Rob Lowe On ‘Parks and Rec’ Sneak Peek

Can you feel that excitement in the air? Everyone’s smiling in anticipation of the big day, the man we’ve all been waiting for will return in just 37 days. That’s right; Ron Swanson will make his triumphant pine-scented return to television on Jan. 20 with the return of a little show called Parks and Recreation.

It will take its rightful place back in the NBC Thursday night comedy line-up and it looks like the guest star from the Season 2 finale will be around to steal some of Swanson’s manly thunder (yes, I’m aware of what that sounds like, just go with it). Rob Lowe is back, taking his giant horse vitamins, doing pull-ups in his office, being generally perfect and defending his love of concealer? It looks like NBC is pulling out the stops to pull in the viewers for the little show that could, so here’s hoping it works and more people tune in to give Leslie Knope and Co. a chance.

Check out what’s in store for the handsome guest star this season on Parks and Rec.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
