"THE DREW CAREY SHOW" � (6:00-6:30 p.m. ET)
"Boy Party/Girl Party" (TV-PG, D)
A snowstorm causes problems with Drew's pajama-party plans � Drew (Drew Carey), Lewis (Ryan Stiles) and Oswald (Diedrich Bader) continue to date Tracy (recurring guest star Diane Farr) alternately, each hoping to become her favorite. When Drew meets a lonely catalogue model at the store, he invites her and her gorgeous friends to a pajama party at his house. Drew entices Lewis and Oswald into coming to the party. With Tracy free that night, he intends to sneak out of his house for a date with her. Unfortunately, a huge snowstorm prevents the models from getting to Drew's home. Drew keeps this a secret from Lewis, Oswald, Ed (recurring guest star Joe Walsh) and the dozens of eager, restless guys waiting for the women to arrive. Lewis and Oswald figure out Drew's plan when Drew gets his car stuck in a snow bank while trying to leave to meet Tracy. Under the pretense of teaching Drew how to dance, they beat him up. Meanwhile, Mimi (Kathy Kinney) hosts a "Women in Business" seminar in her house but actually intends to promote her cosmetics business to the assembled guests, including Kate (Christa Miller), Sharon (Jenica Bergere), Mrs. Louder (recurring guest star Nan Martin), cross-dressing Steve (recurring guest star John Carroll Lynch) and Mimi's strange younger sister, Gigi (recurring guest star Lynn Wanlass). Because of the snowstorm, everyone stays at Mimi's house for the night, during which Kate persuades Mrs. Louder to rehire her. Written by Jennifer Crittenden & Terry Mulroy and directed by Sam Simon (#467517).
