On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, we discuss the newly announced cast for the latest season of Dancing With the Stars, finish our Parks and Recreation marathon, and check in on the latest West Wing Weekly offering. Here's your road map:

00:39 Dancing With the Stars "Ryan Lochte, you've at the least embarrassed yourself on an international stage and at worst done something that could land you in a Rio lock-up. What's next?" "I'm going on Dancing With the Stars!" This is the show we know and love, folks. Embrace it. (As mentioned, see the Twitter list of DWTS gossip from @kdoucet83 Terri's been following. And you can see the full list of teams on the DWTS site.)

8:58 Parks and Recreation marathon — We chat about the final four episodes of the series — "Pie-Mary," "The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show" (which includes the ad above), "Two Funerals," and "One Last Ride." And then we look ahead to the Sports Night marathon we'll be starting next week. You can watch it for free on the ABC site if you don't mind commercials less clever than the one for Verizon Chipotle Exxon.

24:33 West Wing watch— Following along with the West Wing Weekly podcast, we watched "Mandatory Minimums."

For next week's episode, we'll be watching the first four episodes of Sports Night and the West Wing Season 1 ep "Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics." Watch along!
