Nepotism usually works the other way around.
But when it came time to cast actors to play his parents on his new Netflix comedy Master of None, Aziz Ansari found no one who could do the job better than his own mother and father.
"I found my father to be uniquely funny in the role. [And] no one else felt like my real mom," Ansari told reporters of his mother, Fatima, and father, Shoukath, at a Television Critics Association panel at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

Amy Poehler's wonderful Parks and Recreation ended its seven-season run on NBC Tuesday night with an hour-long finale that wasn't strictly necessary: The season had been so good – and so good at building to this goodbye – that the show seemed to have already sneaked out of the room during a game of peek-a-boo.

Is there an incorrect way to consume alcohol? How should you approach your job? Parks and Recreation has you covered.

Though Parks is coming to an end on Tuesday, the residents of Pawnee, Indiana, have provided many pearls of wisdom that fans can clutch when the inevitable Recreation-al hangover hits.
Just know that, however you drink up this knowledge, you're definitely doing it right.

After seven brilliant seasons, Parks and Recreation airs its final episode on Tuesday night.
Though often overlooked despite its longevity and critical acclaim, the writers – with showrunner Mike Schur at the helm – created a rich universe filled with well-rounded characters whose quirks were celebrated often in the form of joke callbacks that were as hilarious on the second, third and 10th time they were told as they were the first.
In advance of the series finale, we thought we'd revisit seven of the best recurring jokes on Parks.
