In late 2015, NBC launched a pair of sitcoms on Monday nights — Telenovela and Superstore. Telenovela was cancelled but, to the surprise of many, Superstore did well enough in the ratings to be renewed. In season two, the network is moving the comedy series to Thursday nights, opposite football and The Big Bang Theory on CBS. Will it survive to see a third season? Stay tuned.
Superstore revolves around the dysfunctional family dynamic that forms among employees at the fictional Cloud 9 Superstore. The comedy’s cast includes America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Mark McKinney, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nichole Bloom, and Nico Santos.
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. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

For comparisons: The first season of Superstore averaged a 1.47 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.08 million viewers (live + same day ratings).
Note: The special Olympics episode isn’t counted as part of the show’s second season averages.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Superstore TV series? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
