WHEN ARTHUR SETS THE BASEMENT ON FIRE, CARRIE
DECIDES IT'S TIME TO MOVE HIM INTO A RETIREMENT HOME,
ON "THE KING OF QUEENS," MONDAY, MAY 22
"Acting Out" -- When Carrie decides to put Arthur in a retirement home, Doug is delighted with the prospect of getting his basement back so that he can turn it into a media room, on THE KING OF QUEENS, Monday May 22 (8:00-8:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Rob Schiller, one of the series' executive producers, directed the episode written by Liz Astrof Aronauer and Michelle Nader.
While Doug is cleaning up the scorched basement in preparations for his new media room, he finds some playbills that reveal that Arthur was once a well-respected actor. When Doug confronts Arthur about his days in the theater, Arthur confirms that he was an actor, but that he gave it up to raise Carrie. Doug starts feeling guilty for abandoning Arthur and tries to convince Carrie to let him stay. Meanwhile, Danny and Spence agreed that after two years in their apartment, Spence would get the larger bedroom back from Danny, though Danny now refuses to move into the smaller room, so Spence moves into the room with Danny and a classic standoff begins.
