Pamela Adlon just wants to do her laundry; people really shouldn’t laugh. In any case, it’s sitcoms both conventional and nouveau dominating this week’s What to Watch.
Superstore [NBC, 8p]
The work walkout against Cloud 9 that has started the second season of the always promising Superstore, has been just the plot device needed to bring out the best in the characters, drawing that somewhat missing third dimension from the able collection of actors. Even Mark McKinney’s once-silly incompetent manager has found his (squeaky) voice.
The Good Place [NBC, 8:30p]
Eleanor is working with the man who designed the Good Place, making it harder to remain undetected as an accidental inclusion. Tahani is assigned to help a neighbor find her true purpose, and if we’ve learned anything, that means poor Tahani will face her first failure.
Better Things [FX, 10p]
Sam takes a trip to the plastic surgeon for a consultation which prob will not help her self esteem at all.
