UPDATE MARCH 1, 4:11 EST: The CW has just released a statement saying that the show is officially back! However, host Drew Carey will be replaced by Aisha Tyler, one of the coolest geek ladies out there. The premiere date is yet to be announced. Here is what the release says about the show:
“The CW’s Who’s 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.”
I watched the heck out of Who’s Line Is It Anyway?, the improv show starring Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady and Ryan Styles and hosted by Drew Carey. Brady’s improv songs alone were worth the watch.
Oh, by the way, Whose Line is coming back. More details later.
