CBS has announced which shows they won’t be inviting back next season.
Among them, sadly, the terrific Robin Williams comedy “The Crazy Ones”. Though series creator David E.Kelly apparently pitched a great second season (one which he promised he’d be around more for), and the show itself rated near the 10s (that means something), CBS just didn’t think it a fit. No word yet on whether Kelly might – and he should – shop the comedy elsewhere.
The network has also axed “Intelligence” starring Josh Holloway, the newbie “Friends with Better Lives” starring James Van Der Beek, the low-rating “Bad Teacher” series, and the already-gone “Hostages”. Bubble series “The Mentalist” has been renewed.
