Getting to know 'Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America'

If you watched last Thursday’s episode of “Parks and Recreation,” you saw the release of Leslie Knope’s complete guide to Pawnee called “Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America.”

We wanted to chat with Knope herself about this extensive text on Pawnee's history and the sites to see, but she wasn't available. So, we went with "Parks and Rec" co-creator Michael Schur.

Schur explained that writing a book about Pawnee "seemed like a natural fit," since they have "a lot of back-stories for different aspects of the town that we don’t have time to put in the episodes."

'Modern Family' brings more wow

There's no doubt that the MVP for Wednesday night's episode of "Modern Family" is Gloria. After all, she helped bring "more wow" to Jay's presentation to a hotshot client ("Freaks and Geeks'" Samm Levine, great as ever).

She also helped out Claire, who was on the fence about running for city council against (so glad to see more of him too!) David Cross' character Duane Bailey.

Phil also had some words of encouragement for his wife: "If you wanna fly I'm not gonna hold your feet to the ground, I'm gonna be the one to push you off the cliff."
