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.
3/19 update: This show has been officially renewed for the 2014-15 season.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
