On Thursday's episode of The Crazy Ones (9/8c, CBS), Ashley Tisdale guest-stars as Kelsi Lasker, the obnoxious daughter of an important client who gets hired as an intern at Lewis, Roberts and Roberts.
Check out the exclusive clip below to see the less-than-stellar first impression her character makes on Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Simon (Robin Williams), Zach (James Wolk) and Andrew (Hamish Linklater). Looks like it's going to be a long three months at the firm!
The Crazy Ones airs Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS.

The Big Brother host appeared on Howard Stern's radio show this week, along with her Talkco-host Sharon Osbourne, and had some less-than-flattering things to say about The View's decision to add McCarthy to its roundtable earlier this year.
"What made The View so popular and so good was that it was five different women-from five different walks of life-discussing politics," Chen told Stern, after confirming that it was a "mistake" for the show to hire McCarthy. "What put them on the map and made them good and famous, they don't do that anymore. No one wants to hear Jenny McCarthy talk about the New York mayoral race or politics. They don't. That's not what you put Jenny McCarthy on for."
McCarthy made her debut on The View in September, after Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck left the show. "I think they were trying to lighten the mood at the table-more gossip, more fun, more laughs," Chen told Stern. "What happened was, in my opinion, The View doesn't know what it is now."
Despite her remarks, Chen apparently doesn't have anything personal against McCarthy. She called the former Playboy model "smart" and "talented," and even said that she would be a better fit on The Talk.

Disney Channel is turning to some of the darkest characters on the Disney shelf for its next live-action movie. Descendants will focus on the progeny of Disney baddies like Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar.
But the movie, directed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical), will follow these modern-day teens as they begin to question the evil in their hearts. Casting is currently under way for Descendants, which is set to begin production next spring and premiere in 2015.
"We mined Disney's treasure trove of stories and developed a new, comedic approach to the fabled characters everyone knows and loves," says Disney Channel president and chief creative officer Gary Marsh. "The result is a modern and unexpected re-interpretation of classic heritage characters utilizing contemporary, relatable settings and themes."
In the script, written by Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott (The Starter Wife, Runaway Bride), the teenage son of the King and Queen (Beauty and the Beast's Beast and Belle) prepares to take the throne. His first act: Giving the offspring of Cruella De Vil and her evil ilk a chance at redemption.
Those villains have been cast off and imprisoned on a forbidden island. But their offspring — Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay — are given a chance to enter the kingdom and join a prep school alongside the kids of Disney heroes like the Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan.
Do the evil teen offspring arrive to create chaos, or will they embrace goodness? Descendants is the latest major original movie production from Disney Channel, which boasts five of the top six movies in cable TV history among total viewers.
