'Kevin Can Wait' cancellation: CBS exec reveals what went wrong - via Aol
Of course, that reunion wasn't without controversy. "Kevin Can Wait" famously killed off the character of James' original co-star, Erinn Hayes, in order to make room for Remini -- a move that didn't sit well with everyone, and ended up playing a role in the show's eventual demise.

The show debuted in 2016 to high ratings and was one of the most watched new shows of last season, but ratings declined amidst a creative change up. During season one, showrunner and co-creator Bruce Helford left to work on ABC’s Roseanne. After that, the show decided to kill off its female lead, Erinn Hayes, at the end of the first season. The move was meant so that they could replace her with Kevin James’s former King of Queens co-star Leah Remini, but fans did not take it well and ratings never recovered.

But Kevin Can Wait, which marked King of Queens star Kevin James' return to the network, won't return for a third season. Neither will Superior Donuts, the sitcom that stars Judd Hirsch as a coffee-shop owner. And procedural drama Scorpion was stung by cancellation after four seasons.

That's the question to which I dedicated eight months of exhaustive research. Was her death an accident? Certainly, "Kevin" is prone to pratfalls. Or was it on purpose? Could this have been a calculated murder that spoke to the darkness within this seemingly family-friendly half-hour sitcom—a darkness lurking beneath the American Dream, within all of us? Through careful consideration of the next 24 episodes, I found a catalog of evidence pointing to possible motives for Donna's death.
Kevin James returns to series television in an irresistible comedy about a newly retired police officer looking forward to quality time with his family - and his fellow retired cops. When his oldest daughter announces she's dropping out of college to support her fiancé, Kevin knows his only choice is to move them both into his home to keep her in school. The fun has to wait… his family is his new beat on Kevin Can Wait.
Does this series make light of potentially serious scenarios? Where is the line between comedy and reality? Are you ever offended by comedy styles you see or hear? Is offensiveness something that should be considered, or should anything go in this genre? Kevin's an exaggerated midlifer with modest ambitions and a <...> - by Common Sense Media [Emily Ashby]

CBS has been providing top rated TV shows for over a decade. As a comedy lover, I am always excited to see what new shows ‘The Eye’ will produce to follow in the footsteps of greats such as How I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory.

The network wasn’t about to take any chances, either. (According to trade accounts, CBS chief Leslie Moonves sat in on table reads.) CBS wanted something with mass appeal as opposed to just regional appeal, and one result is a largely generic Long Island. Maybe the family lives in Suffolk, but could just as easily <...> - by Newsday [Verne Gay]
In this series James plays a family man who’s ready to retire when his adult daughter decides to move back in with the folks and brings with her her strange fiancé. He apparently has two other children as well, but they were nowhere to be seen in the pilot. Family sit-coms have proven to work well, ala shows like <...> - by New York Observer [Anne Easton]
