Great Show!!!!!!!

This show is hilarious. I actually didn't watch it that much until I got really interested in it. Kevin James gets you sucked into the show.

I actually thought it would have been off the air right now but now I love it. It captured me for one reason and that is Arthur.

Arther plays Carrie's father who is Jerry Stiller. I thought it would be like Seinfeld with Festaval thingy. But it actually isn't.

I think everyone should see at least one episode to see if you like especially Carrie's 30th Birthday or the one where Deacon and his wife go some where cause of a family crisis and Doug and Carrie watch Deacon's kids. It is a very addicting show. I give it probably an A+

Or as I say 10/10
