<EM>King of Queens</EM>' Kevin James and Leah Remini King of Queens' Kevin James and Leah Remini

Why was The King of Queens conspicuously MIA from CBS' recent announcement of its renewed series? According to the New York Post, the holdup may be the result of a "holdup," seeing as contracts are up for stars Kevin James and Leah Remini, who each currently make about a half-mil per episode. "If I were on the air for so long [eight seasons], I'd be asking them to back the truck up to the bank," one insider tells the Post. A spokesperson for CBS had no comment on the sitch, but negotiations with the two actors are supposedly underway.
