Aisha Tyler hosts this skit comedy show where the actors on the show, usually Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles and another guest star or two do different comedy skits. It's all improv and made up on the spot.

Somehow, I missed the first few programs of this show. I am a fan of the old "Whose Line is it Anyway" especially the original British version and was hoping that this would continue that tradition. But "Whose Line" had a spontaneity and intimacy which was achieved by few means besides the wit of the performers.
In adding the green screen technology and a much larger cast, this intimacy was completely destroyed and any wit the performers could bring to the program is lost in the feeble animated "cleverness" which also contradicts any concept of "spontaneity".
What is left is completely boring which the old show rarely was. (ok, maybe later on.) And a desire to see how the cast aged. That having been satisfied, there is nothing else.
It would be a kindness to perform euthanasia on this program and the sooner the better.
(added:7/05.08:) And so they did, not to my surprise!
