E! Online reports that The King of Queens will end in May. Read this next bit quick, and then I’ll explain why you should care.
CBS is taking back the keys to the castle in Queens.
The network has announced that the latest season of The King of Queens will also be its last.
Currently in its ninth year, the blue-collar family comedy is the longest-running sitcom on television right now, taking over the title this year when Will & Grace and That ’70s Show left the airwaves.
While the series, centering on UPS driver Doug (Kevin James), his hard-working wife Carrie (Leah Remini) and her eccentric father (Jerry Stiller, of course), largely flew under the radar, airing on Monday nights alongside Emmy favorite Everybody Loves Raymond, it was a steady presence for CBS over the years.
More on how J. Harvey is going to miss Kevin James after the jump (the link is below).
I *heart* Kevin James. Big, lovable, beefy. And funny! Maybe he’s not your pony-tailed Orlando Bloom or your chiseled out of gold Brad Pitt, but you can split a sub and a six-pack with him and he can tell dirty jokes. That’s hot.
Err, uh yeah and his wife on the show is a Scientologist in real-life. There! That’s some gossip! (I’m really reaching here just to show photos of Kevin James…sad, really.)
