Show Summary

The King of Queens revolves around Doug Heffernan (Kevin James, Everybody Loves Raymond), a Queens, N.Y., parcel delivery man with simple desires. Among his prized possessions is a 70-inch television that his lovely wife, Carrie (Leah Remini, Fired Up), provided for him. However, now that Carrie's widowed father, Arthur (Jerry Stiller, Seinfeld), lives with them, Doug's television room has become Arthur's bedroom. Doug and his sports-watching buddies, Spence (Patton Oswalt, Crank Yankers) and Deacon (Victor Williams, The Animatrix)--and the beloved television--have been relegated to the garage, and Doug now shares his castle with a very eccentric father-in-law and his very unusual habits.

Theme Song "My eyes are gettin' weary, My back is gettin' tight, I'm sittin' here in traffic, On the Queensborough bridge tonight, But I don't care cuz all I wanna do, Is cash my check and drive right home to you, Cuz baby all my life I will be driving home to you."

    • best show EVER

      the cast and writing is superb

      I love everyone on this show

      I DVR every episode continuously for few years so late at night before sleep I catch a couple eps for the great comedy

      I'm seriously addicted and have probably seen every episode 5-6 times and I still crack up

      this is totally my sense of humor completely

      I have a few hundred channels to watch but I always end my day with King of Queens because I know it makes me happy. How can anyone not relate?moreless

    • Everyone listen up

      It's all personal preference if you like the show or not. Therefore it's not really right to rate a show. Everyone is different. So everyone that says it ain't funny are wrong. Some are gonna think the show is funny while others aren't.
    • Pretty good!

      I really like the show. Kevin James is a great comedic television actor. He makes it seem easy to do, when in fact, it's extremely difficult. That being said, as much as I used to enjoy Jerry Stiller, he doesn't even phone it on on this show. He's just absolutely terrible on this show. Every scene he opens his mouth, cocks his head back, clasps his hand together & says his line. Just terrible acting. He's NOT funny on this show. He's funny in other things, so if you've seen those, you realize just how terrible he is in The King Of Queens. I'm literally embarrassed for him. THAT'S how bad he is. Not Funny. Phones it in. Doesn't even try at all. Oh, and WORST THEME MUSIC IN THE HISTORY OF EVERYTHING !! It might even be worse than Stiller !!moreless
    • A clever title for Doug Morin is impossible.
