The Drew Carey Show
In THE DREW CAREY SHOW, comedian Drew Carey plays a character of the same name who wades through his mid-life years in Cleveland in the company of three longtime friends. Forty-ish Drew is a lovable loser who is single (and unlucky in love), works at the same department store desk job he's had for 10 years, and hangs out with the same friends he's had since childhood. Drew's friends lead similar lives: Kate (Christa Miller of Scrubs) dates -- and sleeps around -- a lot but rarely gets serious, and Oswald (Diedrich Bader of Napoleon Dynamite) and Lewis (Ryan Stiles of Whose Line Is It Anyway?) are a dorky duo most notable for their off-the-wall observations on life. Work brings Drew face-to-face with his obnoxious boss, Mr. Wick (Craig Ferguson), and his nemesis, Mimi (Kathy Kinney), a flamboyant, overweight woman who torments Drew with pranks and put-downs. He holds his own in their battles, though, and their exchanges, while often crass, make for constant laughs.
