The Crazy Ones: Season One Ratings

The Crazy Ones: cancel or renew?After 30 years, Robin Williams has returned to television in The Crazy Ones. Will his new show measure up to CBS’ high ratings standards for their sitcoms, or will it be cancelled like so many others? Time will tell.

The Crazy Ones follows an unorthodox ad agency executive (Williams) and his partner and daughter (Sarah Michelle Gellar). The rest of the cast includes James Wolk, Hamish Linklater, and Amanda Setton.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”).

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    Please renew The Crazy Ones. It might have started awkward, but that’s the case with all new shows as actors are still finding the perfect chemistry. This one triumphed with all its characters now playing in perfect harmony. Give this one a chance to flourish, CBS!!!

    Please don’t cancel this show, we love it!!! Much better than 2 broke girls and Mike and Molly or the Millers. Never cared for any of these. I like how different The Crazy Ones is

    The Crazy Ones is much funnier than The Millers and is far more original and funny than an attempt to bring a sitcom version of the Bad Teacher movie to tv. Come on CBS if you seriously continue to renew reality tv nonsense like Big Brother or Survivor and continue to support stuff like Two And Half Men or Mike & Molly when their latest seasons show a drop in funny and audience approval, then you should give a genuinely funny and original program like The Crazy Ones a chance to develop its audience. Rules Of Engagement was better than the treatment you guys gave it and if you show the same type of lack of consideration for The Crazy Ones in favor of this new Bad Teacher or some other replacement you will lose a viewer in that time slot guaranteed.

      This is the thing though. I love the Crazy Ones, especially the Pam Dawber episode. Bringing her back was a stroke of genius, but it really doesn’t matter what we like. A bunch of suits will get together, (if they haven’t already), and they will decide whether the show gets a second season. Everything I’ve seen and heard says the show is all but cancelled. I hate it, but that’s the reality of the situation. If CBS cared about the people who actually like the show, they would have renewed it weeks ago. What does it tell you that they haven’t??

    My husband and I love this show. It’s every bit as good as Big Bang and should follow it. It hasn’t been aired at the same time consistently. All of our friends that have seen it, love it as well.

    Love the Crazy Ones… Give it a chance… Remember ,MASH and All in the family needed time and they lasted a decade…Robin Williams and Sarah Gellar are great together and the rest of cast is tops too…

    The Crazy ones is a really funny show with a great cast. I hope another network picks this show up if CBS cancels it and shows this network how wrong they are. Robin Williams is brilliant

    I love this show so much! Its different and very unique compared to the shows we see every day. We need this show!

    I have to say. Love the show. Most of you who say Williams isn’t funny, and he should do drama than comedy, dont know his work. He’s a talented actor and does great on drama and comedy. Yes there are some episodes that are boring, but that’s very few. I love the cast and they work well with Williams natural improve comedic style. I watch the show every Thursday and miss other shows that I want to watch so I won’t miss a moment of this one.
