It seems that fans of comedian Kevin James will get to see him on the same network that he became big on. On September 19th, Kevin James makes his return to CBS in a show called Kevin Can Wait. This is going to be Kevin James’ second time being on CBS as the King of Queens ran on CBS from 1998-2007.
When King of Queens was on TV, it seemed like every comedian had a television show. You had Everyone Loves Raymond with Ray Romano, Seinfeld with Jerry Seinfeld, The George Lopez Show with George Lopez, Rescue Me with Dennis Leary, and others. After King of Queens ended in 2007, it seemed that Kevin James would never be back in a regular comedy show.
The premise of his new show Kevin Can Wait is about Kevin James playing a newly retired police officer who lives in Massapequa, New York. During his retirement, he looks forward to spending more time at home with his wife and three kids. However, he soon discovers that the challenge he faces at home with his family is much tougher than what he had faced while being an officer. It should be noted that the show was taped in Bethpage, New York in Gold Coast Studios.
I have not seen an episode of the show yet but I have seen trailers of it and I have read up on it. From what I saw on the trailers, it seems like it could have been an exact duplicate of his original show. I have read great things on it as a whole, and I am very curious to see how it does. It should also be noted that for the first few weeks being on air it will be following the Big Bang Theory.
When Big Bang Theory moves to Thursday night on October 27, then Kevin Can Wait will take over that time slot. If you were a fan of King of Queens or Kevin James, then I would suggest you watch this show when it premieres on September 19th.
