How We Roll

Based on the life story of professional bowler Tom Smallwood, the series stars Pete Holmes as Tom, a stoic Midwest husband and dad who gets laid off from a car assembly line and makes the extraordinary decision to provide for his family by following his dream of becoming a professional bowler.

As a skilled player, Tom knows that in bowling you get two chances: no matter what you do with the first ball, you get another one to make it right - the ultimate second chance.

Keeping that in mind, he begins his new career with the loving "OK" from his wife, Jen (Katie Lowes); the unfaltering support of Archie (Chi McBride), his mentor and the proud owner of Archie's Lanes: Home of the Curly Fry; the cautious backing of his protective mom, Helen (Julie White); and the encouragement of his son, Sam (Mason Wells).

It remains to be seen if Tom will strike it big on the pro bowler circuit, but right now, the pins are set, he's taking his second shot, and it's 300 or bust.

The Voice 18

Nick Jonas joins coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Blake Shelton as they return for Season 18, with Carson Daly returning as host.

The show's format features four stages of competition: The first begins with the Blind Auditions, then the Battle Rounds, Knockouts and, finally, the Live Performance Shows.

During the Blind Auditions, the decisions from the musician coaches are based solely on voice and not looks. The coaches hear the artists perform, but they don't get to see them, thanks to rotating chairs.

If a coach is impressed by the artist's voice, he/she pushes a button to select the artist for his/her team.

At this point, the coach's chair will swivel so that he/she can face the artist he/she has selected.

If more than one coach pushes his/her button, the power then shifts to the artists to choose which coach they want to work with. If no coach pushes his/her button, the artist is eliminated from the competition.

Also returning this season is the "block," which adds another layer of excitement during the Blind Auditions.

The coach chairs each have an extra set of buttons with the other three coaches' names. The block button prevents a coach from adding a new artist to their team.

The coaches can only use their block buttons on one artist for the entire first round of the competition.

When a coach hits the block button with the name of the other three coaches, the coach who hit it automatically turns around. The "blocked" coach only discovers they are blocked if they press their button.

The blocked coach's chair will still turn - instead of their lane lighting up with their name, it will say "Blocked." If the coach doesn't press their button, the block is still available for another audition.

Once the teams are set, the battle is on. The coaches dedicate themselves to developing their team of artists, giving them advice and sharing the secrets of their success, along with help from their celebrity advisors.

The coaches enlist music industry heavyweights to prepare their artists for the Battle Rounds - Dua Lipa for Team Kelly, Joe and Kevin Jonas for Team Nick, Ella Mai for Team Legend and Bebe Rexha for Team Blake.

During the Battle Rounds, the coaches will pit two of their own team members against each other to sing the same song together in front of a studio audience.

They are vying for their coach's confidence and decision to take them to the next round.

After each vocal battle, the coach must choose which of his/her singers will advance to the next round of competition.

The losing artist is available to be stolen by another coach or available to be saved by their own coach, but unlike any other season, the team coach can only hit their button to save an artist after it's clear no other coach is going to steal the artist.

If no other coach has attempted to steal the artist by the time he/she gets down the stage steps, the artist's coach can push to save them.

Each coach will have one save and one steal in the Battle Rounds. Artists who won their battle or were stolen by another coach will advance to the Knockout Rounds.

In a new twist for the show, the four artists that were saved by their individual coaches during the Battle Rounds will not automatically advance in the competition.

Instead, those artists will compete in the first Four-Way Knockout.

Each of the four artists will receive individualized coaching and rehearsals with their coach and a superstar Mega Mentor in preparation for the Four-Way Knockout.

However, the winner will ultimately be chosen by America.

At the top of the final episode of Knockouts, voting will open for America to choose which of the four artists moves forward in the competition after their performances.

At the top of the first Live Show, Carson will reveal which of the four artists was voted through by America, and that artist will continue to the Live Shows with their original team.

For the remainder of the artists who made it to the Knockouts Round, one superstar Mega Mentor will be on hand to work with all the coaches and their teams as they prepare the artists for this challenge.

In the Knockouts, the artists will be paired against a teammate once more, but this time they will select their own songs to perform individually while their direct competitor watches and waits.

The coaches will choose the winner and the artist not selected will be available to be stolen by another coach.

Each coach will only have one steal in the Knockout Round, making the stakes higher than ever.

Once the Live Performance Shows begin, the top artists will compete each week against each other during a live broadcast.

As always, the television audience will vote to save their favourite artists. The artists with the lowest number of votes will be eligible for the "Instant Save."

These artists will each perform a new song that represents why they should earn the save. America will then have the opportunity to save their favourite performer by voting on "The Voice" app or

The singers with the lowest number of votes will be sent home each week.

In the end, one will be named "The Voice" and will receive the grand prize of a recording contract.
