Legendary comic and award-winning actor Robin Williams spoke exclusively to TVGuide.com today and shared what it was like to return to network TV after over thirty years. His new series THE CRAZY ONES, co-starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on CBS. Check out the interview below!

"For me, it was wonderful," the actor told the site. "It was like a movie because there was no live audience, even though the first day we had all these people show up to watch...They [were like], 'Riff, White Boy!'"

The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning actor made his Broadway debut in 2011's BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO, having previously appeared Off-Broadway opposite Steve Martin in Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" at Lincoln Center in 1988.

The official synopsis for THE CRAZY ONES:

Academy Award winner Robin Williams returns to series television in THE CRAZY ONES, a single-camera workplace comedy about a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired... if he weren't the boss.

Simon Roberts (Williams) is the head of a powerful agency, with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is that his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is by his side. As his partner, Sydney is Simon's exact opposite - focused, organized and eager to make a name for herself, but also too busy parenting her father, which she'd resent if he wasn't so brilliant at what he does. Joining them in the firm are the dashing and talented Zach (James Wolk); art director Andrew (Hamish Linklater), who's as hard-working as he is neurotic; and the beautiful and deceptively smart assistant Lauren (Amanda Setton).

With his team and his daughter behind him, Simon continues to set the advertising world on fire, and it looks like they are definitely buying what these crazy ones are selling. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal" and "The Practice"), Bill D'Elia, Emmy Award winner Jason Winer ("Modern Family"), Dean Lorey, John Montgomery and Mark Teitelbaum are executive producers for Twentieth Century FOX Television. Jason Winer directed the pilot.
