Seems the kind of thing you'd watch too Adders, so have you been giving it a watch?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Can_Wait

Never heard of it, but the Wikipedia page reads like something i'd watch.

What channel is it on over here and what time?

Must be popular if it's been picked up for a full 24 episode series because TV executives Stateside love cancelling shows too soon.

It's on E4 Adders. I record it at silly time on a Friday morning as I believe it's on about 9PM on a Thursday...after Big Bang.

It's only 2 episodes in over here so you've not missed too much. Taylor Spreitler of Mellisa and Joey fame is back as a daughter in this too, and Kevin James is usually a good watch. It's about 20 mins an episode too so not too hard to follow.

Ohhh I was a fan of her so I will give it a go.

I'm sure both episodes will be on catch up to try out.

I need a new comedy to get into.

Watched episode one and quite liked it, always enjoyed Kevin James in King of Queens and most of his comedy movies are at least watchable.

I'm sure I saw somewhere Adam Sandler cameos through the series at some point, would make sense considering how often they make films together.

This along with New Girl and Brooklyn Nine Nine are the only sitcoms I'm really in to at the moment. Watched episode one of The Detroiters but wasn't too sure about it.

The cameo episode for Adam Sandler as someone he used to work with was funny.

Shocked the mother has been fired for season 2 just so they could make Leah Remini the lead woman and try and rehash King Of Queens.

It's been voted the best new comedy and has really good ratings so it's stupid they would ruin what the show is about to try and recreate on screen chemistry by an old couple.

I will miss the mum she's hot and looks nothing like 41.

I have to agree, it's a disgrace they've sacked Erinn Hayes. Trying to rehash anything is going to do down like a lead balloon....so let's see how it plays out.

I have mixed feelings about the axing of the Wife/Mum, I do agree she and Kevin have good chemistry and she's a entertaining character and if the show is doing decent ratings surely it's a case of if it ain't broke don't fix it? Plus as a couple and a family they've been portrayed as pretty solid so would seem hard to suddenly split them and write her out.

But then again I was a fan of King of Queens and it was a hugely successful show so you can understand them wanting to recapture the old magic.

Maybe there's more to this than meets the eye, perhaps there were behind the scenes issues or the actress wanted to quit?

Either way I hope this somewhat dramatic change doesn't hurt the show as I'm really enjoying it. Would love to see a few more Sandler cameos.

Apparently the reason for axing the wife is because they felt the show didn't have legs with the current format.

I'm inclined to agree. It's a nice easy watch but with 24 episodes a season coming up with fresh material was going to be hard with the season one set up, I found that after about 15 or so episodes I was finding it a bit stale and repetitive, with the whole retired husband, wife and kids scenario there was only so many directions you could go in.

The new idea sees Kevin as a single Dad and running a Security business with Leah Remini. Apparently this was the original plan but they decided to introduce a wife in to the mix.
