Drew Carey, now blogging

Drew Carey recently started a blog. He only has a few posts, but I have to say that I'm interested in what he has to say. I especially like his distaste for rabid "fans" who dirty up the Internet with bullshit. Not that I've ever seen anything like that before (rolls eyes).

When he started on The Price is Right, I thought, wow, he's awful, but on a recent episode I saw, he's really settled into the gig and I think he does a nice job. The show is still as classic as ever, and I think it makes for good background noise at least. I don't watch TV during the day, but I've seen it a few times while traveling.

And you know, his initial post about working on the show reminds me that TV's dark art, the thing that really make the medium exciting, is live (or live-on-tape) multi-camera production. It doesn't matter if it's a game show, sports or even the evening news. It's still one of the most interesting forms of video to watch, and it's even more fun to make it. I dig that.

I've always thought he was underrated. His writing on The Drew Carey Show was very sharp, especially in the first few seasons. He always struck me as an intelligent, down-to-earth guy. I've been enjoying his new blog as well.
