He isn’t appearing in any Discovery specials this year as part of the network’s annual Shark Week—but he is doing some splendidly ridiculous stuff in this exclusive promo.

'Parks and Recreation': 15 teases for Chris and Ann's farewell episode

You might want to treat yo’self to a box of Kleenex: It is time to bid adieu to Chris Traeger, literally the most optimistic (and fastest) person in Pawnee, and Ann Perkins (Ann Perkins!), you beautiful, naïve, sophisticated newborn baby. Yes, the last episode of Parks and Recreation featuring Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. on NBC, as Chris and Ann ride off together into the Midwest sunset (before Lowe becomes a tennis pro and Jones joins the LAPD).

“It was exactly as bittersweet as I imagined it would be,” executive producer Michael Schur says of filming the pair’s final installment. “It was as bitter and as sweet. And it was as celebratory as you can be while still being a little sad.” How will Knope cope without her best friend? Status: Unclear. In the meantime, Leslie (Amy Poehler) will attempt to send off Ann with an over-the-big-top bash and to make good on an old promise, while Ben (Adam Scott), Ron (Nick Offerman), and Andy (Chris Pratt) find that giving a goodbye gift to Chris is harder than they thought.

Rob Lowe on playing JFK: Presidents since are 'bad actors'

“Every president today talks like him,” Rob Lowe says. “They’re all like bad actors who do variations on that performance. … If we were in a corner I could do every [modern] president’s version of imitating President Kennedy.”

Lowe is on stage at the Beverly Hilton where he’s on a Television Critics Association press tour panel promoting Nat Geo’s Killing Kennedy, the movie version of Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s bestseller chronicling the final years of the president and his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar). The film’s debut later this year will coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death.

Though Lowe wasn’t yet born when Kennedy was killed, he says he has a longtime fascination with the man and his death. “I’ve been following the Kennedy assassination since I was in the first or second grade,” he says. “I’ve read every conspiracy assassination book… I’ve come around to thinking [the Warren Commission] got it right — that Oswald acted alone.”
