Williams vs. Fox: ‘Crazy Ones’ wins face-off

Fox
Williams

Robin Williams has bragging rights over Michael J. Fox in the competition between two sitcom veterans returning to network TV – with an asterisk.

The Nielsen company said Friday that Williams’ new CBS comedy, “The Crazy Ones,” debuted before 15.6 million people on Thursday night. It competed directly at 9 p.m. with “The Michael J. Fox Show” on NBC, which was seen by 7.2 million people.

Williams had a huge advantage, however. His new sitcom directly followed a new episode of TV’s most popular comedy, “The Big Bang Theory,” which was seen by 19.5 million people. The second half hour of “Parks & Recreation” on NBC, which preceded Fox’s new show, had less than 3 million viewers.
