The popular ABC series that lasted eight whole seasons is set to return to the CW network. Now in reruns, usually on ABC family, the show featured four comedians and a host who would dish out quick skits and take theme suggestions from the audience. The show was hosted by Drew Carey, who was coming off his success of the Drew Carey Show, won't be returning for the new version. Most likely busy, and financially satisfied, with The Price is Right. Instead Aisha Tyler, former host of Talk Soup and current co-host on View ripoff The Talk, is set to host and she certainly has comedian chops for it. Set to return are Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady, and Colin Mochrie who are from the original cast and really the comedy glue that held the show together. Also, just like the original, the show will feature a fourth guest who will rotate and hopefully will feature more celebrity guests who were sometimes a rarity on the first run.
Is this a good idea? Are we ready for an aged version of the show? And should it really be more of the same or should we be getting some newer comedians to ride in and see how they do? And more importantly should this be more raunchy? The original UK version of Whose Line was much more adult and crass sometimes and if you've never looked up uncensored scenes from the American version on youtube, you should do so. Personally I'd like to see some new talent on the show more often since the original helped make guys like Wayne Brady a household name.
