Aisha Tyler (“The Talk”) and Wayne Brady (“Let’s Make a Deal”) are not only appearing daily in their successful CBS Daytime shows, but the two have also joined together to successfully re-launch “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” the former ABC series “where everything is made up and the points do not matter.” Now airing on The CW for a summer run, “Whose Line” averaged 2.9 million viewers and 1.1/4 in Adults 18-49 for its two-episode premiere last night according to TVbytheNumbers.

Per the website, the show helped give The CW its best performance in Adults 18-49 rating in its given time period since February 1, 2011.

The series stars Tyler as host (replacing “The Price is Right’s” Drew Carey) with Brady, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie providing the comedic entertainment. Along with a special guest comedian in each episode, the cast members must put their comedic skills to the test through a series of spontaneous improv games.

Whose Line Is It Anyway?” airs Tuesdays (8:00-8:30 p.m. ET, with encores at 8:30p.m.) on The CW.
