There are two TV shows with “Kevin” in the title — is that two too many?

  • Kevin Can Wait and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World are the only Kevin shows currently on TV, but ABC Family had Kevin From Work just two years ago. As Andrew Gruttadaro points out, “of the scripted shows on the four major networks that currently include a first name in the title—Kevin Can Wait, Young Sheldon, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, Bob’s Burgers, Will & Grace, and Marlon—33 percent of them feature a Kevin. Not since the Charlie Boom in the 1980s (Charlie’s Angels, Charles in Charge, Charlie & Co.) has one name earned such a large market share.” He adds: “Why? What is it about the name Kevin that makes it so agreeable to networks and their audiences? For what reason have we been doomed to the episodic lives of so many Kevins?”
