Veteran TV writer and producer Rob Long splits his time between Los Angeles and Manhattan. Or he did, until he got a call asking him to step in and run the CBS sitcom Kevin Can Wait. Since star Kevin James had the clout to insist on filming near his home in Bethpage, New York, that meant commuting by train to Long Island in dead winter. Long talks about how you fix a sitcom and what it's like to be a conservative in the industry.
