    C’mon folks, you really didn’t think the Crazy Ones wasn’t going to be picked up?? Both Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar are mega-stars.

    That being said, one thing is missing from the show. You have a father and a daughter, but no mother. There is a certain actress living in California, who would be perfect for the role. Her name is Pam Dawber. Sign her up CBS!!

    I’m glad the Crazy ones was giving a full order. I really like the show.


    gary good idea but I think pams husband makes to much money for her to act lol

    I’m looking forward to Bad Teacher but where to put it ? Most likely could be Thur after Crazy Ones being a single cam but then where does 2.5 Men go ? All the comedy slots are spoken for with these renewals unless they put a show on hiatus.

    The Crazy Ones. Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    From the one episode I’ve seen of The Millers it actually it a funny comedy. Will Arnett and the Actress who portrays the Mother have great chemistry. It has maintained its audience, although it does have the BBT huge lead in ratings and does lose a lot of it I guess it could be worse.

    I’m just surprised that Crazy Ones and Two and a Half Men are doing mediocre with their ratings this season!!! I know 2 Men hasn’t been the same since Charlie left but I still didn’t expect it to drop this low!

  • Adam Decker

    I don’t understand why people like Mom. That show is dumb and the characters aren’t people anyone would care about. I’m not sure why some people don’t like The Crazy Ones. The Millers is average, but that hasn’t stopped many shows from lasting long on television.

    Happy for Mom and The Millers.

  • Rebecca

    Actually, I always thought SMG looked a lot like Lindsay Wagner (old Bionic Woman) – she should play her mom some day in something. That said, I don’t watch TCO…tired of Robin Williams.

    Let’s not count Mom out just yet.
    Gary Unmarried was renewed after almost it’s entire season preformed in the Mid to Low 2’s. And that was a few years ago.
