Sunday nights, before new episodes of The Rookie, my roommate and I play along and shout at our TV as we watch Leslie Jones host Supermarket Sweep. While I’m not much for trivia, I am a person who shops at a grocery store, so Supermarket Sweep is the perfect gameshow for me to enjoy.
Coming up on Sunday, January 23rd, Jones is met by a couple of fun and adorable West African guys from Texas, Edmund Adjei-Baah and Iniemem Edet, who picked their team name “Team Fufu” because the description applies to them as well… a “tantalizing, scrumptious, West African meal!” Watch an exclusive clip below from this Sunday’s episode, “Another Man’s Trash Is Another Woman’s Treasure!”
ABC is bringing back the classic TV game show Supermarket Sweep, hosted and executive produced by Emmy® Award-nominated comedienne and actress Leslie Jones. The fast-paced and energetic series follows three teams of two as they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win big cash prizes. The original format aired on ABC from 1965-1967 and went on to become a global sensation. It was adapted in 13 international territories and, most recently, relaunched in the UK. “Supermarket Sweep” is produced by Fremantle. Executive producers include Leslie Jones, Hunter Seidman and Jennifer Mullin, Alycia Rossiter and Wes Kauble.
Supermarket Sweep airs Sundays at 9:30pm on ABC.
