Parks & Rec To Go On Hiatus

It looks like Parks & Recreation is getting put on hold for a bit this fall, but should be back again in 2014.

Why shuttle Parks away? It seems that NBC’s goal is to boost the ratings for Sean Hayes’ much-hyped, little-watched Sean Saves the World; specials may be able to do what Parks — a comedy with loyal core viewers but little power as an anchor — couldn’t.

I don’t necessarily have a problem with them putting Parks & Rec on hiatus, it has been pretty rocky so far this season. However, I am in favor of nothing that is done in the interest of a Sean Hayes television show.
