Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys, and America Ferrera are about to get really close to the Olympics. 

Superstore, which stars Ferrera, will premiere on Friday, Aug. 19 at 10:30 p.m. following NBC’s coverage of the Rio Olympics, while Cyrus and Keys make their debut as coaches on The Voice on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 10:30 p.m. following the Closing Ceremony.

The Voice kickoff will be a short, 30-minute episode that will feature Cyrus and Keys getting settled into their red chairs beside fellow coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The rest of the 11th cycle’s premiere will air on Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

The second season premiere of Superstore will take on an Olympics theme. We can only hope that means Dina (Lauren Ash) will be showing off some serious gymnastics skills. The series will stick its landing in its regular time slot, 8 p.m. on Thursdays, starting Sept. 22.

The Opening Ceremony of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio is Friday, Aug. 5 at 7 p.m. ET.
