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. 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.
