We know it's a couple days away but we couldn't help talk up this Thursday night's NBC lineup: "The Office" will be back with 2 brand new episodes at 8pm and 9pm with the series premiere of Amy Poehler's highly anticipated "Parks and Recreation" sandwiched in between the two at 8:30pm. Check out the website of Pawnee, Indiana, the location of "Parks and Recreation" and of course the video snippets.We can't wait because there haven't been many options for programming this week.

News from Renewaland: TV Land orders 3rd season of "High School Reunion" with a Las Vegas high school as its target.

Also in news: Boston NBC WHDH has officially bowed under pressure to run Jay Leno's new show. Seems like kind of a shame in our book.

The TV Junkie Plan: "Fringe", "Trust Me", "Modern Toss"
