In 1978, Mork & Mindy made Robin Williams the hottest thing on TV. In 1989, Good Morning, Vietnam made him the hottest thing in movies.
Now that it's (practically) fall 2013, he's returning to the small screen in The Crazy Ones, a new CBS sitcom from Ally McBeal and Boston Public producer David E. Kelly.
Where that will place the 62-year-old often-still-frenetic comedian – who proudly wears his battle scars, including those he earned thanks to problems with the bottle – on the temperature gauge remains to be seen.

CBS is the warrior king of networks, and its upfront typically feels like the ritual unfurling of an illustrated tapestry of conquests.
This year's event included the cast of How I Met Your Mother, now heading into its final season, singing a parody of Les Misérables beneath yellow umbrellas on the Carnegie Hall stage.
David Letterman, who is now the official anti-Jimmy of late night, made a brief (and rare) appearance, and Robin Williams, a high-profile addition to the lineup with a new sitcom called The Crazy Ones, gave the crowd a few moments of fast-riffing standup. He mentioned prostitutes, cocaine, FOX News and the notoriously bizarre variety show Pink Lady and Jeff.
Here are three shows that struck me as keepers, at least for as long as the audience will have them.

Jonathan Winters – an improvisational genius and the comedic spiritual godfather to a generation of younger comics, including Robin Williams, Jim Carrey and the late Andy Kaufman – died of natural causes Thursday night. He was surrounded by family and friends at his home in Montecito, Calif., the Associated Press reports. He was 87.
Tweeted Steve Martin on Friday: "Goodbye, Jonath[a]n Winters. You were not only one of the greats, but one of the great greats."

Matt Damon more than made up for his decade of being bumped from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Declaring "I am in command of this ship," Damon not only hijacked the show Thursday night, but he brought along a little big-name help.
Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Robert De Niro, Don Cheadle, John Krasinski and Oprah Winfrey all played a part.
Andy Garcia sat in as sidekick. Sheryl Crow led the band.
And where was Kimmel? Oh, he was there, all right: gagged and tied on the back of the set, as Damon took over.

Heroic World War II general and president of Columbia University – and one of the best-liked American presidents – Dwight D. Eisenhower wasn't particularly known for his sense of humor, but that may change now that he is being played by Robin Williams.
As seen in this photo, Williams, 61, is made up to play Eisenhower during his White House years. Ike was 62 when first sworn in, and 71 when he handed over the reins to the 43-year-old JFK in 1961.
And the role is for The Butler, an adaptation of a Washington Post article about the real-life Eugene Allen, a White House domestic-staff member who served under eight First Families. Forest Whitaker plays Allen and Oprah Winfrey will play his wife.

Third time's the charm.
Robin Williams exchanged vows with graphic designer Susan Schneider on Saturday at the Meadowood Resort in Napa Valley, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
The couple met shortly before the actor and comedian, 60, had heart surgery in 2009, according to Britain's The Guardian, which also reports that Schneider helped nurse him back to health.
It's the third trip down the aisle for Williams, who has three children – Zachary, 28, Zelda, 22, and Cody, 19 – from his first two marriages. His previous wife, Marsha, filed for divorce in 2008.

Call it civic duty or patriotic pride, Hollywood is no stranger to showing support for the red, white and blue.

Whether based on real-life leaders or leaders created by a screenwriter's imagination, some of screen's heaviest hitters have taken their turn portraying the President of the United States. But who served the office best? Our faves are:
