Supermarket Sweep history
Supermarket Sweep is not a new show. In fact, the original version made its debut during the black and white era in the 1960s on ABC and became a global sensation.
Then, again in 1990, creator Al Howard revived the television show, but it was aired on Lifetime Network.
After 27 years, Supermarket Sweep’s latest version was launched in October 2020, with Jones as the host.
Meanwhile, the second season is set to premiere this Sunday, September 26, at 9 pm (ET) on ABC, just after the premiere of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune Season 2.
