This. They tried doing something like Whose Line with most of the same cast, but it was terrible. There's a show on ABC called Give Me Your Life or something like that with some of the same cast that looks interesting. I have it on the DVR, but haven't gotten around to watching it yet.

I was a big fan of Whos Line.  Colin Mochrie was insanely funny almost all of the time.

The US version has made me cry laughing more than any other tv show in existence. My favorite bits were when they'd get audience members to (poorly) do the sound effects for Colin & Ryan as they acted out a scenario. Hysterical.

Give Me Your Life or whatever it's called is ok, but it's missing some magic.  I only got to see a couple bits, though, so I'll still give it some more tries.

Best one was the one with Robin Williams.

And you knew it was a good sketch when Drew was wiping tears away.

I watched the new show tonight with Marc Cuban as guest. It was actually pretty good, nice nostolgia since 3/4 of the cast is from who's line.

Best segment on any TV show EVER. The look of utter mortification when they realize what's going to happen shortly is just priceless.

I truly miss this show too. SO many laughs from it over the years.

They did a reunion show of sorts in Vegas.  It was called Drew Careys Improv A Ganza.  There was about 8 episodes.  Seemed strange to see everyone so much older after all the years and Drew became pretty thin.

Apparently Drew Carey did 40 episodes of a show called ImprovAGanza, on GSN or something of all places. It seems all the episodes are on youtube. It has most to all of the cast that was on Whose Line at some point or another.

God, I loved that show. I liked the British version more, but the US version wasn't too bad. Colin Mochrie got a big boost to his career from that. Now he's on Canadian TV almost everywhere.

The new version of Whose Line starts tonight on the CW at 8 pm (the CW apparently thought it was a good idea to debut the show opposite the MLB All-Star Game  saywhat ).  Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie, and Ryan Stiles return, Aisha Tyler replaces Drew Carey as host, and each week they'll have a celebrity (that I've never heard of) as a guest improv-er.

I absolutely loathe improv comedy because the vast, overwhelming majority of improv acts I've seen are so crappy at it that I just want to go on a tri-state comedy club destruction spree whenever I'm exposed to yet another "SOMEONE YELL OUT A CITY AND A KIND OF CAT!" routine.  I think there's maybe 3 comics on the face of the planet that are any good at it.

...I don't think I'll be watching this revival as I don't see any of those names listed.

Fans of the UK version should check out other British panel comedy shows (QI, Would I Lie To You, etc.). Scratches a similar itch.

They have a different theme each week,and different guests

Yes! I can tell this one will need to get its feet underneath it a bit, but it's got the tools.

Tonight's was actually probably the best one so far! They used the "guest star" just enough not to be annoying, and Keegan-Michael Key was outstanding.

How did that get on television?!  I guess the CW doesn't care anymore.  They know no one is watching that network.

It was certainly a bit gross, but really not that bad until they got to the drill going up through the gums.  I loved Ryan and Heather's reactions.

Yeah, I agree. They've had some pretty completely off the wall and horrifying 'news broadcasts' over the years (and on ABC even).

Also, unlike their other ones of this, the footage stayed on the broadcasters instead of the video footage most of the time. I do think that CW realized that they'd gone a bit too far and wanted to limit things.

I can't tell if you're being funny, but I wish GSN still showed these.  Also, Arlene Francis is awesome.
