Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The CBS Comedy Buzz Tour visited Columbia!  The bus parked at WLTX for News 19 This Morning Monday.

The summer-long road trip promoting this fall's CBS Comedy Lineup has traveled coast-to-coast, and veteran CBS reality star Burton Roberts is along for the ride.

Roberts was a contestant on CBS's "Survivor: Pearl Islands" in the series 7th season, and is helping CBS spread the word and build the buzz around the CBS fall lineup of comedies.

News 19 This Morning is hosting Roberts and the CBS Comedy Buzz Tour bus this morning as we learn more about the CBS Fall comedies.  

There are life-sized cutouts of CBS Comedy stars Robin Williams ("The Crazy Ones,") Anna Faris ("Mom,") Jim Parsons ("Big Bang Theory,") and Will Arnett ("The Millers.") 

New CBS Comedies The Crazy Ones, The Millers, Mom, and We Are Men are joining the fan favorites The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, and Two And A Half Men this fall.


MOM, to debut Monday, Sept. 23 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET), 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. MOM also stars Nate Corddry as Christy's married boss - and lover; French Stewart as the restaurant's hot-tempered chef; Sadie Calvano and Blake Garrett Rosenthal as Christy's children; Matt Jones as Christy's son's father; and Spencer Daniels as Christy's daughter's boyfriend. Chuck Lorre is an executive producer.

THE MILLERS, premiering Thursday, Sept. 26 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET), stars Will Arnett as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the singles' life until his parents (Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale and Emmy Award winner Beau Bridges) unexpectedly decide to divorce, leaving his meddlesome mother to move in with him. Meanwhile, Nathan's absent-minded dad imposes upon Nathan's sister, her husband and their daughter. Nathan's best friend and news cameraman (JB Smoove) was excited to be Nathan's wingman in the dating scene, but Nathan's mother manages to even cramp his style. Now, as Nathan and his sister settle in with their truly impossible parents, they both wonder just how long the aggravating adjustment period is going to last. Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia ("Raising Hope" and "My Name is Earl") is the executive producer.

In THE CRAZY ONES, to debut Thursday, Sept. 26 (9:00-9:30 PM, ET), Academy Award winner Robin Williams 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 plays Simon's focused, organized and driven daughter - who is also his partner at their powerful agency. THE CRAZY ONES also stars James Wolk, Hamish Linklater and Amanda Setton as staffers at the firm. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner David E. Kelley ("Ally McBeal" and "The Practice"), Bill D'Elia, Emmy Award winner Jason Winer ("Modern Family") are EP's.

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": 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); a small business owner who was caught having the world's worst affair (Kal Penn); and a speedo-wearing OB/GYN who's hiding his assets until his second divorce is settled (Jerry O'Connell).
