Those who were credited in the Starring credits at the beginning of the episode were usually featured in every episode (except for Craig Ferguson, who was usually absent for few). However, in Season 8 the only cast members to appear in every episode are Drew Carey, Cynthia Watros and Diedrich Bader. The others were all absent for at least one episode. Despite being credited for every episode, Craig Ferguson and John Carroll Lynch were only in 4 and 8 episodes, respectively.

Due to poor ratings, the show was taken off of ABC's schedule for the 2003-2004 season. The show's contract with the network, however, required ABC to produce a ninth season, broadcast between 2 June 2004 and 8 September 2004. In order to fit a 26-episode season in three months, many weeks featured two half-hour episodes run back-to-back.

What Happened To Steve Carey?
Like the two aforementioned characters that left in Season 8, John Carroll Lynch was written out by divorcing Mimi and moving away. He made one return after his tenure as main credit status ended.
What happened to Craig Ferguson (Mr. Wick)?
According to Craig Ferguson, despite having great friendships with all the cast/crew, he grew really tired of doing the show as he was not able to professionally develop. his disappearance in the final season was the result of him writing and directing the film "I'll Be There". In his book, Craig Ferguson noted "I was being used less and less. Sometimes they would just pay me to stay home and not do anything else, which sounds fantastic but it doesn't do much for your ego."
What happened to Kate?
Christa Miller decided to leave the show to take a recurring role on her husband's new show Scrubs. Her character was written out by falling in love with an Air Force officer during the course of a week and then getting married and moving to Guam where he was stationed.
