I don't like the way Aisha Tyler's hair looks in the previews.  She's a smart, funny, and hot chick - but that wavy shag thing has to go.

Oh thank God we have a full 10 hours to get this hashed out before the show starts. I have so much I want to discuss...

I hope its good.  My daughter went to a taping and said it was hilarious, but you never know what will make it to air.  She said a lot of the funniest stuff was Ryan Stiles in between takes, just farking with people.

The episode where Richard Simmons guest-stars on is some of the funniest TV in the last 50 years.  Try to watch the jet-ski scene and not laugh your ass off...

Just an aside - my brother does a ton of improv and has acted with Wayne Brady on more than a couple of occasions.  He's not really fond of the guy because Brady ignores the rules of improv (i.e. playing off of each other) to do his own thing.

He's great on Whose Line though.

A large number of people do get it.  It's a common network near more urban areas.  It sucks that you are not in a region that gets it, but I'd bet more people in my region (the DC Metropolitan Area) will watch it then live within 50 miles of you.

I like the British Whose Line because it seemed genuinely improv.  They didn't know what they were going to get.  It was spontaneous and funny and sometimes bad and awkward.

The few times I watched the Drew Carey one, it all seemed pre-planned and rehearsed.  Everything was fine tuned and smooth and all their songs rhymed perfectly.

I don't know, man.  Something just wasn't right there.....

It's a common network everywhere, though in a lot of places it's a digital subchannel (x.2, x.3) to one of the big 3 networks which I guess maybe dumbass old people might not be able to figure out or something.  There's also a nationwide feed of the DC affiliate on DirecTV.  Wikipedia says the coverage is over 95%.

I attended tapings on several occasions, it's not pre-planned or rehearsed.  They had to do reshoots because the guys said stuff that was verbotten (accidentally swear or mention a group that the producers didn't want to piss off) .  Then they would come up with whole new songs. Nofakery, no hints at the songs, just a buttload of talent for improvisation.

My thought has always been that they have more concentrated practice at those games - that is to say that 3 of them are in almost all of the episodes. There may also be some disparity between how many games are filmed per episode between the two versions and there may be more "clean" ones done in the American version. Colin is consistently off on a lot of his rhythms though and takes liberties in order to make the rhymes fit and others are also far from perfect.
 
2013-07-16 12:54:45 PM  
My favorite skit was one of the "Questions Only" games, where they were doing the Godzilla spoof and Wayne Brady was running and said "Please help  me?"

I hadn't laughed so hard ever.  Until Ryan fell in to Drew's desk.  That was amazing.

I think of it like a Greatest Hits album.  There's a lot of stuff that hits the cutting room floor.  The producers work hard crafting suggestions that work well, and the host discriminates the audience's suggestions for good things (remember how many times Carey rejected "porn" for film, tv, theater styles?), but they are genuinely funny guys.  I saw the live touring Colin and Brad show last year and it was absolutely hilarious.  Well worth checking out.

As subby, I would just like to say something.

The one I was at, somebody mentioned the NRA in a song.  Producers made them reshoot the segment.  It was already a long night and they were a bit annoyed.  The reshoot involved a song insulting the producer and saying 'fark the NRA".  It was awesome, but led to yet another, tamer reshoot.

I don't think ABC's version was preplanned or rehearsed, it was just that these guy had done the show for so many years that they were very, very good at what they did.  The show was second nature and while they may not have been repeating bits, they knew how to push each other's buttons for laughs.

BTW, just saw Colin Mochre on the Canadian remake of Match Game.  Wish they'd given him more time.

Well at each taping they did four hours worth of content, and made about four or five episodes out of that four hours, so the really bad stuff is left on the cutting room floor or saved for the blooper reel.

I love the questions only game.  The one that sticks in my mind was a wild west themed one, and I think Colin was all like, "Don't you know that Black Bart is in town?"  Then later on when Wayne came out he was like, "Is somebody looking for Black Bart?"  Thanks, subby, for the reminder the new episodes start tonight.

The Canadian show is about as close a copy as you could get...think even the music is recycled.  The panelists even try to play the same roles as the original cast, but not as well, of course.

I just wish they'd get more younger improvisers into the mix. I mean, I love(d) Colin and Ryan, but it's been a very long time... let somebody new have a chance. There is a huge network of improvisers out there. Go to Second City, iO, Annoyance, UCB, or even ImprovBoston (my home theater) or others and scout some new talent.

So, after watching a few old episodes earlier in grainy sub-SD streaming online and then seeing this in calibrated 1080i...

...it's hard to believe that Ryan and Colin are only one year apart. Colin looks OLD. Ryan barely looks older than he did on the original episodes.

Wayne looks exactly the same, minus the newly douchey goatee.  Aisha Tyler is just hot.

As far as the show itself, it feels exactly like the old episodes. Ryan, Colin, and Wayne haven't missed a beat.

...now we have Lauren Cohen in a TWD-inspired sketch. Awesome.

Aisha Tyler is already a huge improvement over Drew, imho. It's a lot less frat-like.

I can't agree more.  Too much focus on the guest, let the 4 do their improve and get the audience involved.   That has been proven since the UK days.

I think they'll keep it until the performers want out. That is the only redeeming show on CW. And they just sucked in anyone who's been alive and understands comedy for the last 15 years. But farking god was that hilarious. The best hour on TV this week since Newsroom sunday night.

IlGreven: My only real complaint: If you're gonna use the guest that much, just make them the 4th improv-er.


Agreed. I liked the old format where the guest performer came on for two games. Though it was the same here (not including credits), I think because the old format was: 3 games-Commercial break-2 games-CB-winner game-credits and this new format is 2 games-CB-1 game-CB-1 game-CB-credits it just seems like they use the guest more.

seriously, get rid of the commercial breaks or make it a full hour an episode (and do back to back episodes), or go back to the old format.

The material was fantastic though. God, that sideways scene was one of the best things they've done.

Meh, if they need it to draw people in and keep it on the air, I'm fine with it. Occasionally you strike gold.

I live in Ky and I don't get CW or AMC. Time Warner has basically made it so I have to pirate the new Whose Line and Breaking Bad.
/I had to do the same with Breaking Bad last year after calling them,I did the same thing today for CW.

Both episodes were great. And they finally found a girl that can keep up with the others improv wise.

What a treat- thank you Subby, and thank you mods for posting this because I wouldn't have known otherwise. 

I hope- no, pray- that Ryan at some point in a skit turns around and yells "LANA!"

Rewatch the first two seasons of Drew's Whose Line, he did the same thing then he just kinda went with "eh, fark it. Its just something we brought over from the British, you know what we do"

Just caught it on the west coast feed. It was great. However there were too many commercial breaks. And are they going to have a special guest ever episode though? Because that would be pretty dumb. That Glee dude was good, but he was in more bits than that Helen girl. Just make the fourth guest the "special" guest then. I mean really. It's sort of silly otherwise. Aisha was pretty good as host and with a little more experience she'll be great.
 
2013-07-17 12:26:09 AM  
Aisha Tyler is no Drew Carey. And she's definitely no Clive Anderson.

JonnyBGoode: Aisha Tyler is no Drew Carey. And she's definitely no Clive Anderson.


I'm chalking it up to initial jitters. Aisha needs to get more involved - I hesitantly use the term, "loose", but that's what pops to mind. She appears too stiff, too "MC-ish", not really in on the joke. The second-half episode saw her a bit more open & involved, but, still, it didn't seem relaxed enough.

However, I'm optimistic. The show was pretty good, and has some promise. I miss "Props", but "Sideways View" was worthwhile as a new bit (as long as they don't overuse it.) The ridiculous advertisement spacing has to go - it's hard to remain involved with the show, especially as CW is busily advertising far shiattier shows during those ad blocks.

FormlessOne: Aisha needs to get more involved - I hesitantly use the term, "loose", but that's what pops to mind. She appears too stiff


I'm sure she'll loosen up after a nice stiff drink and a nice stiff something else. I'll make sure to help her prepare for the next taping. And after we're done taping, she can MC an episode of Whose Line.
 
2013-07-17 02:55:52 AM  
Also, I think they need to drop Aisha's mic when she's laughing during skits. It's way too noticeable.

Lost Thought 00: IlGreven: My only real complaint: If you're gonna use the guest that much, just make them the 4th improv-er.

The actors are about as good at improve as you or I.


Many actors have some improv training as part of their acting education. In fact, many actors got their start in improv. Hell, if they wanted to stick with Walking Dead, they could have gotten Steven Yeun (Glenn from Walking Dead). He started off as a performer at Second City. He's a skilled improviser.

The other thing is that improv isn't that difficult when you're surrounded by experts. If the entire troupe is new, there can be problems, but if you're paired with an expert, they make you look good. It's their JOB to make you look good.

I think that's something in the carnival scene that Ryan and Colin did a little incorrectly, actually. Kevin made a few offers that were completely steamrolled by Ryan and Colin for the sake of cheap physical humor. Sure, it got a laugh, but it was at the expense of the scene. I don't think they would have been able to get away with that if Kevin were replaced with Wayne.
 
2013-07-17 09:50:24 AM  
I would love to see Misha Collins as a guest on this. He's as shameless as Colin on his Twitter account.
 
2013-07-17 09:58:03 AM  
I notice both Ryan and Wayne are Executive Producers - good for them
but not Colin - :(

some parts were a little risque for my 10 year old but we all enjoyed the show

The part where Lauren knocks Wayne on his ass is definitely going on the highlight reel.
 
2013-07-17 02:34:17 PM  

JonnyBGoode: Aisha Tyler is no Drew Carey. And she's definitely no Clive Anderson.


The reason Drew Carey worked so well as a host is because it was obvious they were all friends and just trying to make each other laugh. Really made it a lot of fun. Aisha Tyler doesn't have that yet, but I could imagine her being very good once she builds a rapport with Ryan/Colin/Wayne.
 
2013-07-17 05:58:24 PM  

Wiseass: Did not read the whole thread, but one of the funniest moments for me was when Ryan was doing his Carol Channing impersonation and broke the neon



"I'm Spartacus!"
"Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do you?"
 
2013-07-17 06:21:12 PM  
okay I loved it..the sideways game thing was hilarious...

and does anyone else think Wayne and Aisha are bumpin uglies?  I sensed a weird vibe between them...
 
2013-07-17 10:28:42 PM  
Looks like WL premiered with nearly 3 million viewers, which is apparently pretty good for CW at any time of the year (much less summer), so that bodes well for the future.  It also had more viewers for the 2nd episode than for the 1st.
