Primetime Picks… 1/11/18

Jan 11 Posted by in Features | Comments

Tonight Superstore kicks off a fun 2-hour comedy block on NBC. On last week’s episode, the Cloud 9 employees became obsessed with Kelly’s viral video, but Amy couldn’t understand why. However, once she discovered that Kelly and Jonah were dating, she set out to make her own video and prove she was just as likable as Kelly. While she ultimately did manage to create a viral video, it was only because of what was accidentally revealed in the background—a rat infestation in the kitchen. Meanwhile, Mateo learned that there was a referral bonus for signing up new customers for a Cloud 9 card, and started to create fake accounts. Glenn caught on and confronted Mateo, but he kept denying it, digging the hole deeper and deeper as he desperately tried to prove one of his fake customers was real. Ultimately, Mateo confessed, and agreed to let Glenn baptize him. Finally, Dina enlisted Cheyenne to help her dig into the other employees’ social media accounts, looking for inappropriate material.

This show always finds fun new ways to use this talented ensemble cast by pairing up different characters and exploring different dynamics each week. I always have a great time and laugh out loud while watching this show! That said, while Jonah and Kelly make a pretty fun couple, I’m starting to tire of the will they or won’t they between Jonah and Amy. Now that her divorce is complete, it’s time to get those two together!

In tonight’s episode, “Golden Globes Party”, when Amy throws a party to prove how great she’s doing post divorce, she’s forced to enlist Dina and Jonah’s help, and Dina ends up making the ultimate sacrifice. Meanwhile, Glenn and his wife Jerusha are forced to conduct some personal business at Amy’s home.

Tonight I’ll also be watching Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, The Good Place, and Will & Grace.
