Recording for the next season of Whose Line is due to start next Friday, with a change in studio to CBS Studio Center.

http://www.tvtickets.com/fmi/xsl/shows/browserecord.xsl?&Show=whose+anyway?

Anyone care to speculate as to who will be at the tapings? Obviously Aisha, Ryan, Colin and Wayne will be there, but I'm talking about fourth seaters and special guests they wheel out.

Colin shared a very funny post today on Facebook...

"Off to LA for Whose Line tapings. Hoping to write my improv on the plane."

Ah, season eleven. Or season three. Or season 21. Whatever you want to call it. I'm just hoping for a reduced role for special guests. Season two was an improvement in some ways, so here's hoping.

Is it at all logical to hope for Chip Esten to return? I know he's busy with that country show on ABC, and the tours that go with it. I also think it would be great (and maybe still remotely possible) for Josie Lawrence to come back too. She did "Trust Us With You Life" with Colin, Wayne, and Jonathan, after all.

When it comes to games, I want to see Bartender return. Though with the longstanding rule of the game, the singer who debuted the earliest (be it UK or US) tends the bar. So, Wayne would take the role, unless Brad (or another UK veteran) is on. Though it's not like the rule is solid anyway, as I can think of only one time it wasn't in place.

As much as I felt the special guests added nothing to the games in which they appeared (except for a select few), I am actually starting to think the they were a brilliant move on CW's behalf.

Whose Line is incredibly cheap to make. I'd imagine a special guest is half the budget of an episode! But CW wanted this programme they've brought back (and in some aspects, closer to the original British version) to be a success. So while Whose Line fans (like us) were destined to watch it (like a Star Wars fan will watch Episode VII this December despite being slapped in the face by George Lucas countless times by now), but other people? Not so much. So to drum up attention for Whose Line returning, they got the advertisement for the show in gear.

They got special guests, tags on Twitter and I'm sure pages on social media and whatnot. Now that the show has bought for a third (new) season, I am sure they can tone down the special guests, and spend the extra money on more episodes.

Come for the special guest, stay for Colin Mochrie. That's the sale pitch.

I'm not arguing the reasoning behind them. I just want them to be toned down each season until they're gone.

They should have seated special guests like the Whoopi Goldberg/Robin Williams episodes. I thought that formula worked really well.

I like that! Very Happy

I also think that Mike McShane should make a comeback of sorts. He's still doing improv, mainly on stage with Paul Merton's Impro Chums in the UK, and making a guest appearance with the Comedy Store Players in London this Sunday.

So happy Gary's coming back, he's awesome! Jonathan's okay I guess, but I think he's scared of Ryan and Colin for turning him into the buttmonkey in Improv-a-Ganza Wink

Jeff did one of his tapings on Tuesday Very Happy

And Laura Hall confirmed on her Facebook page that next week's tapings will have Jeff Davis again, and Greg Proops. Yippee-ki-yay! 😀

If I remember right Chip has a contract that is preventing him from doing WL.

I am still looking forward to the new season.

I sure hope he didn't sign a contract that would prevent him from doing specifically WL, but rather that he would be occupied with his other project.

Probably a version of an anti-competing clause. He's trapped in Nashville, and likely can't participate in any other prime time network shows.

Good to hear Greg's back.

So, after wikipedia'ing these guys, within those three tapings, there's Bill Nye, an athlete, a Duck Dynasty guy, and four CW stars.

And from Gary's taping, at least it's people with some form of honest fame. I expect the Cedric the Entertainer episode to be the season premeire, since CW has a new show with that guy on directly before Whose Line.


Medbe, Hoedowns still end with the fourth-seater, right?
