2 episodes every Wednesday at 9pm and 9:30pm

Turkeyspotting
Spoiler:
In the 200th episode, Drew decides to go on a crash diet and give up food cold turkey when matchmaker Larry Almada (Ian Gomez) tells him he's too out-of-shape to fit in at an upcoming singles mixer. But the results aren't quite what Drew had in mind especially when he starts to hallucinate. Denise Faye (Annie in the Academy-Award nominated film Chicago) also guest stars.

Suddenly, No Summer
Spoiler:

Drew takes a summer course in computers, taught by his boss, in an attempt to move up at work, but the gang has other plans and tempts him to play hookey with a trip to Florida. But when he finally gives in and goes along on the trip, he soon realizes he just should have just stayed home.

god, I didn't think it was still on the air. I saw 2 new episodes back to back probably 2 years ago and could not laugh once. I thought it was dead. Least the early episodes are still good.

Yeah, this was a show that was good in the early days, and had potential to be great, but just went the opposite direction, imho.

Musical numbers, too much Mimi, transvestite brother, too many gimmicks; a lot of the episodes just make me cringe (literally).

So who is the new chick on the show? I know that Kate was married off a while ago, but how did the new chick come into play, and what is her relationship with the guys? As you can tell, I haven't watched this in a while...

The gimmicks and overboard silliness killed this show. Sure, the show always had an irreverent tone, but they pushed too hard with stuff liek Drew dying and being reborn as Mimi's baby, or being locked away in a mental institution. And the one season opener.. the Rock and Roll Comedy Hour or something to that effect... was inexcusable.

Plus they'd repeatedly put Drew with chicks so far out of his league it wasn't funny. That got old after a while.

Cynthia Watros. Formerly of FOX's Titus. Unfortunately, this show's probably gonna die a slow, unceremonious death as part of the mid-season/summer T.V. fare.

I thought that he looked familiar. So how did she come to join the gang? How was her character introduced?

Wasn't Erin introduced as one of the waitresses at their normal bar/haunt?

I loved the dancing turkey strippers and their pole work.

Wow, 200 episodes! I too thought this show was long cancelled. I watched early on, but gave up on it years ago.

Honk!
