Did a CBS sitcom just become our new favorite comedy pick of pilot season? You betcha! Having previously cast comic legend Robin Williams, CBS pilot 'Crazy Ones' has made yet another terrific addition: former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star Sarah Michelle Gellar! Following the demise of The CW's 'Ringer,' Gellar will once again return to TV for the David E. Kelley single-camera comedy, taking the role of Williams' character's daughter, but will it be any good? Get the inside scoop on 'Crazy Ones' with SMG inside!
Okay, so former 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' star Sarah Michelle Gellar's big return to TV with The CW's 'Ringer' didn't exactly work out, but you can't keep a good slayer down. No, it's not that 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' animated series we'd heard about, or even a guest spot under Joss Whedon on ABC's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, but rather Sarah Michelle Gellar is reportedly returning to TV in another starring vehicle. Find out the details of SMG's new venture inside!
Like any sane TV viewer and avid 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' fan, we were overjoyed to learn that Sarah Michelle Gellar was returning to the network that made her famous, even if it was a more female-skewing soap opera series in 'Ringer.' So while not altogether surprising - given its critical reception and impressively low ratings - part of us still died inside to see the chosen one cancelled off the network this past week. Still, might Gellar have a different future at the network?
And with that, it seems The CW has just about settled its lineup for the fall season. There were some clutch renewals and intriguing pilots picked up for sure, but now all of the major series have been accounted for. So where 'Gossip Girl' and 'Hart of Dixie' will live to fight another day, poor Sarah Michelle Gellar's 'Ringer' sadly won't live up to 'Buffy's seven-season legacy, and the truth is out about 'The Secret Circle.'
Yesterday was a good day for many of The CW's fans, given full season renewals for the network's bigger hits like 'Supernatural,' 'The Vampire Diaries,' and even the '90210' reboot, or adaptation, or whatever we're calling it. Apart from those three however, what of the network's other on-the-bubble series? Who's most likely dead in the water, and who's still got a fighting chance?
