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.
Oswald Lee Harvey:
Whoof! Where have you been? You smell like garbage and gunpowder!
Drew Carey: I was at the dump with Mimi.
Lewis Kiniski: You fool, you can't bury her there! That's the first place they'll look!
In the eighth season the theme song was performed with a different musical style before each episode.
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.
