This show is beyond bad. We're supposed to believe it's ad lib and not scripted. Yeah, right.

Have you never seen any sort of improv comedy?

Drew Carey had done a similar show a little while back.

Clearly not scripted. It would be funnier if it were scripted.

I always liked the UK version but never got too into the US episodes I saw, even though there was a fair amount of Ryan Stiles.

Yes I have, many times, and these skits are obviously worked out ahead of time. But feel free to suspend disbelief like wrestling fans.

The show isn't live, and they still keep in a lot of "miss" sketches and activities. A lot of what could be telling to the spontaneous nature of the show is probably edited out in post. Unless you have any sort of reasoning behind your assumption, its more likely to assume that TV editors are doing their job and cutting unfunny bits to streamline the show.

No, Drew Carey did THIS show. Or rather, his own version of the British original, which differed from Carey's in that the original was actually funny. I think it was the deadpan host.

Basically, Drew Carey was Ah-nold's Total Recall, this new show will be Colin Farrell's, and the British show was a story by a Dick.

I grew up watching the UK Whose Line. There were some fucking brilliant people on it. The best was when they'd make fun of Clive Anderson.

I loved the UK one when they showed it on BBC America.

Oh course wrestling is scripted, most fans who watch it know that. It's a scripted TV show like many others. I'm not sure what link you're trying to make between improv comedy and pro wrestling. Other than that some things are improvised because not everything goes according to plan when peoples bodies are on the line.
