NBC will use its biggest weeknight show to launch two of its new comedies, “Superstore” and “Telenovela,” before setting them out on their own in 2016.

A pair of “Superstore” episodes will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT Monday, Nov. 30, following “The Voice.” “Telenovela” will get its sneak preview at the same time a week later, Dec. 7.

Then, NBC will hope you remember both shows as they take the holiday season off and launch in their regular timeslots on Jan. 4, 2016. “Superstore” will lead off the night at 8 p.m., followed by “Telenovela” at 8:30.

“Superstore” stars America Ferrera and Ben Feldman as two employees of a big-box store. It comes from former “Office” writer-producer Justin Spitzer.

“Telenovela” (previously titled “Hot & Bothered”) stars Eva Longoria as the star of a Spanish-language soap opera and chronicles its off-camera shenanigans. Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein (“Cougar Town,” “My Name Is Earl”) are executive producing.
