You'll be happy to know, it's just as good. It feels exactly the same.

Ryan, Colin, and Wayne are back. Aisha Tyler replaced Drew because he's on Price is Right.

Whoah - talk about marketing fail. I loved this show, and had no idea it was back!

Does she go "Noooooooooooooope!" Instead of buzzing?

Thank goodness.

Wow, I had absolutely no idea this was coming back. The ratings for yesterday are going to be one person lower than they should've been.

I happen to catch a few moments of it. I don't think that it was good as either of the older shows. The Brit show w/ Clive was the best.

Ahahaha. I just finished watching the first episode on their website. Still love it.

Everyone is great. What I love most is the level of commitment, from Ryan Stiles especially. The mark of great improv. Watching Ryan clutching the shoulders of Wayne-as-toboggan to lean into the imaginary curves really exemplifies the art form.

The biggest point the UK version has in its favor was the much wider selection of games. They didn't always work out, but that's fine, and it kept things fresher. On the other hand, Wayne, Colin, and Ryan became absolute masters at the games the first US version consistently used and were always just insanely hilarious. I saw the first two episodes of the new US version, and I think its pretty much the same as the first US version, so, still very funny. The only thing I don't like that much is the tie-in to the celebrity guests; making the improv with them be about the Walking Dead and then Glee. Also the fourth performers really doesn't get to do much; I think the celebrity guests get more screentime. But, Aisha Tyler is already a better host than Drew Carey was.

All said, I think I like the UK version the most, but only barely.

Pretty much where I am at word for word. My wife and I enjoyed ourselves and were laughing our butts off. One thing that was funny was seeing Wayne being a little star struck with someone from Glee.

Isn't there/wasn't there a new UK version of the show hosted by Colin Mochrie?

Also, I think it was funny when they were ribbing Ryan about being an old guy, between him, Colin, and Wayne, Ryan looks as if he hasn't aged since the previous show(s) where the other two have definitely aged.

Aisha Tyler is a great choice for host, It's good summer programming, but if I miss it, I don't feel like I missed anything important. It's always the same for the most part. If something else is on I'll always choose that over "whose line"

The think I like the most about the UK show was that they did not have the same 3 guys ever ep. While Ryan, Colin, Proops and Wayne (just a few) were all on there, they rotated people all the time. I like having different favors with different cast members more.

Loved the new episodes, though I saw them on the web.

I will likely never consider buying a Prius or Gatorade ever again.
