On Friday, Melissa McCarthy comes to TBS with films such as “Tammy” and a sneak peek into her new HBO Max original film “Superintelligence” premiering Thursday, Nov. 26. In this action comedy, when an all-powerful Superintelligence (James Corden) chooses to study the most average person on Earth, Carol Peters (McCarthy), the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
