The series finale's ending is a remake of the pilot's ending, but with a small twist. In the pilot, Kate, Oswald, and Lewis watch Drew from his kitchen window as he plays pool, and in the finale, it's Lewis, Oswald, Mr. Wick, Mimi, Kellie, and Drew, Jr., who are watching Drew. Both endings include Drew playing pool outside in the rain, in his yellow rain jacket, humming "Moon Over Parma". See more »

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.
