There is a shakeup on the new CBS comedy Kevin Can Wait starring Kevin James whose showrunner Bruce Helford has departed. Sitcom veteran Helford co-created the series, recently given a full-season order by CBS, with James and James’ frequent collaborator Rock Reuben. I hear Helford stepped down over creative differences with James. He will be succeeded by another long-time sitcom writer-producer, Cheers alum Rob Long, who has come on board as executive producer/showrunner.

Horrible show, typical Hollywood premise, full of Kevin James drivel.
A slob who is always paired with a cute wife. Get real!
