Store manager Rylan Clark-Neal invites pairs to his supermarket to go wild in the aisles with the heavily trailed 2019 gritty reboot of Supermarket Sweep. If our shoppers are very very good they could be walking out with £3,000.
Really like Rylan, really like Supermarket Sweep but there are question marks. 8pm feels like quite an odd timeslot to strip an hour-long game on a daily basis, especially one as fluffy as Supermarket Sweep – Pointless and The Chase‘s biggest opponents are each other – this will have to compete with whatever the bigger channels are putting out in prime-time and if it’s not must-watch it might end up being not-watched. We also wonder what sort of tone this is going to have, relatively straight or heavily ironic piss-take? Either could work but falling between the two stools may end up pleasing nobody.
Also it’s an hour of Supermarket Sweep. How are they going to fill the time? We’re promised celebrities and new games but will they fit with the format?
Not long until we find out. I’m pulling for it, but it’s not a guaranteed success by any means. Let us know what you think in the comments.
