"Parks" matched its highest 18-49 rating since March 8 (while it was still airing in the 8:30 half-hour) and delivered its biggest overall audience since that same date. Against the concluding half-hours of Fox's "Glee," ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" encore and CBS's "Two and a Half Men" encore hour, "Parks" tied for #2 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, was #2 outright in adults and women 18-34 and was #1 among those networks in men 18-34.
