What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, Kevin Can Wait revolves around Kevin Gable (Kevin James), a newly retired police officer. After 30 years on the force, he’s looking forward to relaxing and spending quality time with his wife (Erinn Hayes) and their young kids (Mary-Charles Jones and James DiGiacomo). That plan goes awry when his elder daughter (Taylor Spreitler) and her fiance (Ryan Cartwright) move in. As a result, Kevin’s retirement dreams get put on hold. Kevin’s friends are played by Leonard Earl Howze, Gary Valentine, and Lenny Venito.
Season One Ratings
Kevin James starred on the successful Monday night sitcom The King of Queens for nine seasons, producing more than 200 episodes. CBS was hoping to strike Monday night gold again with Kevin Can Wait. The series had a very positive launch with a 2.6 rating in the demo and 11.08 million viewers, thanks in part to having The Big Bang Theory, CBS’ most popular comedy, as a lead-in. Kevin continued to do well — for awhile. Once Big Bang returned to Thursdays, the ratings for Kevin Can Wait saw a big drop and it’s not looking like a big hit any longer. Things aren’t looking so rosy but I suspect CBS will still renew it for a second season. The television vulture is watching closely.
