Kevin Can Wait: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Kevin Can Wait: Season 1 (2016-2017)



Critic Consensus: Kevin James proves a likable, funny lead, but Kevin Can Wait relies too heavily on predictable, unfunny jokes and a series of lackluster subplots to stand out from the crowd.

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11)

James has decent comic timing, but the pilot is relatively laughless.

Top Critic

In the end, Kevin James is an extremely likable and funny guy and while it's good to have him back on-screen making jokes, it's a shame that it can't be in a better show.

The meat-and-potatoes network sitcom James' fans expect, with an added bonus - Long Island.

Can the star of the show, let alone CBS, really believe in this material? It's one thing to put the brain in park after a long workday. It's quite another to pound it into mush.

The plot doesn't sound all that promising, but Kevin Can Wait actually qualifies as quality time.

Cleveland Plain Dealer

Sure, it's safe and a little dated, but Kevin James is always a welcome presence on my TV screen. (Just no cameos from Paul Blart, please and thank you.)
