Kevin Can Wait is a hilarious sitcom that aired on CBS from 2016-2018. The show features the incomparable Kevin James as the lead character, Kevin Gable, a recently retired police officer from Long Island. After working in law enforcement for almost 30 years, Kevin is ready to take on his new role--staying at home with his wife and three kids.

The first season introduces Kevin as a new retiree who is trying to find his place in the world now that he no longer has a job. He's excited to spend more time with his family, but that proves to be more difficult than he anticipated. His wife, Donna, played by Erinn Hayes, is a nurse who works long hours and is often tired when she comes home. Kevin tries to help out around the house, but his lack of experience with domestic chores often leads to comedic mishaps.

Kevin's children are also a source of entertainment on the show. His oldest daughter, Kendra, played by Taylor Spreitler, is in college and dating a hippie named Chale, played by Ryan Cartwright. Kevin constantly tries to set Kendra up with other young men, convinced that Chale is not right for her. Kevin's middle child, Sara, is played by Mary-Charles Jones. She's a bit of a troublemaker and often gets into mischief with her friends. Lastly, there's Jack, Kevin's youngest son played by James DiGiacomo. Jack is a bit of an oddball and often says things that surprise his family.

As the show progresses, Kevin realizes that staying at home isn't as easy as he thought it would be. He misses his old life as a police officer and begins to take odd jobs to stay busy. He decides to start his own security company, but that's easier said than done. Kevin's business ventures often lead to disastrous results, but he never gives up on his dream of being his own boss. Along with his best friend, Duffy, played by Lenny Venito, Kevin tries his hand at everything from party planning to personal training.

Throughout the show, Kevin's family is always there to support him, even if they don't always agree with his decisions. His daughter Kendra gets engaged to Chale, which causes tension between Kevin and his daughter. Kevin's wife Donna is always looking out for his best interests, even if he doesn't always see it that way. Kevin's brother, Kyle, played by Gary Valentine, adds to the comedic moments on the show with his quirky personality.

The show features a variety of recurring characters, including Kevin's former police partner, Mott, played by Ryan Cartwright, and Goody, played by Leonard Earl Howze. The show's humor is often derived from Kevin's mishaps and misadventures as he tries to navigate his new life as a retiree. The show's focus is on family and the importance of sticking together through the ups and downs of life.

The show's two seasons are filled with heartwarming moments, laugh-out-loud comedy, and relatable storylines. The cast is outstanding, and Kevin James shines as the lovable and bumbling Kevin Gable. The show does an excellent job of balancing humor with more serious moments, and the characters are all well-developed and endearing.

Overall, Kevin Can Wait is a must-watch sitcom for fans of comedy and family-centered shows. The show may have been short-lived, but it left a lasting impact on its viewers. The show's messages about family, friendship, and never giving up on your dreams are timeless, and the show is sure to provide countless hours of laughter and entertainment.
