘eventize’ the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level. The highly-anticipated one-hour finale will air behind ‘The Voice’ in order to lead the largest audience possible into what promises to be a very special hour of television.”

“Critics, viewers and all of us at NBC fell in love with this endearing, funny, heartfelt show and its authentic cast of characters,” added Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “After seven amazing seasons, saying goodbye to the folks of Pawnee will be bittersweet, so we want to give the show and its fans the most impactful final season possible.”

PARKS AND RECREATION: Jim O’Heir on Larry’s Responsibility, His Bromance with Ben, and the Season Finale

March 20, 2014 by  
Filed under Parks & Recreation

PARKS AND RECREATION’s Garry/Jerry/Larry is often the butt of many jokes (some of which is his own doing, to be fair), but in recent episodes, he’s had moments to shine-ish: when Leslie was MIA during Ben’s surprise early anniversary plans, Larry went along for the (literal) ride, and took her spot in many of the outings; and then when Leslie needed to delegate, she let Larry be responsible for the new Pawnee/Eagleton slogan. (He then, unfortunately, didn’t catch the winning slogan’s misspellings and put the sign with the slogan on it facing the wrong way.)

Before this week’s PaleyFest panel honoring PARKS AND RECREATION, I spoke with Jim O’Heir about Larry’s taste of responsibility, his bromance with Ben (which continues in tonight’s brand new episode), the season finale, and more…
