Robin Williams Remembered — A Pioneers of Television Special will feature previously-unseen clips from Williams' final interview for Pioneers of Television, which aired this past spring, as well as interviews with some of his colleagues, including his friend and former Mork & Mindy co-star Pam Dawber.

Question: With the passing of the legendary TV talents Robin Williams and James Garner, don't you think it would be remiss if the upcoming Emmys didn't do a clips tribute to both of them? Awards shows have an unfortunate habit of dedicating chunks of time to a theme or subject that either makes no sense or ends up really boring. But these two gentlemen, who broke character boundaries and were excellent actors outside their niche personas, deserve special recognition. I just hope the producers of that upcoming show have the smarts to do something special, outside of the "In Memoriam" roll call. Your thoughts? — Karen
Pam Dawber and Robin Williams
Old pals Robin Williams and Pam Dawber have found themselves sitting across from each other on a soundstage nearly 32 years after shooting the final episode of Mork & Mindy, their seminal 1970s sitcom about a hyper but lovable alien from the planet Ork who falls for a charming girl next door.
"Pretty amazing, huh?" says Williams, 63. "Yeah," sighs Dawber, 62, whose guest spot marks her first acting role in 14 years.
The two are shooting a scene for the April 10 episode of Williams's hit CBS comedy, The Crazy Ones, which finds his Simon trying to break things off with the travel writer he's been dating (Dawber). When Simon...

You might feel like you've just inhaled a 5-hour Energy shot after watching the pilot episode of The Crazy Ones (Thursday, 9/8c), CBS' new comedy that marks the return of Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar to network television. The two play father-daughter advertising team Simon and Sydney Roberts, and in the premiere they're trying to convince their firm's biggest client, McDonald's, not to drop them. Williams brings his typical frenetic energy to the role, tossing off one-liners and impersonations a mile a minute every time he's on the screen. Viewers, not to mention his co-stars, may get whiplash trying to keep up. But that's not the only nutty aspect of The Crazy Ones. Here are...
Robin Williams made his first-ever visit to The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills Thursday for an evening in his honor, sponsored by TV Guide Magazine. Williams, who returns to television this month in CBS's The Crazy Ones, said, "I never think of myself as a legend. It's a weird label, like 'mythological,' with little people behind you [saying], 'We worship you.'"
