King Of Queens Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

Doug (Kevin James) and Carrie Heffernan (Leah Remini) were happy. Doug had just gotten the perfect basement with a large TV and foosball table. However, Carrie's father, Arthur Spooner (Jerry Stiller), accidentally burns his own house down with his "lucky" hot plate after his wife died; Arthur and Carrie's sister, Sara (Lisa Rieffel), have to move in with Doug and Carrie. As a result, Doug loses his basement to his eccentric father-in-law. During this time, Doug finds living in his house frustrating after both Arthur and Sara make him late for work.
