"Vocal Discord" -- Carrie and Doug decide that marriage counseling may be in order when Carrie's transcribing machine records one of their typical arguments, on the eighth season premiere of THE KING OF QUEENS, Monday, Sept. 19 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Rob Schiller directed the script written by Chris Downey, one of the show's executive producers.
In an effort to save money, Doug and Carrie ask their neighbor Glenn for counseling since he happens to be a marriage counselor. Glenn agrees to help out only to have his problem-solving techniques backfire, causing their arguments to get worse. Meanwhile, when Arthur stumbles upon the recording of Doug and Carrie's argument, he and his partner, Betty (guest star Charlotte Rae), decide to reenact the argument during theatre night at the senior center.
THE KING OF QUEENS revolves around Doug and Carrie Heffernan, a loving blue-collar couple from Queens, N.Y., who share their humble home with her eccentric father Arthur. After a long day's work as a parcel deliveryman, Doug retreats to his home for some peace and quiet, which is often interrupted by Carrie's slightly bizarre father. Doug's only refuge is the little time he spends alone with Carrie and in the company of his buddies Deacon, Spence and Danny, who he turns to for advice that just might make his life better, if he only bothered to follow it.
THE KING OF QUEENS is produced by Hanley Productions Inc. and CBS Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television. Michael Weithorn is creative consultant. Tony Sheehan, Kevin James, Jeff Sussman, Chris Downey, David Bickel, Ilana Wernick and Rock Reuben are executive producers.
