CBS’s released their fall TV schedule along with the other networks at the recent Upfronts, but the only comedy that really sparked my interest was The Crazy Ones starring Academy Award Winner Robin Williams and cult TV queen Sarah Michelle Gellar. I tuned in to SMG’s last foray on the small screen and was thoroughly underwhelmed. The Ringer was melodramatic, a little corny, and far too boring for my tastes and it only lasted one season. She’s dipping her toes into comedy now and it seems like a good fit based on this full trailer based of the show’s pilot. While Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a supernatural drama, it had the humor and comedic timing that could translate well to a comedy series. That’s the strength of Joss Whedon and his team’s writing.
