I watched all of S1, but I don’t think I’ll watch S2 if it doesn’t get better soon.
I really enjoyed it. Maybe it helps to be in L.A. (although this year, I got out of town on December 17).I thought it was by far the weakest of the three NBC Christmas sitcom specials. It wasn't a very funny episode. Little humor in people wanting to get home, and the mayor just keeps them around. And the barely sweet ending did nothing to make up for 28 minutes of unfunny.
I'm not an LA guy, but I lived in SoCal for a couple of years and I got a lot of the references and I think it was really geared to how "different" the season is in warm weather areas than in a more "traditional" setting, and I liked all the references to such. The plot has been done many times before, but I always say, that if done well, it doesn't matter if it's been done before. I guess you and I are in the minority and liked it.I really enjoyed it.

I never got the appeal of "Superstore". Without Amy what was the point? And I liked her because she had been Ugly Betty.This last week was it for me. SP deleted.
Sitcoms that have stupid in them can be a challenge for the writers. Done well, eg Superstore, they can be really entertaining. Done poorly, eg American Auto, they are unwatchable.
