Storyline

KEVIN CAN WAIT stars Kevin James as a retired police officer who is setting out on a fresh career path as he rises to the challenge of being a newly single dad. His kids, Sara, Jack and Kendra, are grateful to him for making sure they're OK but decide it's time for him to get out of the house, so they turn to Vanessa (Leah Remini), his former police partner, for help. Vanessa has left the force to launch her own private security firm, and she makes Kevin an offer he can't refuse - to be her new business partner. Although the job isn't always glamorous and they rarely see eye to eye, Kevin and Vanessa share an undeniable bond from their years working together. Also, Kendra and her fiancé, Chale, face issues of their own, including becoming newlyweds and figuring out how they will support themselves. Once again, life has thrown Kevin some curveballs, so his dreams of an early retirement will just have to wait a little longer, and his family will always come first.

Was OK, now.. are they paying writers for this material?
16 November 2017 | by phillyprncSee all my reviews

I actually grew to kinda like KCW last season. (season 1) It was never LOL funny, but charming, cute, fun and a decent 20 minutess of mindless entertainment.

Cue season 2. The wife is dead. It has been used as a vehicle to redo the King Of Queens (which I loved when it was on). But the situations the writers get these character into are have sunk to sophomoric and moronic. Sophmoronic! (LOL> As lame as that is, its better than anything I heard on toady's episode!) Turned off mid-episode for the second episode in a row today. My last, I'm afraid.
