PostWhose Line Is It Anyway? RETURNS!
by Alvin Flummux » Sat Mar 02, 2013 2:14 am

Drew may be gone, but Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Wayne Brady return to the improv scene with new episodes!

"Whose Line Is It Anyway?'s" Colin Mochrie just made a lot of fans of the show very happy, announcing on Twitter that the improv show is coming back. You can check out his Tweet here:
https://twitter.com/colinmochrie/status/307490163267862528
 
The show started as a British radio program before moving to television in 1988 as a series on UK's Channel 4. Following the British run in 1998, ABC began airing an American version, hosted by Drew Carey, which lasted another eight seasons.
 
Talking to The Wenatchee World, Ryan Stiles revealed that he will also return to Los Angeles in April for a new season. Comedian Aisha Tyler will host this time around.
 
UPDATE: Here's the press release from The CW about the return of the improv show!
 
The CW is going for laughs this summer by ordering a new take on the hit improvisational comedy series, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?, hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler ("The Talk"), it was announced today by Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. Premiere information will be announced at a later time.
 
The CW's WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? features the return of Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie, who along with a special guest each episode, must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games. Prompted only by random ideas supplied by the studio audience and host Aisha Tyler, our four performers must use the little information they have and their wild imaginations to depict different characters and an array of scenes, as well as perform songs. After each round of improvisation, Aisha will dole out points to our four performers and declare a winner at the end of every episode.
 
Based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is executive produced by Dan Patterson, Mark Leveson, Jimmy Mulville, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady. Co-created by Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is from Angst Productions and Hat Trick Productions.

Oh hell yeah!

Fantastic to hear that Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie will be involved, wouldn't be the same without them :wub:
Aisha Tyler for host is a slightly odd choice, but I suppose we'll see how it goes.

Hope it has the theme tune from the UK version


:wub:


I tended to like the late Clive Anderson era better (the episodes where Colin and Ryan were in every episode rather than the very early ones), though Drew did at least get more involved with the games himself.

As much as I like WLIIA?, I've always had a suspicion that some of the stuff was scripted.

Still funny though.

No it isn't. The US one had too many singing segments that have to be just fast forwarded through because they're painful to watch.
Clive Anderson was also a better host than Drew Carey.

My one worry with this new one is that, with Wayne Brady as a permanent fixture, there'll be one of those god awful singing games in every show where he sings a song about an audience member :dread:

Colin and Ryan are what made the show for me. They've got such chemistry when acting together...

Aw man, I wish they'd do a new UK version as well. I grew up with this show, watched it every week. My favourite era was when Paul Merton / Tony Slattery / Ryan Styles / Josie Lawrence / Mike McShane were in heavy rotation.

Nobody will ever top Caroline Quentin's "dripping" comment.
