‘Kevin Can Wait’ Episode Guide (Jan. 15): Kevin and Vanessa Square Off With a Business Rival

“Monkey Fist Insecurity” (01/15/18) – After Kevin and Vanessa nail a pitch for a new job for their security company, Monkey Fist, they run into Frank (Ricardo Chavira), the owner of a rival company who is determined to put them out of business by pitting Kevin and Vanessa against each other, on “Kevin Can Wait,” Monday, Jan. 15 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Ricardo Chavira (Frank) and Jorge Chapa (Mr. Dominguez).

“Monkey Fist Insecurity” was written by Peter Correale and Avin Das. It was directed by Andy Fickman.

CBS’s “Kevin Can Wait” stars Kevin James as a retired police officer who is setting out on a fresh career path as he rises to the challenge of being a newly single dad. His kids, Sara, Jack and Kendra, are grateful to him for making sure they’re OK but decide it’s time for him to get out of the house, so they turn to Vanessa, his former police partner, for help.

Vanessa has left the force to launch her own private security firm, and she makes Kevin an offer he can’t refuse – to be her new business partner. Although the job isn’t always glamorous and they rarely see eye to eye, Kevin and Vanessa share an undeniable bond from their years working together.

Also, Kendra and her fiancé, Chale, face issues of their own, including becoming newlyweds and figuring out how they will support themselves. Once again, life has thrown Kevin some curveballs, so his dreams of an early retirement will just have to wait a little longer, and his family will always come first.

“Kevin Can Wait” stars Kevin James (Kevin Gable), Leah Remini (Vanessa Cellucci), Taylor Spreitler (Kendra Gable), Mary-Charles Jones (Sara Gable), James DiGiacomo (Jack Gable), Ryan Cartwright (Chale), Gary Valentine (Kyle), and Leonard Earl Howze (Goody)

“Kevin Can Wait” is executive produced by Kevin James, Jeff Sussman, Rob Long, Rock Reuben, Andy Fickman and Steve Mosko. It’s produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Sony Pictures Television. The sitcom is taped in New York.
