    I’m excited for The Crazy Ones.

    • Mark says:

      Me too. I wish it was an hour long series though. It doesn’t look like a show that will work well as a half hour comedy. I’d rather an hour long dramedy.

  2. Martin says:

    What about Mom and The Millers

  3. Ollie says:


    This looks so good and SMG is the cherry on top 😏

  4. CBWBDK1 says:

    We are men looks funny. Nice to see Tony Shalhoub back on tv. Intelligence looks awesome.

  5. lariet50 says:

    I’m interested in “The Crazy Ones,” and possibly “We Are Men.” But “We Are Men” might be better if it’s just 30 minutes of the cast ripping on each other.

  6. Jerm says:

    Crazy Ones is going to be so great! Can’t wait!

  7. wordsmith says:

    The logline for Intelligence made it sound a lot like Chuck or Jake 2.0, but it’s clearly going to be more serious. Hopefully they’ll be able to make it unique and compelling and not just another crime procedural with a few nifty visual effects.

    • jericho says:

      Was my immediate reaction too. “This looks like Chuck, but not a comedy.” I had totally forgot about Jake 2.0. Maybe Intelligence will succeed where Jake failed. Plus who doesn’t love Meghan? Bout time she got a starring gig.

  8. alexjones says:

    intelligence looks good.

  9. castlefan says:


  10. Lorena says:

    Now we know why CBS has the series with the most rating like NCIS and TBBT

  11. Jim says:

    How the hell is CBS the number 1 network? Every single one of these look terrible!

  12. S. says:

    All look good, though I think Mom would work better as a drama. And while I love the promo and idea for Crazy Ones, I don’t think it’s going to make it. I do love SMG but I don’t think she can keep up with Robin Williams, and I think that’s going to show through.

  13. Steven says:

    The Crazy Ones looks great! i can’t wait!

  14. Patrick says:

    I was intrigued by intelligence, but Ory and Halloway had ZERO chemistry. Further, she wasn’t featured in the interviews. A recast there would not be surprising. That was the weakest thing about all the promos. Honestly, I think I will watch all these shows. The Moms show could get old quick, but I will give it a chance.

  15. Babygate says:

    These are mostly derivative of CBS current lineup. They don’t take many chances. Big no for all comedies. I was looking forward to Hostage but it actually looks less appealing than I thought. I will probably give it a try anyways because it’s Toni Colette. Loved her since she did Muriel’s Wedding. Intelligence feels a lot like Person of Interest but who cares? It’s Josh freaking Holloway. That’s enough for me. Too bad we have to wait until the Spring…

  16. Sara says:

    We are Men starts the same way as Happy Endings did.

  17. James says:

    Hostages looks fantastic great cast behind it definitly will watch it, intelligance looks fun, and Crazy Ones I mean it’s Robin friggin Williams how can you not watch that.

  18. I appreciate their acknowledging Intelligence as the Six Million Dollar Man for the digital age. it’s what I was thinking. It’s about time someone presented the next iteration of that concept.

  19. C says:

    Crazy Ones isn’t my usual cup of tea, but that cast! I’m willing to give it a shot. I am sad Amanda Setton didn’t really get featured in the promo.

  20. Zach says:

    I knew the cast of We are Men was great, but somehow I didn’t see it coming together perfectly. Wow does that look awesome! It’s like a show that you feel as if you want to be a part of. Everyone looks like they’re having so much fun. Crazy Ones looks great, Mom looks good, bit disappointed by The Millers but it has Will Arnett so it can’t be that bad.

  21. jalahyacinth says:

    Wow… I couldn’t finish any of these either… Maybe all the networks will improve on their shows as the season progresses?

  22. diane says:

    We are Men looks the funniest. Hostages looks intriguing.

  23. kavyn says:

    I’m only really interested in Intelligence and Crazy Ones, but if they recast Ory then I’m probably not tuning in. I thought my love for Anna Faris would outweigh my distaste for Chuck Lorre comedies but I guess not, which is a bit disappointing. I’ll probably still watch the first few episodes of Mom and see if it grows on me.

  24. Mike says:

    Honestly I’m shocked how many shows I’m looking forward to that are on CBS, I usually avoid CBS with a passion.

    Hostages looks interesting, but do they have a long term plan for this show, what happens once the protagonist either kills or does not kill the President.

    Intelligence looks high concept for sure, I’m definitely checking out the pilot. I think it has potential and a good cast, but seeing how it looks like a serial drama as compared to a procedural, I don’t know if it will last on CBS.

    I wasn’t crazy about We are Men, I mean it didn’t look terrible, but it didn’t look that great either, but it seems to have a solid cast, but I’m predicting this one gets cancelled early on and Mike and Molly takes its place.

    Mom was better than my expectations, but given it is a Lorre comedy, my expectations were pretty low. Anna Faris seems perfect for her role. I expect it to be a success, but I don’t think I’ll be watching.

    I did not like The Millers, which is a shame since it has such a talented cast, that belong on better shows. I do expect it to be at least a moderate success in the post BBT time slot.

    The Crazy One on the other hand looks excellent, and is my favorite new comedy that was picked up by any of the major networks. I really want it to be a success since the cast looks fantastic. James Wolk deserves a show that doesn’t get cancelled after only one season. I hope this one lasts.

  25. LE says:

    WOOOW CBS new shows look really solid! I think this could be a breakout season for them. They have 3 potential hits with Crazy ones, mom and the millers (could be a also a failure) and 2 cool dramas. I think I might watch all the comedies and Hostages. Itelligence looks cool but procedurals are not my cup of tea.

  26. Daniela says:

    THE CRAZY ONES look good. So does HOSTAGES. I also liked the preview of THE MILLERS and MOM. WE ARE MEN however looks horrible.

  27. david says:

    Can’t wait for crazy ones!!!

  28. Patricia De Souza says:

    Why are people so excited for the crazy ones? All these shows look pretty terrible

  29. kirads09 says:

    Intelligence may be the one NEW fall show I could get excited about.

  30. Southland Fan says:

    I have to be honest, I thought these all looked terrible. But to Babygate’s point, all of these shows look like current CBS shows. I guess they are #1 so they don’t have to take chances, just produce more of the same.

    That being said, I was excited for Hostages (Dylan McDermott) and Intelligence (welcome back Josh Holloway!), but the promos weren’t that great. Hopefully, we can get some actual promos/trailers without the behind the scenes interviews so we can get a feel for the actual shows.

    So far for this fall, I’m really only excited for The Black List on NBC.

  31. Danielle H. says:

    Would have checked out the Crazy Ones but alas, Grey’s Anatomy and Beauty and the Beast occupy my thursdays @ 9. Unless Batb gets moved.

  32. Teag says:

    Hostages, We Are Men, Crazy Ones and Intelligence I’ll try out. The rest look baaad. Even We are Men is iffy.

  33. Drewer says:

    I’m annoyed they finally picked up a single camera comedy and still passed on Super Clyde!

  34. Jason says:

    Crazy Ones and Intelligence, totes.

  35. Sold on all – except We Are Men. Very odd as I don’t watch much on CBS – minus Good Wife, HIMYM 2BG and BBT. Strange, indeed.

  36. I think Im going to be checking out all of these

  37. ChicagoDan says:

    Intelligence should be a hit. Hostages – not so much. Can’t imagine how the premise will last beyond the 15 first season episodes (or even be dragged out over those episodes).

    Mom and The Crazy Ones have best potential. The Millers looks awful. Actually painful.

  38. Eli says:

    Why can’t CBS do regular trailers like everyone else? What is it with this behind the scenes crap?

  39. Miranda says:

    Oh my God! I just want to watch the preview, not the behind-the-scenes garbage! How am I supposed to be able to tell if I’d like the show.

  40. Julio says:

    All look like winners except Hostages.

  41. Tee says:

    Oof I thought I read that Mom had a great script/pilot. That was a let-down.

    Intelligence, good cast but kind of generic feeling. Also as much as I love Ory’s Red, she felt a little flat here.

    The Millers had a couple of funny parts, which were completely eradicated by all the terribly unfunny parts.

    The Crazy Ones I was curious about but didn’t think the promo looked too great.

    Yeah in general if I check out any of these, it’s because of the cast, not because the plots or promos looked good.

  42. dude says:

    What?! CBS doing exciting, different TV shows? Craziness. I’m excited for The Crazy Ones, Mom, Intelligence and Hostages.

  43. ggny says:

    Sooo Intelligence is just a darker Chuck?

  44. Cannot wait for the Crazy Ones – Robin Williams & Sarah Michelle Gellar! Love them both so I know It is going to be so good!

  45. bobbie says:

    The Crazy Ones, The Crazy Ones, The Crazy Ones, yes

  46. bobbie says:

    If “We Are Men” focused mostly on Kal Penn and Tony Shaloub I would watch it, but I’m seriously doubting that this show will fly as is.

  47. Natalie says:

    Intelligence and Mom!!!!! Best casts ever. Josh Holloway= yummy sexy beast(aka my biggest tv crush ever); Meghan Ory= total girl crush; Anna Farris+Allison Janney= unstoppable bitches. what now.

  48. James says:

    the best part of the crazy ones preview was when the writers said we gave robin a few ideas and let him go. the almost guarantees it will be hilarious.

  49. Leondre says:

    The Millers

    Crazy Ones
    We Are Men

  50. Maddawg says:

    Saw the 30 minute screening of The Millers and it was very funny. Definitely going to watch it!
