TV show description:      
In this sitcom, Simon Roberts (Robin Williams) is the head of a powerful Chicago advertising agency. He’s a genius at his job and uses his unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior to land the biggest clients and brands in the world. Even more important to him is having his daughter Sydney by his side.

Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is also Simon’s partner and his exact opposite. Eager to make a name for herself, she’s focused and organized. Unfortunately, she has to spend a lot of her time parenting her father. That would be a bigger problem if he wasn’t so brilliant at his job.

Also working at the agency are dashing Zach Cropper (James Wolk); hardworking and neurotic art director Andrew Keanelly (Hamish Linklater); and Lauren Slotsky (Amanda Setton), the agency’s beautiful and deceptively smart assistant.

With his team and his daughter behind him, Simon continues to set the advertising world on fire.

    AGAIN, FAB SHOW, FUNNY! I loved it. Williams was GREAT! Again, thank you network BABIES IN DIAPERS for cancelling it, and helping cause the death of one of 2 of the greatest comedians OF ALL TIME, you putzes.

    Depression is a most difficult enemy to cope with. More should be done to educate the public regarding prolonged sadness – And suicide is not the answer. Robin Williams had his moments of greatness. His last TV show wasn’t up to snuff in the writing area. The actors were professional, but they needed more to work with. Even having Mindy back (from the Mork show) couldn’t fix it (they made her too mean). Robin Williams desperately needed counseling after he learned he was in the beginning stages of Parkinson’s disease. Why was his doctor not more concerned about prescribing Psychiatric help to him immediately? This tragedy could have been avoided. However, the show was right in being cancelled by the people in charge.

    The crazy Ones show FAILED because it was named incorrectly.CBS should have used a name more like The Zanny Executive.The term crazy by itself already turns many viewers off because in our time the term crazy is more serious then funny with all the events happening in our news stories.So the show crazy ones already had a strike against it by its title.It probably would have been better and more accurate to title the show, The Hilarious Executive,a title more fitting for Robin Williams who had a comedic history of being hilarious in his professional work.Who knows had the show been better named it might have been successful and Robin Williams would still be with us today.

    Saw it once, could not watch it – I don’t like that camera-moving style of filming. Can’t watch shows like that, they make me nauseous.
