    I watch a lot of TV and i rarely see a show that bores me so in the first episode. I love Whose Line, but Riot seems like it is trying too hard to be entertaining and failing miserably. Also, this new formula of using Aussie hosts... not getting it. One and done.

    An expectation of failure is built into the comedy, so that at times the contestants are funny only in the attempt to be funny. At other times, given the circumstances, it may seem miraculous that they can be funny at all.

    Is there anything great here? No. Is it goofy fun? Yes.

    The main reason to watch is for its signature gimmick, a set tilted at 22 degrees, where, several times per episode, performers are imprisoned and told to improvise a scene.... There’s no describing how hysterical this is; you have to see it.
