`Thank God You're Here' viewers will be greeted with improv

Actors perform sketches in an amusing-enough show

April 09, 2007|By Los Angeles Daily News

Thank God You're Here is a show aimed at everyone who misses Whose Line is It, Anyway?, an earlier series that featured improvised comedy and taped long and hard enough until the featured performers came up with material that was actually funny.

Here, dispensable host David Alan Grier and unnecessary judge David Foley oversee the proceedings as a series of comic actors are thrown into ridiculous costumes and are plunged, ostensibly unprepared, into comic vignettes with other actors in which the first line of the sketch is, invariably, "Thank God you're here."

On TV Thank God You're Here premieres at 9 tonight on WBAL (Channel 11).
