(CNN/CBS) - Comedian Robin Williams has a new weekly gig.  He is returning to television.  CBS has announced he'll star in the new comedy "The Crazy Ones," from Executive Producer David E. Kelley.  

Williams will portray an unorthodox advertising genius at the helm of a powerful agency.  Sarah Michelle Gellar will play his daughter and business partner.  CBS is adding four new comedies next season.

The country group Lady Antebellum has scored its third number one album on the billboard 200 chart.  The latest from the trio, "Golden," debuted with 167-thousand copies sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan.  Two previous offerings, "Own the Night" from 2011, and "Need You Now" from 2010 also topped the chart.  The soundtrack from the new film "The Great Gatsby" debuted at number two on the chart this week.

The man who helped rescue three missing women in Cleveland is lending his face for a good cause. Hodge's in downtown Cleveland is selling  t-shirts and burgers to honor Charles Ramsey.  The shirts that bear his picture are for sale to benefit the women.  Ramsey is an employee at the restaurant.  Their two week special is the Ramsey Burger.

This may surprise you-- wealthy New York families have found a way to skip to the front of the line at Disney World.  They hire disabled tour guides.  That's according to social researcher-- Wednesday Martin.  He says he found out about the "underground network" while working on a book about New York City's Park Avenue elite.  Disney offers VIP tours and a fastpass service that allow people to avoid long lines. But Martin says it's cheaper to hire a black market handicapped guide.  A Walt Disney spokesperson said "it is unacceptable to abuse accommodations that were designed for guests with disabilities."  Disney is "reviewing the situation and will take appropriate steps to deter this type of activity."
