"You're On with Ron" should be a regular show.

Pawnee local TV clearly owns.

other than Ron's talk show (which was amazing) this episode didn't work for me... it felt off somehow.

One of my favorite lines ever.

Agreed. Ron was great but I was just unengaged by the whole benefit/disaster storyline. I did like Lesley slamming Jerry for not dressing up, though.

Andy's responses to the polygraph test were hilarious.

Ron's show was pretty awesome. Loved the slow pullback to reveal the host passed out on the floor.

"Love fades away. But things...things are forever."

Did not see that coming in the end though glad there will be 1 hr of Parks and Rec next Thursday.

Maybe Amy was missing SNL a little and did all those characters like the news anchor and the meteorologist in the closing credits.

I suspect there'll be a future episode in which Leslie will be under investigation for using Pawnee resources and a town-run charity event to host her own wedding.

They shouldn't have blown the wedding twist in the commercial.

Producer's Cut was great. Rabbit scene was funny as was the extended talk show sequence with Ron.

Loved the episode, but "You're On With Ron" was by far the best bit. I would so watch that.
