Critic Reviews for Whose Line Is It Anyway? Season 1

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

The nightly dial surely can use more of what this show has to offer: an anti-sitcom antidote to primetime tedium.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

We laughed hard at the Aug. 5 opener of this summer comedy series-almost as hard as host Drew Carey. But after viewing a couple more half-hours, we're a bit less enthused.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Riotously funny and unpredictable at every turn, Whose Line Is It Anyway? continuously sets new standards for comedy.
