Additional information about the five new series follows:

WE ARE MEN, premiering Monday, Sept. 30 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT), is about four single guys living in a short-term apartment complex who unexpectedly find camaraderie over their many missteps in love. Carter (Chris Smith), the youngest and most recent addition to the group, moved in after being ditched at the altar mid-ceremony, and is now eager to re-enter the dating scene and get on with his life with some guidance from his "band of brothers": Frank Russo, a middle-aged clothing manufacturer and four-time divorcée who still fancies himself a ladies man (Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Tony Shalhoub); Gil Bartis, a small business owner who was caught having the world's worst affair (Kal Penn); and Stuart Weber, a Speedo-wearing OB/GYN who's hiding his assets until his second divorce is settled (Jerry O'Connell). Rebecca Breeds also stars.

MOM, premiering Monday, Sept. 23 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT), stars Anna Faris as Christy, a newly sober single mom and waitress raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney stars as Bonnie, Christy's critical, estranged mother. Christy's sobriety is tested when her recovering alcoholic mom Bonnie reappears, chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes. Nate Corddry, Matt Jones, Sadie Calvano, Blake Garrett Rosenthal, Spencer Daniels and French Stewart also star.

THE CRAZY ONES premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) and stars Academy Award winner Robin Williams, who returns to series television as larger-than-life advertising genius Simon Roberts whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired... if he weren't the boss. Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Wolk, Hamish Linklater and Amanda Setton also star.

THE MILLERS, premiering Thursday, Oct. 3 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT), stars Will Arnett as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the singles' life until the unexpected marital troubles of his parents (Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale and Emmy Award winner Beau Bridges) suddenly derail his plans. Jayma Mays, JB Smoove, Nelson Franklin and Eve Moon also star.

HOSTAGES, premiering Monday, Sept. 23 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer, stars Emmy Award winner Toni Collette and Golden Globe Award winner Dylan McDermott in a high-octane suspense drama about Dr. Ellen Sanders, a premiere surgeon thrust into a chilling political conspiracy when her family is taken hostage by rogue FBI Agent Duncan Carlisle. Ellen and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President (James Naughton) when she operates on him. Tate Donovan, Sandrine Holt, Rhys Coiro, Billy Brown, Quinn Shephard and Mateus Ward also star.
