R.I.P. to The Soup


After 22 years, E!’s pop culture roundup series The Soup—the place for mocking everything ridiculous about talk shows and reality TV, which is basically everything—is ending.

The final episode will air on December 18, probably with tons of celebrity guests, both popular and intensely irrelevant, as is its tradition. While Joel McHale has hosted the show since 2004, it’s been through several iterations in its history.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

To be sure, The Soup has long had a complicated relationship with its host network, which often serves as the butt of its jokes. (Hello, Kardashians.) Though never a Keeping Up with the Kardashians-sized juggernaut, the KP Anderson-run clip show has long generated enviable buzz and proved largely consistent, even as it bounced around the schedule.

There’s a strong likelihood that former hosts—Greg Kinnear, John Henson, Hal Sparks and Aisha Tyler when it was called Talk Soup—will make a cameo on that finale episode.
