Because of the shows being filmed in advance, the April Fool's Day contest winners would be announced by having Drew open his mouth and the winner's name being dubbed in. In syndication, there is now a voice-over done by Drew saying, "This is an obsolete message." See more »
[Drew and Oswald accidentally spray Lewis with a liquid that attracts eagles, and run inside]
Open the door! Open the door, for god's sake!
[the eagle doesn't show up]
What, I'm not good enough for ya?
If the eagle didn't show, then what does it attract?
[Lewis is suddenly attacked by a pack of squirrels]
Help! Help! Let me in!
You know, I'd run for cover, if I were you.
Because eagles eat squirrels.

The Drew Carey Show might not be original in its premise, but it's more original than other shows out there (cough, cough, can you say Bette? or The King Of Queens?). This show is about Drew, an overweight man with thick glasses who works in a department store. He is constantly followed by his best friends: Kate (Christa Miller), Oswald (Driedrich Bader) and Lewis (the hilarious Ryan Stiles). Drew is also surrounded by co-workers Mimi Bobeck (Kathy Kinney) and Mr. Wick (Craig Ferguson) all of whom try to make his life miserable. The actors are good. Drew Carey is pretty good as well as Miller. Ryan Stiles is a hoot as the bizarre Lewis and Bader, even with his considerably cliche character, makes the best out of it. Kathy Kinney is funny when what she says isn't "Bite me, Doughboy" and "Shut up, Pig!". The writing is also very good. Carey isn't afraid of taking potshots at himself, and the show considerably pushes the envelope. Take this, for example: Drew enters the house."Where's Oswald?" he asks Lewis. Out of a closed door: "I'm waxing my bike!" says Oswald. (In that episode, Oswald's father had given him a bike.) Drew, with a smirk:"Is that what you guys are calling now?" Then he sees the bike. "Wait a minute. His bike is here." Says Lewis, "Well then, I guess he's masturbating." Won't be seeing that on Suddenly Susan! (Well, I won't be, anyway.) I have a suspicion that if the F-word (which I would gladly say, mind you, if I didn't have the risk of being censored) is ever allowed on network TV, this show will be the breakthrough. Also, ever once in a while, instead of pumping us with moralistic sap, they have an original show, like one full of bloopers or one supposedly "Live". A good show, especially in its time slot.
