"The Olympics give us a unique chance to expose some of our strongest shows to millions of viewers who might not otherwise see them," Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment Chairman, said in statement. "So we wanted to showcase our great new comedy hit Superstore with a special Olympics-related storyline, as well as blow the doors open on this fall's blind auditions of The Voice featuring Alicia Keys and Miley Cyrus—our two new coaches—alongside Blake and Adam. Much appreciation to Mark Lazarus and our sports division who bring us the gift of the Olympics every two years."

The Voice premieres for the season on September 19 on NBC.
