Naming anything is difficult, but when it comes to a show, the pressure is immense: you have to appropriately capture what the show is, and, if possible, do it in the exact correct amount of words so it can be easily referenced, but not be forgettable.

For NBC’s SUPERSTORE, the title fits. It’s clear it’s about a big-box store and about the ensemble versus singling out a character or characters. But when Justin Spitzer was creating the comedy, he originally had a very different name in mind. Read more

Attention, Cloud 9 shoppers (um, viewers): Thursday’s SUPERSTORE finale is nearly here, and major things are going down.

“A big town hall is happening,” SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer previews of the episode titled, appropriately, “Town Hall.” “We finally meet the CEO [played by Brian Howe] who is coming to the store.”

While initially there is excitement (at least from Glenn and Dina) about their store hosting the important meeting, things quickly take a turn. “The group realizes that they can’t talk about everything—certain topics are off-limits, including Myrtle,” Spitzer teases. “They start to learn that Myrtle was fired [for questionable reasons]. So it’s our group using the opportunity to see if they can get her job back.”

The worlds of NBC’s GOOD GIRLS and SUPERSTORE collide starting this week.

GOOD GIRLS’ Beth (Christina Hendricks), Ruby (Retta), and Annie (Mae Whitman)—who have found themselves taking drastic (criminal) steps to provide for their families—visit a Detroit-based Cloud 9 for a pivotal, ongoing, job in Monday’s episode of the drama. (Cloud 9 is the big-box chain store where the NBC comedy is set; the SUPERSTORE location is in St. Louis.)

Cloud 9 has appeared outside of SUPERSTORE in the past (it popped up on THE MINDY PROJECT), but this quasi-crossover has a special connection: SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer and GOOD GIRLS creator Jenna Bans are married.

SUPERSTORE, one of the best comedies currently on television, threw grenades into multiple relationships in last week’s episode.

In “Safety Training,” Amy’s (America Ferrera) attempt to befriend Kelly (Kelly Stables)—AKA Jonah’s (Ben Feldman) new girlfriend—backfired when she took credit for Kelly improperly hanging signs and was forced into safety training. To get Amy out of it, Dina (Lauren Ash) planned on playing footage of Kelly’s work mistake…and instead played a mishmash of footage which included Amy and Jonah’s kiss during last season’s tornado.

Meanwhile, Mateo (Nico Santos) was injured by a falling sign, which helped out. After he kept turning down corporate’s offer for injury compensation, finally Jeff (Michael Bunin), his ex/the store’s distract manager, insisted on giving him money. But Mateo finally admitted he was undocumented and his inability to share that with Jeff was the real reason they broke up.

So where does the show go next? SUPERSTORE creator Justin Spitzer shared a few teases about what’s in store. Read more
