A free spirited yoga instructor finds true love in a conservative lawyer and they got married on the first date. Though they are polar opposites; her need of stability is fulfilled with him, his need of optimism is fulfilled with her.
Drew is an assistant director of personnel in a Cleveland department store and he has been stuck there for ten years. Other than fighting with co-worker Mimi, his hobbies include drinking beer and not being able to get dates. To make a few extra bucks he has a micro-brewery going in his garage with his buddies.Written by

Due to poor ratings, the show was taken off of ABC's schedule for the 2003-2004 season. The show's contract with the network, however, required ABC to produce a ninth season, broadcast between June 2, 2004 and September 8, 2004. In order to fit a twenty-six-episode season in three months, many weeks featured two half-hour episodes run back-to-back. See more »

Oh, I get it. You only want the bad boys to plant the seed. But, come the harvest, all the ladies want reliable old farmer Drew.

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. See more »
I don't usually like shows starring stand-up comics. They end a great comics career and usually aren't acted that well. Drew Carey is different. Every part is played pitch perfect and it has good, plausible storylines.
The show went downhill after Kate and Oswald broke up, but that happens with all shows. The Mimi/Steve pairing was well-played and emotionally fulfilling. I'm not much of a fan of Drew/Kate and the show would have been better without it. Wick is the strongest character, albeit cartoonish. But the whole show is.
My favorite episode would be when they attempted to win an Emmy. It was the epitome of the show-goofy.
