As others have said, I too was hoping for more of a sequel to King of Queens. I will watch a rerun of that whenever I see one -- and we all know you can catch one on at any minute of the day or night.
And you know -- this show is set up almost exactly like King of Queens; but this does not work.
The wife is wrong. Let's face it; we all want Carrie, not this too- pretty actress who says "Ah, honey" no matter what jackass thing Kevin does. She is just off.

The Greek chorus, including Danny, is back -- but they seem off as well.
I guess it was the writing and the whole dynamic that made KoQ a hit, and this a flop
