ABC screwed up with that show. Don't give a show a huge extension, even if it is a big hit, because it's bound to hit a wall. It stopped being good about a year after it got its huge extension

I thought the Drew Carey show was good at the beginning, but it got very gimmicky, and very old. The live, improv shows were good, but the out there plots (Shirley Jones and Drew an item, Drew's brother with Mimi, promotions/firings every week) just killed the show.

I love Whose Line is it Anyway, but I prefer the British version (perhaps cause it was what I first watched on Comedy Central). And, unlike the rest of the world, I can't stand Wayne Brady.

I've watched Drew Carey since the beginning, but when Kate left, that's when the show REALLY jumped the shark, IMO. The only reason ABC is airing these episodes is because there are so many already in the can, not really because they want to.

As for "Whose Line", I absolutely loved it when it first aired on ABC (the American version), and was/is one of the few shows I thought was howlingly funny. Then they started putting it on all different times and nights and I kinda lost track of it. I've tried to watch the British version on Comedy Central, but I can't dig it (even though it has Franklin Delano Romanowski from Seinfeld on there :))

So many things killed this show for me. Drew and Wick getting married, Kate leaving the show, the pointless musical numbers. The first one was decent ("Up every mornin' just to keep a job..."), and "Cleveland Rocks" is the song that'll pretty much be linked to the show forever; but the rest was just overkill.

The 'Wick as boss of Winfred/Louder' era was probably the best. Once they went through the revolving store managers (Mark Curry, rich british guy, 19 year old blond chick), the show was slowly on its way down.

The reason the show started to suck is because sooner or later you had to come to the realization that you were spending 30 precious minutes of life with Drew Carey, who is basically Jerry Seinfeld without any of the good stuff.

Drew Carey was good when it was about an average Cleveland guy who worked at a dead-end job. When the writers realized this and tried to jazz it up, THAT'S when it started to suck and blow at the same time.

Don't get too attached to it coming back, they're just running through the eps they have, and will be ending the show. They really gave the show a shaft IMO, and it just lost its chemistry after a while. If you need another reason why ABC blows...look no farther.

Drew Carey Gets His Last Laughs, courtesy of zap2it.com. Just a little about this summer's final run and, actually, a few spoilers I believe.

That kinda reminds me of what happened to Roseanne on there last two seasons or so. They became millionares, and half of the family was gay and the other half was pregnant. It was like Drew Carey. This was a show about a blue collar family that tried to eek out a living and were wisecracking. It then turned into the Lanford Hillbillys that last season. I skipped out of the first run and just saw the last season on nick-at-night a few weeks ago.

At the end of run for most shows, it can get kinda ridiculous...I remember some guy reminiscing on another board about the end of Boy Meets World when they were in college...at the end of that show they turned Cory's brother Eric from a generic dumbass to a borderline schizo...one of the funniest things I have ever seen on TV was the episode when Eric would tell everyone they were fat so he could eat their food

my guess is that Mimi and Drew fall in love before the end of show... or Kate comes back somehow and Kate and Drew finally get married.

The show's producers either planned that or moved to counter the backlash, as the series finale revealed that the majority of the last 2 seasons was ALL A DREAM.

Actually, everything was part of Roseanne's novel after the show where they made the basement her office. That was like in season two or three.

Not to totally beat a dead horse, but I believe it went like this:

Becky was Darlene, so everything that happened to Darlene really happened to Becky. Her sister was gay the whole time (supposedly, hence the man troubles all the time), her mother wasn't gay, though (as she was in the last season of the show).

Everything that happened after Dan woke up in season 8 was totally fictional (lottery, dan's mom, dan cheats, Roseanne's affair with Jim Varney, etc...). He really died after Darlene's (really Becky's) wedding. Everything that happened before that was just a big mixed up version of Roseanne's life.


Most of this is from my remembering and the indespensible http://www.tvtome.com

God, I'm a Roseanne nerd.

Drew Carey was funny the first couple of seasons, and I actually enjoyed watching it. Towards the end however, it began to get really redicilous and I lost track of when it was on, and didn't really care all that much. It was like 90210, I watched that in the beginning, but as that got far fetched from about the third season on, it was saionara to that as well. I may watch these last couple episodes, but not if something good is on the paint-drying channel...
