Other regular castmembers include Conchata Ferrell, Holland Taylor, and Marin Hinkle. Recurring are Angus T. Jones, Melanie Lynskey, April Bowlby, Ryan Stiles, and Amber Tamblyn.

The party that marked the halfway point of CBS, Showtime, and The CW’s time at the Television Critics Association summer press tour provided a fitting look at the changing face of the third of those networks: The stars of Reign sharing a lounge area with Whose Line Is It Anyway? veterans Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie, all parties involved looking on in wonder (and providing running commentary) as disparate ingredients and volatile chemicals combined on a caterer’s cart to create fresh ice cream. It was weird. It seemed vaguely unseemly. But following the summer success of The CW »

Accola was a great sport, dancing with Wayne Brady during his song styles game, where he sang to her, "You're the kind of amiga that I've been looking for./ I come and find you behind your crypt door./ And then you see I knock, you know I am your kind. Why don't you turn around so I can stake you from behind," putting even the other cast members and host Aisha Tyler in stitches.
Later, they played Worst Dating Video, which is a favorite game of ours. Highlights include:
Colin pretending he's a hand puppet, "I find you very attractive and if you don't mind a guy with another guy ... up his a**."I don't know if it turns you on, »

TV show description:

After three losing years, the American League beat the National League 3-0 last night in the Mlb All-Star Game (2.9/9). That wasn’t the only win as the Yankees’ Mariano Rivera pitched a perfect 8th inning in the game too and Fox took the night among adults 18-49 and total viewers with 10.28 million watching the game in primetime. As is typical for such live sporting events, expect an adjustment in the numbers later today but as it stands right now last night’s All-Star Game is even with fast nationals from last year’s match-up.

The best thing about the new Whose Line: It’s just like the old Whose Line.
Sure, the set looks a little snazzier, a few new games have been thrown into the mix, and Drew Carey has morphed into Aisha Tyler. But the heart of the show is still what it always was — sharp, fast-paced short-form improv performed by a team of veterans who know each others’ rhythms inside and out. The only real difference is that Colin Mochrie’s few remaining hairs have changed from blondish-brown to snowy white.

‘Whose Line Is It Anyway?’ Returns To The CW — Improv Show Premieres July 17
Based on the preview below, the show looks funnier than ever!

The improv game show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" began as a radio show in the U.K., then moved to British television in 1988. After that, in 1998, it was adapted for American television and ran eight seasons on ABC with host Drew Carey.
Proving that you can't keep a good skit down, the show comes back to life on Tuesday, July 16, in a (sort of) new iteration on The CW.
"Whose Line" veterans Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie and Wayne Brady are back, paired with new host Aisha Tyler and weekly guest stars. Various games, with ideas supplied by the audience, test the performers' skills. Tyler then assigns points to each performer, and someone "wins" each week.
Despite the show's long history, it seems to be picking up new fans.
Mochrie tells Zap2it, "We've all been touring in various incarnations around the country. Brad Sherwood and I have been doing tours for the last 10 years. »
Whose Line Is It Anyway? — which introduced a generation to both improvisational comedy and Ryan Stiles’ blue shoes — had an extraordinarily long life, as entertainment franchises go. It began as a British radio program (sorry, programme) in 1988, quickly morphed into a TV series that lasted 10 years, then hopped the pond for an eight-season run on ABC and ABC Family. The series’ last new episode aired just six years ago.
But in an age when nostalgia can be fairly instantaneous — note the tale of Les Misérables, which ran from 1987 to 2003 on Broadway, then was revived from 2006-2008, and will be revived »

How should Glee handle the death of star Cory Monteith? Vulture argues the show should turn the tragedy into an examination of grief. The kids of Glee have dealth with death before, but when you’re young, losing someone your age is a very different shock to take.
In an interview with Whodunnit producer Anthony E. Zuiker, Zuiker explains some behind-the-scenes details like why the exams that determines who gets eliminated aren’t shown on the show, why we’re now seeing an interview with the eliminated “corpse” and whether all the personal drama and hoarding of information was planned.

Matthew Perry is practically synonymous with Chandler Bing, but the "Friends" star's career could have gone in an entirely different direction.
During The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy roundtable of comedy actors, Perry opened up about an ABC pilot titled "Lax 2194" that he filmed with Ryan Stiles and Kelly Hu in 1994, the same pilot season he shot "Friends."
"I did a pilot about a guy who was in charge of separating aliens' luggage at the La airport in the year 2194," Perry said when asked about a job he wishes he could erase from his resume (37:32 in the video above). "I did that the same pilot season as 'Friends' -- 'Lax 2194' ... I wore a futuristic shirt, and the aliens were little people wearing wigs."
When THR reporter Stacey Wilson noted that "the world would be a different place" had that pilot been picked up over "Friends," Perry joked, "I certainly wouldn't be sitting here. »
