Joel McHale tweets goodbye to his ‘Soup’

19 Nov 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

“The Soup” premiered in 1991 as “Talk Soup” and launched the careers of hosts.

E!, the channel for all things Kardashian and celebrity news, has canceled its beloved cult favorite show, “The Soup.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, host Joel McHale will film his last episode Dec. 18 after twelve long years with the network. “We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of ‘The Soup.'[The show] has delivered countless laughs and unforgettable episodes, and we are grateful to the talented team’s fearless wit and clever approach week after week,” said Jeff Olde, E!’s executive vice president of programming and development, in a statement to THR. “Joel took the show to new heights for more than a decade, and his irreverent humor and unique brand of comedy as captured so perfectly on ‘The Soup’ will be missed.” Though there were other hosts before McHale’s tenure — back then, it was known as “Talk Soup” — it’s true that he did take the show to another level. On Wednesday, Nov. 18, E! announced that it would be pulling the plug on its popular clip show hosted by Joel McHale after 12 years. “We’ve had a weird ride and watched over 11,000,000 hours of terrible reality television but all good things must end,” the show’s Twitter account shared on Wednesday, followed by several other funny messages from the staff and crew behind the scenes of the show.

To prove how much we will feel his absence, here are all of the things we’ll miss about Joel and “The Soup.” Watching Joel make fun of the Kardashians was like watching someone bite the hand that feeds them, over and over again. Waiting for “Chat Stew” to come on was like waiting for “Double Jeopardy!” You know the sound that the bit makes when it pops up, and (face it) you can’t wait to say “So meeeeaty” in that voice you know all too well.
