Critics Consensus

Superstore's talented cast and obvious potential are slightly overshadowed by a tonally jumbled presentation and thin, formulaic writing.

Tv Season Info

"Superstore" is a humorous look at what goes on behind the scenes of a typical big-box megastore. With a smart, dependable store supervisor named Amy (America Ferrera), an aggressive, often inappropriate assistant manager named Dina (Lauren Ash), a pregnant, clueless teenager named Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom), and a variety of other personalities, the store's employees have become like a dysfunctional family. When an optimistic, dreamer named Jonah (Ben Feldman) is hired in the first season, the group dynamic begins to shift in unexpected ways. Also starring Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, and Mark McKinney, with guest stars including Dan Bucatinsky and Eliza Coupe.

Critic Reviews for Superstore Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (19)

Like the type of operation it represents, Superstore has a little bit of everything, not all of it good, but there are gems to be had in a few departments.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Golden Globe winner America Ferrera is as charming as ever as the overly dedicated assistant manager who tries to rein in a crew that's supposedly too wacky, but none are really allowed to let their freak flags fly.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Not good enough in the first two episodes. With a cast this outstanding, here's hoping for improvement by January, and beyond.

Top Critic

A playful cross between The Office and Family Guy.

Nov 30, 2015 | Full Review…

For the most part it's about as much fun as camping out overnight in a freezing ice storm to snare a Black Friday discount on a Darth Vader toaster. Although some people really do seem to get into that.

And yet! Superstore is delightful! Good, even, in its way! The show is, despite and very much because of its shortcomings, extremely successful as a piece of pop-cultural confectionery.

Jan 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Haven't you always wondered what goes on behind those "Associates Only" signs in the big box stores? Evidently it's a lot of funny stuff -- just as funny as NBC's Chuck with Zachary Levi, but without all the spying and secret agent business.

Apr 7, 2020 | Full Review…

"Retail hell" has never been so much fun.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

NBC's workplace comedy Superstore isn't the most original of shows -- you can feel its desperate attempt to make Ben Feldman and America Ferrera the new Jim and Pam -- but it's enjoyable enough for what it is.

Apr 6, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

It's confident, if not groundbreaking, funny if not gut busting. A breezy comedy that finds the right moments to introduce topics worthy of deeper thought. More than anything, though, it's fun.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It's better than an unadvertised special and more fun than a deep discount on Black Friday.

Apr 6, 2020 | Full Review…

Whenever the duo are on screen together, Superstore is irresistibly charming.

    Most new series struggle with the first season but the characters are likable enough to get it through

    The writing is good and it is a funny show. Characters are relatable- if you ever worked retail like me you will get this show on another level!

    Its really hard to grab my attention with comedy but this pulled me in immediately
  • Sep 05, 2020
    I am writing for Australia and I have only seen two episodes of Series 1. I am horrified at the way staff speak to each other in the store. In Australia this kind of behaviour would be grounds for bullying and inappropriate work behaviour. You can be funny without showing children and impressionable adults that it ok to bully and use swear words when addressing your fellow employees, look at the office and the great American TV comedy show Getting on, staff can fight, make up and treat each other with respect without being spiteful. It sets a terrible example to viewers and the young. Cheers from Oz.

    I love this show! Every episode is hilarious! It some of the best TV 2020 for sure!

    I just finished the fifth season of this show, and I literally have no words. This show never fails to amaze me. Superstore is absolutely hilarious, however I feel it's at its absolute best with certain episodes that get serious and cover Controversial topics. I get plenty of laughs out of each episode, but every now and then (often the season finales) just get really intense, and it just blows me away every time how the writers brilliantly balance comedy and real world issues. You can just tell this show has a lot of heart put into it, and the cast has a lot of fun filming. There's tons of shows out there that have this very similar concept, of taking an ordinary work place and mixing it with some "whacky" character's, however Superstore is one of the best (I'd say even up there with the office) and is definitely my favorite show right now

    Decent with medicore humor

    amazing show that im glad to discover, Superb cast and the comedy is for everyone.

    Not funny, cheap knock of trying so hard to be the next "Office" but fails miserably.

    I'm in France, so I think I am watching the first season. I've seen 3 episodes so far because there is nothing else on television, but this show sucks so bad. I'm guessing that the next seasons are better, but so far, what I'm seeing is the worst attempt at a sitcom ever made. In spite of some highly talented actors, this show sucks.
