The King of Queens was a very successful sitcom for CBS 15 years ago. But times have changed and so have audiences. Will Kevin James’ new sitcom, Kevin Can Wait, also be a hit in the ratings for the network? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
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.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
