Despite having a small audience and low ratings, Parks and Recreation has survived for six seasons. Will it see a seventh or will it be cancelled instead? Time will tell.
Parks and Recreation follows Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and others in the parks department of the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. The rest of the cast includes Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Jim O’Heir, Retta, and Rob Lowe
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
