Monday, FOX delivered news of a third season renewal to “Lucifer.”
Tuesday, NBC shared the same flavor of news with its “Superstore.”
The network has officially ordered a twenty-two episode third season of the comedy.
“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.”
According to NBC, “Superstore” episodes average a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating on a live+7 basis. The performance represents 29% year-over-year growth in the timeslot (with sports programming excluded).
“Superstore” also fares well from a multi-platform standpoint; it was NBC’s top total performer across Hulu, NBC.com and video on demand last year.
