Who Does 'Time Warp' Better: Drew Carey or the Cast of 'Glee?'

by Rich Keller, posted Oct 22nd 2010 4:30PM
Before the 'Glee' cast did the 'Time Warp,' Drew Carey and his friends took a stab at the dance number.Earlier this week, 'Glee' fans were happy to watch a "leaked" video featuring the full rendition of 'Time Warp' that the cast will perform on Tuesday's episode saluting 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show.'

Some may think this is the first time the classic rock number has been performed by a television show cast outside of the original 1975 film ... and they would be wrong.

In fact, while many of the 'Glee' stars were still in grade school, Drew Carey was doing the 'Time Warp' on his own show -- complete with elaborate costumes and choreographed dance routines.

Craig Ferguson Is Amazed by Drew Carey's 80 Pound Weight Loss (VIDEO)

Craig Ferguson Is Amazed by Drew Carey's 80 Pound Weight LossDrew Carey looks really different these days. Carey once topped the scales at 262 lbs, and worried that he could no longer find pants that would fit him. Those days are gone, now that the shrinking comedian has dropped more than 80 pounds.

On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET), Craig Ferguson cracked some jokes about his newly thin friend. But he also recalled a near-death moment that put Drew in the hospital. Ferguson was joined by actor Diedrich Bader: the two men appeared together on 'The Drew Carey Show.'

Bader reminded Craig of an incident from nine years ago. After rehearsing a dance number for the show, Diedrich went to Carey's dressing room. But when he knocked, he heard a loud noise -- a noise that went like this: "UnnnUNNNHH!" Ferguson recalled this too -- he laughed, remembering how he thought that the sound came from Carey messing around with a female extra.

Price is RightIt's a 'Drew Carey Show' reunion!

After a series of bizarre occurrences, Drew Carey found out who was behind the dastardly doings -- Mimi Bobeck. Yes, that's right America, Mimi is back. Kathy Kinney appeared in character on 'The Price is Right' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) to prank Carey on this glorious April 1. As the show's executive producer, Mimi instituted new policies, hired a new announcer and new models and declared she's watching Carey.

Now, when will Oswald and Ryan show up as contestants?

Watch the video after the jump.

The Price is Right has a special guest today (spoiler!)

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 1st 2009 9:05AM
Drew CareyWe've already heard that former host Bob Barker is going to appear on The Price is Right later this month to promote his new autobiography. But there's another guest that's going to pop up on the show, and it happens today: Mimi from The Drew Carey Show!

Well, to be accurate, Kathy Kinney will appear on her former co-star Drew Carey's CBS game show today as part of the April Fool's Day festivities.

I remember a great April Fool's day Price is Right episode years ago. One of the showcases was their regular "Something For Every Room In The House," but the prizes this day were things like a yo-yo for a game room and a cup for a kitchen. It was pretty funny and really unexpected. Not sure if Drew has anything like that planned for today or if we're just going to see Kinney as Mimi causing havoc on the set.

The CW's new Sunday lineup...complete with pooper scooper

by Richard Keller, posted Nov 26th 2008 10:03AM

The Drew Carey show is one of those shows you'll see on the CW's Sunday lineup.To the programming monkeys over at The CW: Do you really believe that you are an honest-to-goodness competitor in the market right now? Because, if you were, then you would probably be doing something more than just relying on the teen angst shows that populate your weekday schedule.You would probably be trying again to get original programming up and running on the weekends, as well. Particularly on Sunday nights.

Sadly, you're not doing this. In fact, according to the most recent press release you sent out, you're pretty much caving in on Sundays. Instead of giving viewers some new shows to try out, or even reruns (or, as you say, encores) of your more popular programs, from 5-8 pm you're giving us first season episodes of Everybody Hates Chris and The Game, second season episodes of The Drew Carey Show and first season episodes of Jericho. The only people I can see being even remotely happy about this schedule are Jericho fans.

Five TV stars who've exceeded expectations

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 29th 2008 1:24PM
Ty in suedeWhen I look at some of the people who have emerged as today's biggest stars on TV, I scratch my head and wonder, "how did that happen?" There are a few stars who have completely exceeded my expectations -- and I bet yours, too. In fact, after you read my five (no cell phone pun intended), I'm betting that you'll have a few more overachievers to add to the list.

1) Ty Pennington
I'm not ashamed to admit that for a couple of years I was hooking on TLC's Trading Spaces. It may have been the perky Paige Davis, the home improvement on a $1,000, the cool things that the designers did in just 24 hours -- whatever it was, I was a regular viewer. Oh, yes, there was also a carpenter on the show named Ty Pennington.

Craig Ferguson inks deal for memoirs

by Allison Waldman, posted May 8th 2008 3:36PM
Craig Ferguson 1How hot is Craig Ferguson? By my thermometer, he's sizzling. His Late Late Show has risen up to challenge Conan O'Brien in the Nielsens, he was the emcee at the White House Press Correspondents dinner -- riffing on W. right to his face! -- and now the publishing world wants his story. HarperCollins has signed Craig Ferguson to write American on Purpose, the story of his life from small town Scottish boy to big time talk show comic. The book is due to be published in the fall of 2009.

As the title suggests, a big part of the story is Craig's choice to become an American citizen, which he did earlier this year. Craig said he hopes the book "...will inspire other alcoholic punk rock drummers from Scotland to find their true place in U.S. late night television." Well, I say to that, hooray! The talk show host also cracked, "I wanted to get the story down before I get so old I forget it and start believing the crap on Wikipedia."

Drew Carey to marry

by Brad Trechak, posted Oct 12th 2007 3:32PM
Price Is Right Host Drew CareyAccording to this article on CNN, Drew Carey is getting married for the first time. The 49 year old comedian is the current host of The Price Is Right (replacing the immortal Bob Barker; Drew's episodes start Monday) and The Power of 10, as well as a former sit-com star of The Drew Carey Show and host of the American version of Whose Line Is It Anyway?

It warms my heart when I learn that a nerdy-looking guy like Carey can find love later in his life. His wife-to-be, Nicole Jaracz, is a culinary student graduate and doesn't seem to be involved in show business judging by the article. This can only be a good thing.

It's a five o'clock world for Drew Carey -- VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Aug 11th 2007 11:31AM

The cast of The Drew Carey ShowAs I have mentioned in previous posts, Drew Carey is Drew Carey. He exudes that non-pretentious, 'I am who I am' type of personality. It doesn't matter if he's host of a game show like The Price is Right or Power of 10, laughing his butt off on Whose Line is it Anyway?, or starring in his own sitcom.

To prove my point I present to you a scene from The Drew Carey Show. It comes from the first episode of the second season and it features the very first Drew Carey Show music video. Take a look at Drew as he dances to and mouths the words of Five O'Clock World by The Vogues. He is thoroughly enjoying himself. This is the same enjoyment you can see now on Power of 10 when someone reaches the million dollar mark and that you'll probably see when he hosts TPIR.

You can view the video after the jump. By the way, this is the first of three music videos performed during the second season of The Drew Carey Show, and was used for the opening credits to the show before Cleveland Rocks took over a few years later. Both this video and the one for What is Hip are my favorites.

Drew Carey is hip -- VIDEO

by Richard Keller, posted Sep 18th 2006 10:40AM

The Drew Carey Show castGood Monday morning to you! Looks like you had a tough weekend. Let's get you pumped up for the workday, courtesy of Drew Carey and the band Tower of Power.

During the second season of The Drew Carey Show, the star (that would be one Drew Carey) had some fun producing little music videos featuring the show's cast. In the season premiere Drew and his friends lip-synced and danced to Five O'Clock World by The Vogues. At the end of the season they had a dance-off between Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Shake Your Groove Thing by Peaches and Herb. Somewhere in the middle they produced the video for What is Hip from Tower of Power. Out of the three this is my favorite, although the Five O'Clock World video runs a close second.

So, in order to get your blood flowing, go ahead and jump ahead to the video. Look for the cameo appearances from the late Flip Wilson, Dick Clark, and characters from H.R. Puffinstuff and The Banana Splits.
