[ # ] The sorry reason that Kevin Can Wait killed off Erinn Hayes’ character
October 16th, 2017 under CBS, Kevin James

Even though Kevin Can Wait started its first season top of the charts, it ended somewhere in the middle. Then Leah Remini guest starred on the show and people started talking about the sitcom. Then shortly after the first season ended, they announced that they fired Erinn Hayes and were hiring Remini as a series regular for this season. Therefore, people wondered how they were going to explain what happened to Kevin’s wife? Over the summer, they announced they were killing her off and they did it with barely a mention.

Now 2 weeks into the 2nd season and the ratings are again so-so, James finally revealed why they really switched up the show. He told The NY Daily News, “The plot of the show didn’t have enough drive,” Then he added, “If we got through a second season, I wouldn’t see us getting through a third one. We were literally just running out of ideas.” How do you run out of ideas after just one season. I mean, he did 9 seasons of King of Queens and you are going to tell me they had 9 years of ideas for that show?

He also said, “Now, I have to deal with my daughter in a different way, and she’s gonna go to college, or one’s getting married, or the holidays. And it deals with things in a different, weightier way.” Hard not to make a weightier joke here, so I won’t because it is way too easy.

Why can’t they just admit the show was not doing well and they wanted Remini to save it. At least that is how I and a lot of other people see it.

On a personal note, it is the only show I do not watch Mondays on CBS. Never got King of Queens, and I will never get this show.
