  • Whose Line is it Anyways returns July 16th

    6 & 6:30 PM on WGN & WPIX, 9 & 9:30 PM on KTLA. It's Aisha Tyler hosting instead of Drew Carey but Colin Mochrie, Ryan Styles and Wayne Brady are back. I'm hoping that it's as good as its run with Carey.

    ^ What really did Drew Carey even do on that show most of the time?

    Looking forward to watching this again.

      Only the British version counts.

        The British version was a chore to watch. Clive Anderson treated the show as a typical BBC panel program. At best the audience gave a "Ah, yes. Well played, sir." Drew Carey let Colin, Ryan and Wayne loose and made the show entertaining. Lots of ROFLMAO moments. Too bad the Comedy channel never showed the U.S. show in reruns.

          The British television version lasted for a total of 10 series, with 136 episodes, all of which were hosted by Clive Anderson.[2] The ending came when ratings were beginning to slump, which critics believe Mochrie and Stiles' permanent fixtures were a factor of.
          Seems the more sophisticated British comedy audience outgrew the Canadian's somewhat slapstick contribution to the show....Can't believe they're still flogging this poor old nag.

            The problem with the UK version was they were using stage actors and comics instead of improv talent. They had a poor ability to take a situation and quickly react to it, and the other actors/comics, that bring any humour, which I believe the show was supposed to be about. Unfortunately, as well, the points mattered, very much. It was painful to watch, especially the frequent bouts of dead silence.

            That version finished off with tapings in Los Angeles, which may have been because the British audience thought the show was a challenge rather than humour. Or it may have just been because they flat out became bored.

            The main reasons why the second version went off the air, after 215 episodes and 5 compilation episodes of bits that didn't make the cut the first time, were because WLIIA was going up against Survivor and then because of a decision by an ABC executive to cancel it for "low ratings".
