“We are extremely proud of ‘Superstore,’ which is one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television today,” said Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment. “Through the show’s expertly drawn characters, our producers and cast do a remarkable job touching on many issues in which audiences can relate. To its credit, not only does ‘Superstore’ make us laugh, but it makes us think as well.”

    I love Superstore. It’s a simple show, but it works.

    Don’t know why people are complaining about writing. It’s a show about working in a retail store in the midwest. It wasn’t the type of show that was designed for deep insightful storylines.

  3. Rena Moretti says:

    In other words: It’s a flop. but we have to renew shows because that’s what network executives do so we’ll renew that one because it’s made by our buddies…

    I not a big fan of comedies in general because they are so far from reality and try to create funny situations that then fail. However, Superstore actually mines silly, stupid situations that actually have occurred. It presents ridiculous situations that the cast and scripts do an excellent job presenting.

    I have seen a few episodes and it is very mediocre. The store manager is annoying. It looks like it’s going to be good, but the writing just isn’t there usually.
