Robin Williams’ return to TV is an insufferable mess

Robin Williams’ return to TV is more messy than triumphant.

A young advertising executive (Gellar) tries to rein in her brilliant-yet-unpredictable partner (Williams) who’s also her father.

It’s like “Mad (As in Insane) Men” — they even stole Bob Benson! Yes, it’s a big deal that Williams is back on TV. But the way he gives in to the same obvious, tired impulses he’s been relying on for decades is eye-rollingly insufferable. And the premiere is just one big, noisy McDonald’s commercial masquerading as a comedy.

What: “The Crazy Ones”

When: 9 p.m. Sept. 26, KLAS-TV, Channel 8

Who’s in it: Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Wolk, Hamish Linklater
