Trivia

The show was cancelled by ABC in summer 2003 due to declining ratings. ABC aired remaining unaired episodes during the summer of 2004. Reruns aired on ABC Family beginning in 2002. These reruns were so popular that the producers cobbled together "new" episodes out of unused footage from the tapings. These episodes premiered on ABC Family in 2005. See more »

this is the funniest TV show ever
24 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

I watch Whose Line Is It Anyway? every night at 10 and it is fantastic and original. I don't care if they show the same episodes all the time, they just never get old. This is one of my favorite game shows, mainly because it's improvising and it's actually funny. As I hope everyone does, I have a list of my favorite games on this show like: News Flash, Let's Make a Date, Hoe Down, Weird Newscasters, Hollywood Directors, Scenes From a Hat, and many others. Trust me, this show is a real treat that will keep you laughing the entire half-an-hour you're watching it. Personally, my favorite actor on that show is Ryan Stiles, and I give the show 1,000 points. 10/10* This is TV's best show!
