After Another Lackluster Season, Can the Network Sitcom Be Saved?

Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robin Williams

This was supposed to be the year that popular stars Michael J. Fox, Sean Hayes and Robin Williams triumphantly returned to television and saved the sitcom. But of these three, only Williams is still on the air — and his new show, CBS' The Crazy Ones, is more "solid" than "smash."

"It's hard to launch comedy even in the best of circumstances," says NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt. And network TV circa 2014 is not experiencing the best of circumstances. NBC pulled The Michael J. Fox Show and Sean Saves the World off the network's Thursday night lineup this winter after both shows attracted just around 3 million viewers a week. (Michael J.

Patton Oswalt

The day before Hollywood's biggest stars don their gowns and tuxedos for the Oscars, they cut loose and drink up on the Santa Monica beach during the Film Independent Spirit Awards. This year, stand-up comedian/actor Patton Oswalt hosts the laid-back affair (airing Saturday, March 1 at 10/9c on IFC). "I'm doing as little as possible [to prepare]," Oswalt admits. "I want to be as relaxed and boozy as everyone I'm performing for. If I'm too focused, I'll just freak everybody out." But one tongue-in-cheek stunts has already been nixed: Oswalt will not be allowed to present live birds to this year's winners, as he had previously intended.
