Drew laments the show's lack of Emmy's but vows no tear-jerking story. Kate is rushed to the hospital and lapses into a coma. Lewis agonizes in single-spotlight soliloquies about his insensitivity. ...
A free-spirited yoga instructor finds true love in a conservative lawyer and they get married on the first date. Though they are polar opposites, he fulfills her need of stability and she fulfills his need of optimism.
Al Bundy is a misanthropic women's shoe salesman with a miserable life. He hates his job, his wife is lazy, his son is dysfunctional (especially with women), and his daughter is dim-witted and promiscuous.
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.

The show used three theme songs throughout its run: season one had "Moon Over Parma", season two used "Five O Clock World", by season three, the show switched to its longest lasting theme song, "Cleveland Rocks", in 2002, during the show's eighth season, the show switched between new versions of all three.

Oswald Lee Harvey:
Every time my dad and I got into an argument we made up over a nice cold beer... I think that's one of the reasons the county took me away from him.

During the Cleveland Rocks intro started in Season 3 when Oswald throws the girl to the side, as if throwing her away, the arm of the catcher can be seen in the left of the screen. 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.
