Amy Poehler, like many of us, is still bummed about the end of Parks and Recreation.

The comedienne stopped to chat with Ryan Seacrest during the Emmys red carpet and explained what she misses most about being on set of the hit series.

"I miss the people. I miss the cast and hanging with them every day and getting to see their great faces and the work and playing play Leslie Knope. I loved all of it when I did it," she explained.

Poehler added that part of what made the show such a smash success was the cast's chemistry, saying, "We were really lucky we had such an amazing cast and everybody improvised the same way and spoke the same language but I think it's tricky…it's the difference between a good show and a great show."

Andy Samberg, one of Poehler's fellow Saturday Night Live alums, is taking the stage to host tonight's big show and Seacrest asked whether she prefers to be a spectator or an emcee like she was for the Golden Globes with Tina Fey.

"I very much prefer tonight," Poehler dished. " I can get a little drunk and Andy is going to do a great job!"

So there's that! And a little spoiler alert for all of you out there: Poehler and Samberg may have something up their sleeves for viewers tonight.

"We talked about a little idea that I may end up doing if time allows…Andy is very long-winded," she joked before adding, "He's going to be great."
