Described as 30 Rock meets Superstore, THE VALUE SHOPPING NETWORK follows a type-A journalist who is forced to take on a job hosting on a failing home shopping network after accidentally setting her news studio on fire and becoming a viral sensation. Our readers singled the pilot out as a classic workplace sitcom in a unique, uproarious setting. The laughs come a mile a minute, while the fantastic protagonist and quirky ensemble cast make the series feel like home in the best way.
