    Hard to watch but I’m glad they were able to acknowledge it. It felt weird to see it not addressed on the other late shows but I realize they were repeats or taped early.

  2. Ironically, CBS had to choose between keeping Robin Williams’ sitcom and Will Arnett’s.

      How they could choose to keep Will Arnett over Robin Williams is beyond me. I would assume he’s paid less, that’s all I can figure. ‘The Crazy Ones’ being cancelled really surprised me, as I thought the ratings had been consistently good enlough for renewal.

    How very sad! He was such a funny man.just made you laugh.

  4. acurat says:

    That was very difficult to watch. Everyone is sad to see him go in this manner, but it highlights the danger of depression and if left untreated – it is a scary sickness. He fought it his whole life along with his chornicaled alcoholic and drug related relapses. As talented and gifted as he was, it is really sad to realize except for the four unleased films that are coming – we will never again experience his spontaneous and amazing comedic timing.
