Whose Line Is It Anyway? (US)

Improv veterans Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie return for a new take on the comedy series with host, Aisha Tyler. Each episode, a special guest star joins the comics as they tackle a series of spontaneous improvised sketches, with only a few random ideas from the studio audience and their host. With little information and a lot of imagination, the comics depict a variety of characters and scenes, and even perform songs. At the end of each round, Aisha awards points to each of the four performers and announces a winner at the end of every episode.

First episode date: August 5, 1998
Creators: Mark Leveson, Dan Patterson
Stars: Drew Carey, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles
Genre: Comedy, Game-Show
Networks: The CW

Hosted by comedian Aisha Tyler, “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” will also feature the return of cast members 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. Based on the wildly successful U.K. format, which also spawned a previous incarnation in the US that ran for eight seasons on ABC.
