Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are set to exit the NBC comedy Parks and Recreation this season, a source confirms to E! News. According to Buzzfeed, who first reported the departure, their characters Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins will exit the series in the 13th episode of the season, just in time for February sweeps. ABC?s evening newscast, ?World News With Diane Sawyer,? bested the longtime leader, ?NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams,? among 25- to 54-year-old viewers last week, ending a nearly five-year-long streak by NBC and renewing interest in the once-predictable ratings race. It looks like Fashion Star won't be walking down the runway next year. NBC entertainment president Bob Greenblatt confirmed at the summer TCA press tour that the Jessica Simpson reality series Fashion Star has been canceled after two seasons.
