Why was Kevin Can Wait cancelled? Recently, CBS chief Kelly Kahl explained the network’s decision to end the TV show after two seasons, Deadline reports.
The sitcom stars James as Kevin Gable, a former police officer who, after the death of his wife, finds himself working for his old rival, Vanessa (Leah Remini), at her security firm. The cast also includes Taylor Spreitler, Ryan Cartwright, Mary-Charles Joes, James DiGiacomo, Gary Valentine, and Leonard Earl Howze.
Speaking to Deadline, Kahl revealed CBS cancelled Kevin Can Wait because of low ratings:
The numbers. It was a strong show for us, it’s had a lot of decline this year, it was heading in the wrong direction. The numbers were going down as the year went on and looking forward, it didn’t look like a show that was going to be strong enough to anchor a night for us going forward.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Kevin Can Wait? Are you sad it’s been cancelled?
I loved the show , love Kevin and glad to see Leah comeback . They were too strict on the numbers they’re looking for
Sad to see this one go. I enjoyed the dynamic between James and Remini and, despite the lost wife and disappearing children, was hoping Season 3 would be the time for some deeply emotional closure and explanations before they roared back into the hilarious repartee they were so good at.
I was sad,I liked Kevin can wait.It was a decent show,no cussing,or sex.
The show had no chance !!!! Man with a plan following it it was wrong programmng. Bad time slot and California wanted the show done there . There punishing Kevin james!!!!!He wanted to make Long Island a cool place!!! But California wants all the production!!!Tuff Brake!! Put james together on Rosan show!! Mix it up
I told everyone at cbs that it was a mistake to put leah remni on the show….maybe you shoukd listen to the ones who watch your shows….He would still be going strong if they didnt get rid of his wife….another big mistake….try the show without leah and see the ratings go back up
I. Give. You. A. Couple of reasons. Why. 1 Kevin James thought he was a big. **** and Fired. His. Erinn H (who played his Wife &. Hire LR. Well you see how well that turned out. & 3. He. Wasn’t. Funny&. His. Show. SUCKS & So DOES. He.
Thank Goodness! They ended the show and it could have happened earlier…. I sat through the entire season and didn’t even crack a smile. It was so pathetic and ridiculous. I liked both of them in King of Queens – but he didn’t play such an extremely idiotic person as he did in this show. It was marginally better in the first season with the person who played his wife. Yeah to the cancellation!
So sad, he has the best out look on real like. He is funny man, his the perfect type of father, I love him.
Back to Paul Blart 3!
Leah Remini’s best work was Saved By The Bell: The Beach Season.
Glad it’s cancelled. Leah Remini on the show turned me off. She’s got a bad reputation.
Leah Remini is a turn off,and her very sarcastic put down personality.His first wife Erinn Hayes complimented James very well with the family members,and i liked Spreitler she was a sweetie,and the Englisg guy was quitley funny.When Remini joined the series,i got bored very quickly
I love Kevin James and Leah Remini. I am sad it’s cancelled. They have great chemistry working together. I hope they will try another show together. I would love a King of Queens reunion. I miss all the crew from that show.
Glad it was cancelled. I stopped watching when they fired Erinn Hayes. I liked King of Queens, but definitely did not want to watch Leah Remini again. Karma stinks.
