CBS admits Kevin Can Wait fans weren't happy with the decision to kill off Erinn Hayes' wife character
“Creatively, the show made a choice at the beginning of last year,” said CBS Entertainment senior executive vice president Thom Sherman. “We agreed to go along with it and unfortunately the audience didn’t respond to it.” CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl cited "the numbers" in deciding to cancel the Kevin James series. “It was a strong show for us, it’s had a lot of decline this year, it was heading in the wrong direction," said Kahl. "The numbers were going down as the year went on and looking forward, it didn’t look like a show that was going to be strong enough to anchor a night for us going forward.”
