SUPERSTORE
November 30, 2015  | By David Bianculli

NBC, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SNEAK PREVIEW: This is a warning, not a recommendation. I loved America Ferrera in Ugly Betty, and love her still. But this new NBC sitcom, which premieres officially on January 4 after this oddly scheduled 10 p.m. ET double-header preview, is bad and unfunny – even by NBC’s current low standards. It takes place in a generic we-sell-everything superstore, but all it’s really selling is cardboard characters and lazy, recycled jokes. Midway through the first of two episodes tonight, Ferrera’s character, who stars as the store’s floor manager, reacts to a disaster by screaming, “Shut it down! Shut it all down!” I suggest you take her advice. Or, in advance, take mine, and don’t watch at all.
