cbs trailers the crazy ones robin williams sarah michelle gellar CBS releases full trailer videos for 'The Crazy Ones,' 'Mom' and more fall shows

CBS has finally released full trailers for most of the network’s new fall shows. While previously released videos relied heavily on cast interviews and making-of footage, these new trailers show only footage. These were, in fact, the videos shown to advertisers and reporters during the CBS upfront presentations.

First up, we have the comedies.

“The Crazy Ones” has Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Wolk doing advertising in a much funnier way than “Mad Men.”

It may be the presence of Kelly Clarkson that inspires it, but everyone sings. Like everyone. Yay!

“The Millers” starring Will Arnett, Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges.

There is much more of Martindale and Bridges in this version. This is a good move on CBS’ part. A less-good move would be the ever-prevalent laugh track. It’s hardly necessary. Then there’s the best move — Arnett and Martindale reenacting “Dirty Dancing.”

“We Are Men” stars Jerry O’Connell, Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn and Chris Smith as a bunch of men.

Finally, there is “Mom,” a new Chuck Lorre comedy starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney.

CBS also released one drama trailer, for “Hostages,” with Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott.

Potential assassination, a family held hostage, ambiguous characters and more. This is on CBS?

(Note: Apologies to those who wanted to see more of the Josh Holloway drama, “Intelligence.” CBS hasn’t released that one yet.)
