    They're both going for the big pay cheque. This project could be setup at any cable network where it could actually do well since Williams' material is better suited for cable. So it will likely fail at CBS just like **** My Dad Says.

    But unlike **** My Dad Says... this has an actual writer behind it.

    If this was Chuck Lorre or whoever it was that inflicted that turn on the world, I'd be tieing the noose right now. With Kelley, at least there's hope it might actually be watchable.

    **** had the creators/showrunners of Will & Grace behind it, but they seem better suited for sitcoms in the 90s.

    Well, I was more talking about the originator of the concept. No matter who is writing, if you're basing a series on a ****ing twitter account, the results won't be good.

    Not to mention who's starring. William Shatner is a parody of a parody of himself these days. At least Williams is still moderately respectable.

    Why is it so hard to make good sitcoms now. Anyway, Robin Williams you say? I'm in...

    Because there's an influx of bad writers making them.

    Like this guy.

    First series opposite Jon Voight, second series opposite Sigourney Weaver, third series opposite Robin Williams... not a bad record.

    Lets see if this one actually lasts. :o

    I wish this was on HBO. I prefer TV-MA Robin Williams.

    ****, with it being for CBS, I'm just glad they've allowed it to be single camera/no laughtrack.

    Even if it's moderately suck-ish it will probably last for about 5 seasons. :o
