"The Voice" will move to CTV2 on Tuesdays.

"Roseanne," which also aired on CTV, was cancelled by ABC following a racist tweet by its controversial star Roseanne Barr.

In the new spinoff without Barr, the working-class family faces "a sudden turn of events" that forces them to "face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before."

Those struggles include parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws.

Stars include Sara Gilbert, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

Gilbert is also a producer.
