Robin Williams' Tv Comeback Is Over As The Crazy Ones Is Axed

Funnyman Robin Williams' return to Tv has been short-lived - network bosses have cancelled his comedy The Crazy Ones after just one season.

The show was the Mrs. Doubtfire star's first regular small screen role since he shot to fame on Tv classic Mork & Mindy, which ran from 1978 to 1982, but it struggled to pull in impressive ratings.

Executives at CBS have now decided to bring the axe down on the show, which co-starred Sarah Michelle Gellar as Williams' daughter.

Williams had revealed that he was tempted to take the job so he had a regular income, saying, "The idea of having a steady job is appealing. I have two (other) choices: go on the road doing stand-up, or do small, independent movies working almost for scale (minimum union pay). The movies are good, but a lot of times they don't even have distribution."

He's not the only Hollywood star to lose a U.S. Tv show this week (begs05May14) - Irish hunk Jonathan Rhys Meyers' much-hyped show Dracula has also felt the bite and was cancelled by executives at NBC after one season, and Malin Akerman's comedy Trophy Wife has also been scrapped.
