It’s hard to believe that this improv series has been around for more than 350 episodes. Still, this CW show keeps chugging along and doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Still, nothing lasts forever. Will Whose Line Is It Anyway? be cancelled or renewed for season 18? Stay tuned.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? is hosted by Aisha Tyler and each episode typically features Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie, and a guest performer. The foursome tests their comedic reflexes by participating in a series of spontaneous improv games. After each round, Aisha will dole out points to the performers and declare a winner at the end of every episode (not that the points matter). Guests in season 17 (the ninth on The CW) include Jeff Davis, Jonathan Mangum, and Gary Anthony Williams.
