Future: The CW Renews “Whose Line Is It Anyway” For Third Season
Today, multiple sources have reported The CW renewed its rendition of Whose Line Is It Anyway? for a third season (11th overall). With nine episodes remaining this season, The crazy cast of Aisha Tyler, Wayne Brady, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie will be returning for another 24 more episodes in 2015 with more funny skits and more special guest star appearances. This news is not a shocker in the least, despite the 47% decline in the year-to-year season premiere ratings (Season 9: 2.92 million; Season 10: 1.74 million). Whose Line? is currently The CW's top-rated series this summer so far. Throughout the overall 2013-2014 season, Whose Line? has held steady compared to its first season on the network, ranking 6th in total viewership and 8th in the key A18-49 demo among The CW's 16 regular-airing programs.

Stay tuned for new episodes throughout the summer and if you've missed any shows from this season, The CW's Whose Line? video page will help you play catch up.
