The Year in Re-Drew: Drew Barrymore Loves Everything So Here Are Some Things She Loves

Drew WeeklyDrew WeeklyHighlighting the very special moments of Drew Barrymore’s very special talk show, served sunny-side up (just like how Drew likes it!)

If our entirely too-close reading The Drew Barrymore has proven anything it’s that its host, Drew Barrymore, is enthusiastic. Sometimes it’s to a frightening degree. In her own words, she loves everything. Her heart is the size of Venus. For our end-of-year review of a show that has brought at least two of us (Drew and me) nonstop joy, below is a supercut of some of the things that Drew proclaimed to love during the first 15 weeks of The Drew Barrymore Show.

As I’ve watched, I’ve collected virtually every example of things Drew Barrymore loves (though I did miss some of the times she told a guest, “I love you,” since those clips would have just been repetitive, but trust that she tells most of them that she loves them). Had I included all of what I collected in the video, it would have run for about 30 minutes. Maybe one day you’ll get my Snyder cut of this. In the meantime, I’ve typed out a relatively comprehensive (though again, not quite complete) of things Drew Barrymore has professed to love on her show. Here you go, happy holidays:
