Supermarket Sweep premiere is here, and everyone is ready to go grocery shopping.

The Supermarket Sweep premiere has been a long-awaited reboot. While the grocery shopping game show has had various versions since 1965, this new version should bring a little something extra to the grocery cart. Ready to get shopping?

With Leslie Jones as the host, everyone will expect a lot of laughs in those grocery aisles. The quick-witted host will make the contestants feel at ease. While she won’t be afraid to speak her mind, all the commentary will be in good fun.

If you aren’t familiar with the Supermarket Sweep concept, contestants shop a grocery store and try to get the highest cart total. Unlike a normal trip to the grocery store, these grocery shopping skills are about spending money, not saving money.

While many people love this game show concept, other food TV shows have adapted the idea. The end of Guy’s Grocery Games is similar. Granted, there is cooking skill element to that challenge, chefs are running through the aisles looking for specific food or ingredients.

Given today’s current climate, many people will watch the Supermarket Sweep premiere because it is good food TV diversion. Right now, people could use some lighthearted fun. Watching people run through the grocery store and win money can be quite captivating. Couldn’t everyone use a few laughs right now?
