ROBIN WILLIAMS, SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR, JAMES WOLK, HAMISH LINKLATER AND AMANDA SETTON STAR IN A REBROADCAST OF "THE CRAZY ONES," ON A SPECIAL NIGHT AND TIME, SATURDAY, SEPT. 28 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Grammy Award Winner Kelly Clarkson Guest Stars

"Pilot" - Simon must pull out all the stops and convince Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson to record a new twist on a classic advertising jingle for their biggest client, on a rebroadcast of the series premiere of THE CRAZY ONES, on a special night and time, Saturday, Sept. 28 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 9/26/13.)

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 is the head of a powerful agency with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is having his daughter Sydney 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, art director Andrew, who's as hard-working as he is neurotic, and the beautiful and deceptively smart assistant Lauren. 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.

ANNA FARIS AND ALLISON JANNEY STAR IN A REBROADCAST OF THE NEW COMEDY "MOM," ON A SPECIAL NIGHT AND TIME, SATURDAY, SEPT. 28

"Pilot" - Christy, a newly sober single mother, is trying to get her life together. She is challenged when her estranged mother, Bonnie, comes back into the picture, on a rebroadcast of the series premiere of MOM, on a special night and time, Saturday, Sept. 28 (8:30-9:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 9/23/13.)

MOM is a comedy from executive producer Chuck Lorre starring Anna Faris as Christy, a waitress at a posh Napa Valley establishment who is four months clean and doing her best to be a good mom and overcome a history of questionable choices. Her sobriety is tested when her recovering alcoholic mom, Bonnie, played by Emmy Award winner Allison Janney, reappears chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes. Bonnie joins Christy's already complicated circle of relationships: her handsome, married boss - and lover - Gabriel; the restaurant's hot-tempered chef, Rudy; her pretty, 16-going-on-25-year-old daughter, Violet; her sweet but overly honest son, Roscoe; her irresponsible ex and Roscoe's father, Baxter; and Violet's clueless boyfriend, Luke. Christy tries to remain positive as she pursues her new path in life, but she faces an uphill battle, surrounded by a dubious support system - and a copious amount of dysfunction.

TONI COLLETTE, DYLAN MCDERMOTT AND TATE DONOVAN STAR IN A REBROADCAST OF "HOSTAGES," ON A SPECIAL NIGHT AND TIME, SATURDAY, SEPT. 28

"Pilot" - After Dr. Ellen Sanders, a prominent Washington D.C. surgeon, is handpicked to operate on the President of the United States, rogue FBI agent Duncan Carlisle and armed intruders suddenly take her and her family hostage. Scared and bewildered, Ellen soon learns the reason: unless she assassinates the President during surgery, her captors will kill them all, on a rebroadcast of the series premiere of HOSTAGES, on a special night and time, Saturday, Sept. 28 (9:01-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 9/23/13.)

HOSTAGES, 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 when she operates on him. His highly skilled accomplices include his brother-in-law Kramer, whose loyalty to Carlisle will be tested; quick-tempered and intimidating Archer, an ex-military man with a razor-sharp tongue; and the only woman involved, Sandrine, a mysterious last-minute replacement to the team. With her family's life in peril, Ellen faces an incomprehensible moral dilemma in order to save her overbearing husband Brian, her secretive daughter Morgan and her not-so-innocent son Jake. In this high-stakes standoff between Ellen and Carlisle, fraught with tremendous national and personal consequences, the choices between right and wrong become even more blurred.
