Long live the King, in syndication

Jamesremini_2Good for "The King of Queens" for going out in style with its sweet hourlong finale, "The China Syndrome, Parts 1 and 2," on Monday. I’ve always thought the show was underrated, particularly Leah Remini in her role as leading lady to Kevin James. And how can you not appreciate a show that kept Jerry Stiller Stillermeara_5and Anne Meara together in primetime on and off for nine years. "Queens" beat the odds from the start when it was passed on at the pilot stage by NBC and rescued by CBS. It was a workhorse for the Eye throughout its run, which wrapped last night from 8-9 p.m. with a 5.1 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 and 13.5 million viewers, according to Nielsen prelims.
