Although Leslie Jones won’t be returning to SNL this season, she will still be gracing our television screens with a reboot of the classic game show Supermarket Sweep, according to Deadline. She will be hosting and executive producing, and the show is already causing a bit of a stir, with multiple networks vying for the project. Fremantle, a British production company, is producing. Supermarket Sweep originally aired on ABC from 1965-67. This revival of the show follows two others, one on Lifetime (1990-95) and the other on Pax (1999-2003). Jones has just retired from an incredibly successful tenure at SNL, and has proven herself more than capable as a host. We can’t wait to watch her yell at stressed-out contestants from atop a pile of nonperishables.
