I can already hear the collective groan of hundreds of Harold teams nationwide, but I can also hear the collective squeals of Ryan Stiles fans. (Guys, there’s a LOT of voices happening in my head right now.) The venerable comedy program Whose Line Is It Anyway?, which ran on ABC from 1998 to 2004, will be returning to television according to regular series performer Colin Mochrie’s Twitter. The show popularized short-form improvisation and convinced weird suburban kids to spend a lot of money on improv classes once they managed to move to major cities after college. Now there will be a new generation of out-of-touch parents who think they understand what kinds of jokes their twentysomething children are making on stage, who will then be really disappointed when they find out their sons are miming masturbation and convincing their female colleagues to pretend to be lesbians on stage rather than turning accordions and inflatable bananas into hats.
