I loved King of Queens Leah Remini and Kevin James have good chemistry so I'm willing to give them a shot most definitely King of Queens was very funny very good and had good topics in it I hope I see the same in this

Was just OK, then horendous season 2 premier killed it.

Season one was alright with Kevins wife to balace out the comedy with jabs to counter Kevins typical bufoonery. SPOILER. Season 2 they killed the wife off and then played it off like the loss of a dead goldfish. To top it off they have Kevins old King Of Queens wife playing a surogate mother. The whole thing was tasteless and we won't be watching any more. Now it's just dumb and mindless ala' Kevins dead movie career.
