“Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza” Returns to GSN Starting November 16th
We’ve got a small GSN schedule update this afternoon that’s going to elicit an interesting reaction. Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza, the improv comedy show which is essentially a spin off of fan favorite Whose Line is it Anyway?, is returning to GSN’s lineup. The series will re-debut starting Friday, November 16th, from 8:00PM ET to 10:00PM ET. It will replace The Pyramid which has been floundering in the ratings for weeks now.
Improv-A-Ganza initially debuted in April 2011 but only lasted through June due to lower-than-expected ratings. They’re obviously hoping this go-around does slightly better. It’s had a long break and never ran that long so its 40 episodes will seem fresh. With four episodes on Fridays only they have at least 10 weeks to judge how it will go.
Look, I know Improv-A-Ganza got some negative attention because it’s not a game show, but the improv comedy fan in me is happy and I’m very happy to see it back. And, again, sorry, but The Pyramid has not worked. Improv-A-Ganza may work out for them as a weekly show. We’ll see starting next week. I’m just glad to see the show back. I was always a big fan, and with Whose Line not around anymore it’s nice to have some improv comedy back on US television.
