A sitcom about Drew's personal and professional life.
Those who were credited in the starring credits at the beginning of the episode were usually featured in every episode (except for Craig Ferguson, who was usually absent for few). However, in season eight, the only cast members to appear in every episode are Drew Carey (Drew), Cynthia Watros (Kelly), and Diedrich Bader (Oswald). The others were all absent for at least one episode. Despite being credited for every episode, Craig Ferguson (Nigel) and John Carroll Lynch (Steve) were only in four and eight episodes, respectively.
How long was I out for?
Lewis Kiniski: A long time, Drew. It's 2137. I'm the great-grandson of Lewis Kiniski, the first human emperor. Unfortunately, you are my slave.
Drew Carey: Kate, how long was I really out for?
Lewis Kiniski: Silence, slave!
During the opening credits of certain episodes of the 8th and 9th seasons, the character's name are shown with the pictures of the actors who portray them.
The episode "Two Drews and the Queen of Poland Walk Into a Bar" was deemed offensive to Polish people due to its storyline where Mimi prepares to meet the king of Poland. The syndicated version of this episode cuts Mimi's storyline entirely and reuses an intro from an older episode to fit the time missing.
