'King of Queens' Back on the Monday Block

(Posted August 15, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( - Television's sitcom "King" has reclaimed his throne, at least in terms of scheduling.

With its eighth year set to start in September, "The King of Queens" is back in CBS' Monday lineup after spending two seasons on Wednesdays, where the show's summer reruns also are continuing. Few other changes are expected for the series about deliveryman Doug Heffernan (Kevin James), wife Carrie (Leah Remini) and father-in-law Arthur (Jerry Stiller), who shares the couple's home in the title New York borough.

And why mess with success? Not only are the new CBS episodes well-rated, repeats of earlier tales have become syndication staples.

"It's pretty surreal," James says of approaching season eight. "The first few years of this show, we were always looking over our shoulder, just in disbelief that it was even happening. You're always worried that the ax is going to drop, but we just continued to kind of hit a groove, and it felt better and better as we went along. It's pretty great to be hitting year eight of a show. I think it says something."
