TV picks for Nov. 14:  "Parks and Recreation,” "The Crazy Ones,” "Ground Floor”

  • Updated: November 13, 2013 - 2:26 PM

Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar play father and daughter in “The Crazy Ones.”

Vote ‘yes’ for Knope

“Parks and Recreation” (7 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11) returns after a short hiatus with two new episodes that should tell us once and for all if Leslie Knope gets to stay in political power. The sitcom is firing on all cylinders, but we’re already worried about how the series will carry on without Rashida Jones, who departs at the end of the season.

Let’s go crazy

I wasn’t crazy about the first few episodes of “The Crazy Ones” (8 p.m., WCCO, Ch. 4), but it’s gotten better in recent weeks as it’s managed to rein in Robin Williams and give the rest of the supporting cast plenty to do. Sarah Michelle Gellar, in particular, is proving she can do a lot more than vanquish vampires.

Going up?

Creator Bill Lawrence reunites with his “Scrubs” star John McGinley in “Ground Floor” (9 p.m., TBS), a fairly standard workplace comedy that’s blessed with some sexy, scene-stealing performers. The first few episodes don’t quite jell, but Lawrence also started off slowly with “Cougartown,” which is now one of the best ensemble comedies on the air.
