Off target

TBS’ underappreciated comedy “10 Items or Less” proved there are laughs to be had in a struggling store’s aisles, as long as the staff is willing to throw the company handbook aside. “Superstore,” which NBC is previewing before its official Jan. 4 launch, may have a bigger stage than that canceled series, but it’s too generic to attract selective shoppers. Golden Globe winner America Ferrera is charming as ever as the overly dedicated assistant manager who tries to rein in a crew that’s supposedly too wacky. They don’t really let their freak flags fly, a shame because the cast includes the usually more than game Mark McKinney, best known as a member of the Kids in the Hall. Like too many NBC sitcoms these days, this item already feels like it has passed its expiration date. 9 p.m. Monday, KARE, Ch. 11

Very good grief

Charlie Brown may have his problems, but we’ll say this for the ol’ blockhead: He sure ages well. “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (8 p.m. Monday), a holiday tradition right up there with “It’s a Wonderful Life,” is preceded this year by “It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown,” a star-studded celebration featuring Sarah McLachlan, Boyz II Men and Kristin Chenoweth, who won a Tony for playing Sally on Broadway. 7 p.m. Monday, KSTP, Ch. 5

Copy boy

Rob Schneider mines his “I don’t get no respect” status in “Real Rob,” a new series that blends stand-up comedy with exaggerated excerpts from the former “Saturday Night Live” star’s everyday life. In other words, yet another retread of “Seinfeld” with dirty words. Norm Macdonald and David Spade are among his famous buddies in on the joke. Starts streaming Tuesday on Netflix

The land of Oz

How much do viewers want to ease on down the road with a second-tier musical? NBC will gauge viewer interest in a production featuring mostly unfamiliar tunes in the heavily hyped three-hour “The Wiz Live!” The presence of Queen Latifah and Ne-Yo will help, but those stars aren’t anywhere near the level of Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, who starred in the 1978 film. 7 p.m. Thursday, KARE, Ch. 11
