This game show revival is based on a beloved property and performed pretty well in the ratings in its first season. How will it perform for ABC this time around? Will Supermarket Sweep be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
Supermarket Sweep is hosted by comedienne Leslie Jones and is the latest iteration of the series that debuted in 1965. A fast-paced competition, the show follows teams of two friends or relations. Clad in iconic colorful sweatshirts, the teams compete against one another in back-to-back games using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of food store merchandise. Teams compete for the chance to play in the “Super Sweep,” a race against the clock to find five products in order to win a big cash prize.
