First up, we have the comedies.
It may be the presence of Kelly Clarkson that inspires it, but everyone sings. Like everyone. Yay!
“The Millers” starring Will Arnett, Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges.
There is much more of Martindale and Bridges in this version. This is a good move on CBS’ part. A less-good move would be the ever-prevalent laugh track. It’s hardly necessary. Then there’s the best move — Arnett and Martindale reenacting “Dirty Dancing.”
“We Are Men” stars Jerry O’Connell, Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn and Chris Smith as a bunch of men.
Finally, there is “Mom,” a new Chuck Lorre comedy starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney.
CBS also released one drama trailer, for “Hostages,” with Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott.
Potential assassination, a family held hostage, ambiguous characters and more. This is on CBS?
(Note: Apologies to those who wanted to see more of the Josh Holloway drama, “Intelligence.” CBS hasn’t released that one yet.)
