It was a TV battle of the giants.
Robin Williams, starring in his first regular series since Mork & Mindy, going head-to-head with Michael J. Fox, who plays a former TV news anchor sidelined by Parkinson's disease.
The result—not even close. Robin Williams won hands down.
Media expert Mary Murphy told INSIDE EDITION, "For Robin Williams, this is a major comeback. He hasn't been on television in decades."
Robin Williams was given a big boost by the hour-long season premiere of The Big Bang Theory, which drew a huge audience of close to 19 million.
The good news for Michael J. Fox is he won't be head-to-head with Robin Williams' new show every Thursday. Next week he takes on Two-And-A-Half Men.
