NBC Picks Up 4th Season of Comedy; WE tv Acquires Madam Secretary

Superstore

Renewal on aisle 4 ... NBC's Superstore is coming back for a 22-episode fourth season. Season to date Superstore has grown +6% versus one year ago in adults 18-49 (1.7 rating) and +3% in total viewers (5.195 million), according to "most current" ratings averages from Nielsen Media Research. Superstore is also a potent performer on alternative platforms, growing to a 2.9 in 18-49 when 35 days of non-linear viewership is included in the rating. The series delivers a strong upscale audience, indexing at a 119 among adults 18-49 living in homes with $100K+ incomes (100 represents an average concentration of those homes).

Superstore was NBC's #1 comedy across digital platforms in 2017, including the NBC app, Hulu and VOD. Superstore centers around Amy (America Ferrera), the store's most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together. Jonah (Ben Feldman), who is often the target of his colleagues ribbing, is joined on the floor with his fellow associates, including sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn), the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos) and sweet teenager and new mom Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom). Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney), the affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist. From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans, to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions.
