Employees of Greens and Grains will once again invade our small screens after nearly 10 months since 10 Items or Less
aired its last episode. TBS has finally set the date for the third season of the sitcom on January 6 at 11pm.
10 Items or Less
, for those who are not familiar, is a partly improvised comedy series about a less than successful businessman who returns home to run a family-owned supermarket upon the death of his father. John Lehr
takes the center stage as Leslie Pool, the manager of Greens and Grains who infuses his dorky yet lovable management style to the grocery store.
The show also features an ensemble of colorful characters including Amy Anderson (Jennifer Elise Cox
), Leslie's former schoolmate who is now the manager of Green and Grain's number 1 competitor Super Value Mart, quirky yet soft-spoken customer service representative Ingrid Wakowski (Kirsten Gronfield), the aggressive Yolanda Nelson (Roberta Valderrama
), butcher Yolanda Nelson (Roberta Valderrama), the sweet stockboy Carl Dawson (Bob Clendenin), cashier Richard Mednick (Christopher Liam Moore
) and ambitious checkout bagger Buchwald Washington (Greg Davis Jr.
In line with the announcement of the return of 10 Items or Less
, TBS recently launched the first-ever star-studded celebrity bagging competition that took place Friday, November 21 during The Comedy Festival at Caesars Palace. Participants, which included cast members from My Boys
, Mad Men, 10 Items or Less
and The Young and the Restless
, all took part in the wacky contest, which judged them on their grocery bagging speed, technique, and the equal distribution of weight in bags that were successfully completed.
Lehr, Valderrama, Davis and Kim Coles, who comprised the winning team, earned a donation of $500 for DoSomething.org, a non-profit organization that aims to encourage young people to take action in their community around causes they are passionate about.
