    I always loved Whose Line is it Anyway when Drew Carey hosted and I DVR it (as I do all the shows I watch) now to watch the reboot. Watching it live is a drag because they have a commercial break every 4 to 6 or so minutes– a 30 minute show with that many commercial breaks is deadly to watch! if I didn’t DVR it, I wouldn’t watch it.

    One of my favorite shows. I have been DVRing it as there is so much on this summer it is difficult to choose what to watch, what to record. Still a fun show and amazing how they can think so fast for improv. Bring back Chip for a show or two

    I actually thought this was a better episode then the first 2.
    I also think it has WAAAAY too many commercials.
    I didn’t like that they then followed it with a repeat from last week. 3 episodes in, and a repeat already? I can see doing it on an off night like a sat or sun to promote it, but not like this.

    PS. Get more audience participation going, especially calling out random things for people to be/do/song styles, etc.

    I would suspect that the dip for whose line is due to increased DVR usage. I was happy to watch live last week because it was an hour. However, a half hour show at 8 with no follow up show just messes up the whole night.

    Whose Line has a ton of commercial breaks, but they are very very very short ones, so we are getting the same amount of episode.

    It wasn’t up against SYTYCD last week either. Count me as a fan of the reboot though, but I agree about Chip and less commercials.
