Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie on Whose Line Is It Anyway

The CW will once again turn to comedy to help fill out its summer schedule — with the hope that some of the new shows it debuts in summer 2015 work better than the 2014 crop.
The network’s summer 2015 schedule includes the return of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” which will be paired with “Penn and Teller: Fool Us” on Monday nights starting in July. A pair of scripted comedies, the British anthology  “Dates” and the CW Seed-developed “Significant Mother,” will join the lineup in July and August. 
“Dates” follows the first encounters between people who met via an online dating service; the rotating cast includes Oona Chaplin (“Game of Thrones”), Andrew Scott (“Sherlock”) and Katie McGrath (“Dracula”). “Significant Mother” centers on a young restaurateur (Josh Zuckerman, “90210”) who comes home from a business trip to discover his roommate is dating his newly separated mom (Krista Allen, “The L.A. Complex”).
A new unscripted show called “A Wicked Offer,” which asks couples to do morally questionable things for money, also debuts in August.
New cycles of “America’s Next Top Model” and “Masters of Illusion” are on tap for summer as well, along with the previously announced third season of “Beauty and the Beast.” New series “The Messengers” will continue into summer.
