Justice for Erinn Hayes?
Kevin James’ comedy “Kevin Can Wait” was canceled after two seasons, including one with Erinn Hayes and one with Leah Remini. According to Entertainment Weekly, if you include DVR playback, “Kevin Can Wait” averaged 7.7 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among the advertiser-loving 18-49 demo.
On the other hand, “Elementary” was renewed for Season 7, which was something of a pleasant surprise. The Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu show was said to average only 4.7 million and a .6 demo rating.
CBS also renewed “Criminal Minds,” “Instinct,” “Life in Pieces,” “Celebrity Big Brother,” and “Man With a Plan.”
The network also officially axed “9JKL,” “Wisdom of the Crowd,” “Me, Myserlf and I,” “Superior Donuts,” “Scorpion,” and “Living Biblically.”
Kevin James and Leah Remini responded to the “Kevin Can Wait” cancellation:
I want to say thank you to all the fans for the love and support. I was so blessed to be able to work every day with the most amazing cast, crew, writers and support team! Thank you all! Thank you @cbstvstudios and thank you @sony for your constant dedication to the show. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world… Okay, maybe a season 3. Love to all.
I want to say thank you to the amazing cast, crew, producers, and the writers of @kevincanwaitcbs. You accepted me with open arms. For me to get to work with @officialkevinjames again day in and day out was a Godsend. I laughed everyday, and I will miss that the most. You don’t always get a second chance at something that meant so much to you and I did, and I am so grateful for it. It came at a time when I needed to laugh. So thank you all. I am so happy that it happened and I will miss seeing all of you. Thank you to @cbstv and @sony for a great time. #kevincanwait
