From LA Examiner: Aisha Tyler Talks 'Whose Line'; Scott Porter Previews 'Hart of Dixie' S3; Amy B. Harris Talks 'The Carrie Diaries' NYC Expansion; 'The Mindy Project' Spoilers...

When The CW first announced they were bringing back Whose Line is it Anyway? and that Aisha Tyler was going to be hosting, it was a bit of a bittersweet announcement. While thrilling to have such a creative, funny, original show back on air with fresh life breathed into it, it was hard to deny the disappointment that the comedienne was going to be sitting behind the desk doling out points rather than up on the stage performing alongside Colin Mochrie, Wayne Brady, and Ryan Stiles.

In case you need a refresher: Mindy (Mindy Kaling) cut off her hair as a symbol could compromise and take herself out of her comfort zone-- and to show her boyfriend (guest star Anders Holm) that she was ready to go with him to Haiti.

The cliffhanger aspect came in because Mindy is such a specific personality, there were so many wild possibilities of how she'd "deal" in Haiti.
