Aisha Tyler’s Whose Line is it Anyway Scores Ratings Surprise

Now here’s something we don’t see very often. The CW’s Whose Line is it Anyway, hosted by The Talk’s Aisha Tyler, premiered last night and pulled in ratings strong enough to beat an ABC original hour of programming, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The revival of improv comedy Whose Line Is It Anyway? surprised on the CW. The series topped an ABC original in the hour, averaging a 1.1 rating with adults 180-49. in the hour. It also marked the network's most-watched premiere since Arrow with 2.9 million viewers.

Whose Line is it Anyway also stars Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles.

Not surprised, the original on ABC did very well despite being up against Friends, and the repeats did really well on ABC Family.

And Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie are guaranteed to always be funny. I was a bit on the fence because I always enjoyed Drew Carey, but I thought Aisha was a good host as well.

It was hilarious...made me a bit nostalgic for the 90s and reminded me of why I used to like Wayne Brady.
