Good News: 5 years after ending its run in the U.S., living on through clips on YouTube and fond memories, ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’ will be brought back to television life!
Bad News: It’ll be on the CW network (?!?). Which is very femme-and-youth-skewing. Though with successes such as Arrow and Supernatural and decline in programs such as 90210, Emily Owens M.D., Beauty & the Beast, The Carrie Diaries, etc, it may be trying to move a bit beyond its young female demographic. Although it still worries me that they’ll try and tinker with the show to make it more in line with their demographic (“This week’s episode of WLIIA? will feature the stars of The Vampire Diaries!” shudder).
Good News: Aisha Tyler, voice of Lana Kane on Archer and, from the interviews I’ve seen of her, a generally funny person will be hosting. This gives me more confidence. Also the old cast will be back (Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady).
