NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — In this episode of “22 Minutes,” Emmy and Tony award-winning actor Judd Hirsch stops by to talk about his new CBS sitcom “Superior Donuts” and the show he is best known for, “Taxi.”

On “Superior Donuts,” Hirsch plays cranky Chicago donut shop owner Arthur Przybyszewski who is unwilling to be dragged into the 21st century.

Hirsch is best known for playing cab driver Alex Reiger on the ’70s sitcom Taxi. When asked if there was anything wild and crazy from his “Taxi” days, Hirsch said, “I can’t speak of the things that happened to me because I dare not. What can I say we … you had to do the unexpected. If you were going to be on television. If you were going to do that show about cab drivers in New York the best thing that you could do on a show like this would to be surprising.”

“Superior Donuts” premieres on CBS Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8:30 p.m.
