CBS has pretty high standards when it comes to the rating of its half-hour comedy series. The network has six timeslots to fill and already has several successful sitcoms. How will How We Roll measure up? Will this new show be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
A comedy series, the How We Roll TV show is based on the life of professional bowler Tom Smallwood. It stars Pete Holmes, Katie Lowes, Chi McBride, Julie White, and Mason Wells with Tahj Mowry, Rondi Reed, Judy Kain, Amanda Perez, and Matt McCarthy in recurring roles. In the story, Tom (Holmes) is a stoic husband and dad from the Midwest who gets laid off from his job on a car assembly line. He makes the extraordinary decision to provide for his family by finally 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, Tom begins his new career with the okay from his loving wife, Jen (Lowes); the unfaltering support of Archie (Mcbride), his mentor and the proud owner of Archie’s Lanes: Home of the Curly Fry; the cautious backing of his protective mom, Helen (White); and the encouragement of his son, Sam (Wells).

What do you think? Do you like the How We Roll TV series on CBS? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
*5/13/22 update: How We Roll has been cancelled so there won’t be a second season on CBS.
Give the show a chance people. Every episode got better. Just another show CBS left us hanging with no ending.
I was disappointed. I like bowling and was hoping they would show more bowling and the bowler’s life story. Instead, it is just another hum-drum comedy that is not very funny. If it doesn’t improve soon, I expect it will be canceled soon.
