The new show will be hosted, not by Drew Carey, but by Aisha Tyler. Tyler who is on “The Talk” also does comedy and voices Lana on FX’s Archer.
Mochrie, Ryan Stiles and Wayne Brady are all coming back to the show and will appear in every episode along with one guest comedian.
No word on why Drew Carey is not involved, but Entertainment Weekly said Carey’s rep told them she did not know anything about the new show.
