News & Interviews for Kevin Can Wait: Season 1
James has decent comic timing, but the pilot is relatively laughless.
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.
While [Kevin James'] still amusing at times, he's not given great material, and his generic sitcom wife (Hayes) is no Leah Remini, whose chemistry with James in "Queens" made the show so popular.
