After its solid first season came to an end on Monday night, NBC did the inevitable and renewed Superstore for a second season. The workplace comedy got a solid preview after The Voice in late fall and surprised everyone by premiering in January to a 1.8 demo in the very difficult Monday 8pm slot. It ended up dropping down from there but remained easily ahead of its companion sitcom, Telenovela, and The Biggest Loser, which aired later in the night. It had to completely self-start and it did so in an era where NBC has had a huge amount of difficulty launching comedies. Coupled with decent reviews, there is something to work with for NBC.

Superstore joins The Blacklist, Blindspot, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Chicago Med, Law & Order: SVU, and Shades of Blue on NBC's renewal list for next year. The rest of the scripted shows are toss-ups (The Mysteries of Laura, Grimm, and maybe Undateable) or as good as dead (Telenovela, Truth Be Told, The Player, and You, Me, and the Apocalypse). Still premiering this season are Crowded, Heartbreaker, and Game of Silence, and the second season of The Carmichael Show.
