HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress/comedian Aisha Tyler's podcast, Girl on Guy, only months old, reached the major milestone of one million downloads today. A show about "stuff guys love brought to you by the ultimate guys' girl," Girl on Guy features Aisha in uncensored, compelling conversation with charismatic guests at the forefront of their fields. Aisha is very busy right now: while her podcast soars in popularity and critical acclaim, she is also moving into a new role as co-host of CBS's hit panel show The Talk, and her hit F/X show Archer is gearing up for its third season, starting January 2012.

From comedians, actors and musicians to athletes, novelists and distillers, Aisha's guests are varied and dynamic.  Girl on Guy was an instant hit, vaulting into the iTunes comedy top ten upon launch — one of the only female-hosted podcasts to do so — and even hit number one alongside veteran programs from Adam Carolla, Mark Maron and Chris Hardwick

Though Aisha is a well-established comedian, and the often-hilarious show falls under the rubrick of "comedy podcast," Girl on Guy is much more.  Aisha has conducted poignant interviews with a wide range of guests, including Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Dave Eggers, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, special-effects whiz Adam Savage, and World Poker grand-slam champ Joe Hachem. Her interview with Questlove, influential drummer of iconic hip-hop band The Roots, is already being called by many the seminal interview with the tastemaking iconoclast. To commemorate Veteran's Day, Aisha will post a moving interview with a young wounded warrior — veteran of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan — who describes with frank honesty the price he paid to serve his country.

Currently voicing sexy superspy Lana on FX's hit animated show "Archer," Aisha Tyler is best known as host of E!'s Emmy-nominated "Talk Soup," and the first African-American with an extended character arc on NBC's Friends.  She's also enjoyed substantial roles on "CSI," "24," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Nip/Tuck," "The Boondocks," "Reno 911" and "The Ghost Whisperer," alongside numerous appearances on "The Tonight Show," "Late Night with David Letterman," "The Late Late Show," "Larry King Live," and more.  Aisha is the best-selling author of "Swerve: Reckless Observations of a Post-Modern Girl," has starred in numerous movies including "Death Sentence," "Balls of Fury," "Black Water Transit," "Bedtime Stories" and "The Santa Clause films," and can next be seen in the 2013 release "The Babymakers," directed by Jay Chandrasekhar. Her first one-hour comedy special, "Aisha Tyler Is Lit," debuted on Comedy Central in 2009, and her latest short film, "Committed," which she wrote, directed and starred in, just won its category at the Short Toronto Indie Film Festival.
