Well, it’s related to Leah Remini joining “Kevin Can Wait,” but the blame isn’t hers to carry.
Probably the most significant casualty at CBS this season was the Kevin James comedy “Kevin Can Wait,” canceled after two seasons as the network’s Monday 8 p.m. anchor.
The series ranked as the most watched and highest rated new comedy last season.
After its end, the show made a controversial casting change, killing off lead Erinn Hayes’ character and bringing in James’ “The Kings of Queens” co-star Leah Remini.
Viewers did not take it well, and ratings for “Kevin Can Wait” posted steep declines in Season 2, sending the series from the top of the heap to the bubble list.
On “Kevin Can Wait,” James starred as a retired police officer who is setting out on a fresh career path.
