"Pilot" -- Academy Award winner Robin Williams returns to series television in THE CRAZY ONES, CBS√¢¬?¬?s new single camera workplace comedy about a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired√¢¬?¬¶ if he weren√¢¬?¬?t the boss. Simon Roberts (Williams) is the head of a powerful agency, with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is that his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is by his side.
