Robin Williams' return to network TV was for but one season, as it turned out. "The Crazy Ones" is done. CBS announced a handful of cancellations earlier today, but this is The One -- the one that's a big deal because of the cast (Sarah Michelle Gellar included) and because talents quite as giant as Robin Williams don't come around all that often ... but this clearly didn't catch.

Meanwhile, "The Mentalist" will be back next season. CBS announced the renewal of virtually its entire schedule recently, but this was noticeably -- ominously -- not included, which clearly meant one thing: There was a tough negotiation underway. And now, resolved.
