Robin William decided to give television another try after his film career floundered and he found too many bills that needed to be paid.
TheWrap.com reports his new series, The Crazy Ones, is the one word no comic actor wishes to hear–unfunny.
Critic Tim Molloy slams the show for its “annoying slickness” before wading in for the critical kill:
None of the above problems would be problems if I were laughing so hard through “The Crazy Ones” that I didn’t have time to stop and think. But I did. The show just isn’t very funny. Other comedies have been able to overcome this problem – “Big Bang Theory,” for instance – by being nice and cute. But “Crazy Ones” is neither.
The Crazy Ones, featuring Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar as a father/daughter ad executive team, debuts at 9 p.m. EST tonight on CBS.
