2013 CBS Fall TV Preview: The Millers, Hostages, & Sarah Michelle Gellar in The Crazy Ones
Celebified's giving you the scoop on some of CBS's most buzzed-about new fall shows, straight from the TCA Summer Press Tour! First up, Robin Williams makes a welcome return to network TV with The Crazy Ones in which he plays the head of a Chicago ad agency he runs with his daughter, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. The pilot could use some work, but with manic Williams on screen and the talented David E. Kelley behind it, The Crazy Ones could turn out to be one of the more promising sitcoms of the fall. Next, Will Arnett, Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges star in The Millers, a grossly unfunny sitcom that squanders the talents of its three leads. Martindale and Bridges play Arnett's bickering, unpleasant parents who visit him and then decide to stay when they learn that their son is divorced and living alone. The show's biggest offense is reducing Emmy-winner Martindale to being nothing more than a conduit for fart and sex jokes, but if that's your style, check it out when it premieres on Sept. 26. CBS's lone new drama is Hostages, starring Toni Collette as a Washington, D.C., surgeon who is scheduled to operate on the President. But the night before the surgery she and her family are taken hostage by a rogue FBI agent and his henchmen who want her to kill the Commander-in-Chief. How CBS plans to make a long-term series out of this concept is a mystery, but for now allow yourself to be taken hostage when the show premieres on Sept. 23! Let us know which CBS shows you're most looking forward to this fall, and be sure to stick with us at Celebified for more TV buzz!
