Drew Carey Show?

I started watching Drew Carey in reruns and they are not playing them in squence. What happened to Christa Miller's character on the show and what happened to the department store job that Drew Carey had?

Christa Miller left the show b/c her husband produces Scrubs. I think she had a bit part on that show. IIRC, she got married and moved away.

As for the department store, let's see, it got sold to the English people. Then, somehow (I don't remember exactly) it ended up closing down and drew got a job at a DotCom that took over the building.

Wow, that sounds terrible. Sounds like it really went down the crapper. I abandoned it after a few years.

Drew Carey was still on during Scrubs first season? Christa Miller's part on there was small early on, but now is basically a regular.

Wasn't the store also owned by the Dutch and Japanese? And at one point wasn't Drew an executive or on the board of the store?

There was alot of things happening on the show. It got moved around and yanked so many times, it was hard to follow. I actually thought it was still pretty good towards the end.

They were on concurrently for two/three seasons (Scrubs debuted in 2001 while Carey ended 9/04). Bill Lawrence said that in season 1 Christa basically told him when she wanted to be on the show and they'd write Jordan in. However, it appears that she is now a much more regular character with the Dr. Cox's baby in the picture.

I loved this show, and sadly never saw the last season due to the shuffling it got. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Drew_Carey_Show

The last season:

Spoiler:
Drew's last season felt very different from the rest of the show. ABC left the cast and crew alone as they made the season, since it seemed they never intended to show it. The directors started experimenting with one-camera set-ups, showing that the sets were completely built, there actually were fourth walls in most rooms, and the rooms were actually linked together. The writers were equally brazen, as they had Gus burn down Mimi's house, forcing her to move in with Drew. Drew and Mimi's mutual hatred of each other finally vanished and they became true friends.

The season ended with Drew getting Wick's help to open up a department store, using the vacated building that Neverending Store left behind. However, Drew is quickly kicked out of his job as store manager by Wick, who has been given his job by the project's sole investor: his father-in-law. Mimi is also relieved of her vice-presidency and made Mr. Wick's assistant, Drew becomes the assistant director of personnel. Drew goes and sits at his desk, the surroundings are now the same as the Winfred Louder set that hadn't been seen for two years, and Barry Manilow's "Looks Like We Made It" starts up.

The actual final episode follows as Drew and Kellie's first child is born, scant moments after the two are married. The final scene is Drew playing pool on his backyard pool table in the rain; the same scene that ended the first episode. He looks up at the camera and thanks the audience, saying it has been fun. The series ends with a montage set to "You Can Still Rock in America".
