Despite a ratings decline last year, the Superstore TV was not cancelled. In fact, it got an early renewal. Now that the fourth season is upon us, can this quirky little show regain some of the audience it has lost, or at least hang in there until it has a good-sized syndication package? Will Superstore be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An NBC sitcom, Superstore stars America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Bloom, Mark McKinney, and Lauren Ash. This comedy centers on the diverse employees at a super-sized megastore called Cloud 9. Amy (Ferrera) is the glue that holds the place together while newer hire Jonah (Feldman) wants to prove that work doesn’t have to be boring. From bright-eyed newbies and seen-it-all veterans to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, the crew tackles the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales, and nap-worthy training sessions.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night.
