Aisha Tyler To Host Reboot Of ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ For CW

Aisha Tyler To Host Reboot Of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' For CW

Comedian Aisha Tyler, who currently appears as a regular on CBS’ afternoon show The Talk, aside from her guest starring work on other shows such as Glee and Archer, has been tapped to be the host of a new version of comedy show Whose Line is it Anyway? for the CW Network which will run as summer series.

Many of you will remember the original incarnation of the show, which made regular Wayne Brady a star,  when it ran on ABC from 1998-2004 hosted by Drew Carey.

The premise will still be the same in which a team of comedians go through a series of improv games using ideas from the audience and host creating different characters and scenes. At the end of each show a winner will be announced for the most creative and funniest improvisation.

No premiere date as yet has been set, but no doubt one will be announced soon.

great to see the show is back. Why is the host giving us the finger in this picture?


Uh no. The version with Drew Carey was not the original version. The original was hosted by Clive Anderson and based in the UK. Wayne Brady was on both, but my point is that the UK version is the first, it's brilliant and it debuted ten years before the American reboot.

Yay! Looking forward to the talent tapped for this. I used to love Wayne Brady n dem!

I like this news. After having seen a rerun of the original last year and being reminded how what great fun it was, I wondered what brainiacs had canceled it. If this materializes, then it could be great.
