Posted on

Kevin’s wait is over for a verdict on his show’s third season. Unfortunately, the new ain’t good. CBS has canceled Kevin Can Wait after two seasons, marking the end of the Kevin James comedy.

The show averaged 7.7 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 including DVR playback.

CBS also canceled Mark Feuerstein comedy 9JKL, which had been averaging 6.3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the demo throughout its first season.

Joining them: Jeremy Piven’s Wisdom of the Crowd, (which drew an average of 8.5 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the demo, and was effectively canceled earlier this season) as well as the Bobby Moynihan comedy Me, Myself and I (6.1 million, 1.3 rating), and Living Biblically (5 million, 0.9 rating).

Surprisingly, the network renewed Elementary for a seventh season. The show, which stars Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, is listed as averaging a paltry 4.7 million viewers and a 0.6 rating in the demographic.

CBS also canceled comedy Superior Donuts and drama Scorpion earlier Saturday, while giving last-minute renewals to Criminal Minds, InstinctLife in Pieces, and Man With a Plan.
