After it ended its run on ABC and what was then ABC Family, The CW revived Whose Line Is it Anyway?, with Aisha Tyler hosting the comedy improv series. Considering its age and the fact that it airs on the smallest network, which moved it several times in seasons 11 and 12, its declining ratings make sense. Will Whose Line Is it Anyway? be cancelled or renewed for season 14? Stay tuned.
The Whose Line Is it Anyway? TV show features Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady, and Colin Mochrie improvising, along with a guest comedian in each episode. The cast tests their comedic acumen by participating in improvisational games. At the end of each round, Tyler awards points for their work, and the points don’t count. Frequent guests include Brad Sherwood and Greg Proops.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Whose Line Is It Anyway? TV series? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a 14th season?
If you wouldn’t keep moving it around, hiding it, & pitting it against sensationalism tv (the return of Will & Grace? Really?), and gave the show a nice, cushy time slot where it can be appreciated by humor-loving adults (9pm Eastern/ 8pm Central on Monday or Wednesday, for example…), then maybe your audience will have the opportunity to develop a habit of tuning in regularly. This show is too brilliant to just be cast by the wayside!
My family and I used to watch it way back when. It was s family favorite. I started watching it lately and I love the regulars and guests and host but it has become extremely sexual and raunchy. Very disappointed. I don’t think I will continue.
Please renew, it is the freshest show on Tv for all seasons. Where else can you find such comedic geniuses.
After all this time, Whose Line, and specifically Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady, continue to be the funniest, freshest, friskiest show on television. Aisha Tyler is like your younger brother’s girlfriend who just wants to hang out in the basement with you playing COD instead of going to the mall with him.
