Airdate: Kevin Can Wait


New US sitcom Kevin Can Wait, starring Kevin James (The King of Queens) begins on Nine next week.

Nine will pair the series with a new Big Bang episode, ahead of summer programming.

Kevin Can Wait follows newly-retired police officer Kevin, who discovers he faces tougher challenges at home than he ever did on the streets. It stars Kevin James, Erinn Hayes, Taylor Spreitler, Ryan Cartwright, Mary-Charles Jones, James DiGiacomo, Leonard Earl Howze, Gary Valentine and Lenny Venito.

Former Anger Management showrunner Bruce Helford was recently announced as being replaced by former Cheers scribe Rob Long.

The nature of the “creative differences” involved is not immediately clear, though its said they had different visions of how the show should play out over its just-ordered extra nine episodes.

The show has been ordered for a full season.

8pm Tuesday November 22 on Nine.


  1. I thought Nine had no interest in any new US shows anymore, thought they were all about the Aussie content. this and that Chicago show, next year Lethal Weapon is another. what gives? make up your mind Nine!

    • Kevin James can only play one character Doug Heffernan. And I would go as far as saying it’s King of Queens without Arthur and a likeable version of Carrie.
