Sneak Peek: Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar Return to TV In The Crazy Ones

On the set of The Crazy Ones , it's all fun and games until Robin Williams starts riffing on colonoscopy videos. Then things just go batty. "I bet you haven't seen one in HD and 3-D," he says, waving a DVD. "I'll get you a copy overnight. Hold on, I'll call Fecal Express." Thirty-two years after uttering his final "nanu nanu" on Mork & Mindy , Williams is back in manic mode on a primetime half-hour comedy, this one from Ally McBeal and Boston Legal creator David E. Kelley . Williams plays...   //www.tvguide.com/News/Crazy-Ones-Williams-Gellar-1069854.aspx?rss=breakingnews

‘The Crazy Ones’ Trailer: Get Ready to “Embrace the Crazy”

Kelly Clarkson. Children spitting cookies. James Wolk holding hands with Sarah Michelle Gellar. Robin Williams smelling a young woman’s hair “for grandma.” Those are just a few of the things promised in the decidedly eccentric trailer for CBS’s ad agency comedy  The Crazy Ones . The series is built around the father/daughter relationship between Robin’s brilliant, but manic Simon and Gellar’s no-nonsense Sydney. Their temperments may clash, but the trailer gives the sense that it will take both of them to make the agency work…and to stop Kelly Clarkson from desecrating poor Wolk.Check out the trailer below.

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!

CBS's Fall Line-Up Has Some Hits and Misses - Full Report from the TCAs

CBS 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 (Sarah Michelle Gellar). Williams is at times hilarious but the not-good-enough pilot could use a healthy dose of his improvisational wit. Still, 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. Premieres Sept. 26 at 9pm. 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. By no means should anyone visit The Millers when they premiere Sept. 26 at 8:30pm. 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 (Dylan McDermott) and his henchmen who want her to kill the Commander-in-Chief. If she doesn’t, her family will die. It’s a great setup and Collette gives a powerful performance in the gripping pilot. 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 at 10pm. Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O’Connell, Kal Penn and Chris Smith are the title characters in comedic misfire We Are Men . They play four single guys who all live in the same apartment complex and are desperate to pick up women. The lame, sophomoric humor never elicits more than a slight chuckle and is yet another example of a talented ensemble being totally wasted. My advice: don’t invite these men into your house when the show premieres on Sept. 30 at 8:30pm. Anna Faris and Allison Janney star in the intermittently funny sitcom Mom . Faris is exceptional as a single mother struggling to raise two kids while working as a waitress, and Janney is every bit Faris’ equal as her misguided, alcoholic but ultimately supportive mom. The likable pilot shows potential and could evolve into a nice comic treat. Faris and Janney deserve it. Premieres Sept. 23 at 9:30pm.

CBS Brings Robin Williams and Josh Holloway Back to TV, Introduces Five New Shows for Fall, Three for Midseason. Watch the Trailers!

CBS Fall Lineup See which fall shows people are most excited about with our Track-tion infographic » Compared to some other networks, CBS came out of this past season relatively unscathed. Yes, they canceled some shows, but even with those failures, they were able to keep the title of Most Watched Network. As a result, they didn’t have a lot of empty space to fill with new shows, and only announced six new shows scheduled to premiere in the Fall. The biggest name joining the Tiffany network is Robin Williams, who is starring in the single-camera comedy The Crazy Ones , alongside TV vet Sarah Michelle Geller. They’re a father-daughter team who run an ad agency. And since this is Robin Williams we’re talking about, to say he’s unorthodox when it comes to business is to understate the matter incredibly… Will Arnett, now free from the canceled NBC sitcom Up All Night , stars in The Millers , another comedy about adult children living with their parents. Arnett stars as the recently divorced Nathan Miller. When his parents find out about his divorce, they also split up, forcing Nathan’s mother (Margo Martindale), to move in with him, and Nathan’s father (Beau Bridges) to move in with Nathan’s sister. Wacky fart-filled, laugh-track-backed antics ensue. It’s no Arrested Development , that’s for sure… Chuck Lorre, the king of CBS comedies, ( Mike & Molly ; Two and a Half Men ; The Big Bang Theory ), will add a fourth comedy to his arsenal with Mom , starring Anna Faris as a newly-single mother with two kids dealing with the influence of her troublesome mother, played by Allison Janey. Where Mom is focused on women, the possibly ironically titled We Are Men is about, well, men. Specifically, four single men of various ages, played by Chris Smith, Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, and Jerry O’Connell, as they attempt to live an exciting life of adventure and picking up chicks. And the drama front, only one is set to premiere in the Fall, while three more will premiere midseason. Of the three midseason shows — Reckless , Friends With Better Lives , and Intelligence — Intelligence is the only one that currently has a trailer. Maybe because it stars someone well known to uber-geeky TV fans. I’m talking about Sawyer himself, Josh Holloway! The series, a kind of modern-day Six Million Dollar Man , is about a federal agent with a super chip in his head that turns him into a walking computer with a wealth of information available to him in the blink of an eye. So, basically what Google Glass can only aspire to be. Hostages , which is set to premiere in the beginning of the Fall, stars Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott, in a story filled with many shades of grey. McDermott wants to kill the President, and holds Collette’s family hostage because he wants her to do it. See, she’s the President’s doctor, so it could be a pretty easy job for her. But does the President really deserve to die? That’s a question that may or may not be answered in the course of the series. Edited to add: On May 22nd, CBS announced it has also picked up the sitcom Bad Teacher , based on the Cameron Diaz film of the same name. A premiere date has yet to be announced, and a trailer is likely coming soon.
