    • I am not happy they did that on Kevin Can Wait, and I am curious to see it tonight. I really liked it as it was last season.

    • Yeah Erinn Hayes was awesome on Kevin Can Wait I think they made a bad decision there but Leah Remini fit really well in the two episodes she was on last year. My biggest problem is how everything fits in now with these changes. Going to be interesting to see tonight.

      • I do wonder if there was something going on behind the scenes…maybe they didn’t get along or something. Of, if it was just a way to get Leah back on there permanently.

        • You know what your speculation is interesting because I’ve actually thought about that as well. It doesn’t sound like she got fired just to get out of the way. I think there’s something fishy that went on behind the scenes maybe either Kevin or Leah or somebody else like a producer or something didn’t get along with Erinn Hayes or maybe they had to get her out of the way to make room for Leah. I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody made a request behind her back to get her off the show.

          The whole thing has been pretty nasty as they really tried to avoid bringing her up on Monday’s show and kept the family and Chael on the show surprisingly. Seeing the way Monday’s episode went I was shocked they really needed Erinn out that badly because Leah hasn’t replaced her as some mother figure or wife yet for Kevin. I thought they did a good job when Leah was on the last two episodes last season balancing her character out with Leah’s so none of this makes sense to me.

          • Although with the way we know everything about everything nowadays, it seems like we would have heard if there was any strife on the set, so just not sure. I haven’t watched Monday’s episode yet, have it recorded.

            • That’s true but there’s still some good kept secrets behind the scenes but eventually they get revealed. Erinn’s been a complete professional so she didn’t complain about anything online to us.

              I saw Monday’s episode and it was okay I just wasn’t interested in the subject matter, it had the same feel just without Erinn’s character. I’ll keep watching but I know some people loved and hated it.

              • I did watch it last night, finally, and found it just ok, as you state. Not sure if I will continue watching. I was very disappointed in Me, Myself, and I.

                • Thanks for letting me know you saw it, yeah it was just ok could be better, next week judging from the promos might be better. I would say if you have time check it out next week and see if it’s still worth your time. At the end of the day for me the show has problems that need to be worked out but Big Kev is the main reason to watch because he’s just too funny and Leah works well with him. I honestly don’t like Kevin’s family they should’ve cut them out of the cast.

                  Me, Myself, & I was terrible to me so it wouldn’t surprise me if CBS removes it by November for Man with a Plan. The only good thing about the show is Jaleel White from Family Matters being on it because I want to see him use his talents on a better comedy in the future.

                  • I will probably try it again since there is not much else on at that time. I will not be watching Me Myself and I, for sure. I found it just sad all around. I hope they do bring back MWaP quickly. That show really grew on me as the season went on. I think it really improved.

                    • Yeah Mondays are perfect for me with KCW, I usually start DVRing stuff after Monday Night Football and I usually watch KCW before DWTS. I probably honestly wouldn’t be able to see KCW if it aired on Thursdays the night makes a huge difference.

                      I’m with you on Me Myself and I’m not returning to that garbage it’s gonna be gone anyways for MWAP. Yeah MWAP was a surprise for me because I didn’t like the pilot but it grew on me thankfully I gave it a second chance, there’s a lot of people that thought MWAP was better than KCW last year.
