‘The Soup’ is coming to an end on E!.

“We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of The Soup,” said Jeff Olde, EVP of Programming & Development for E! “The Soup has delivered countless laughs and unforgettable episodes, and we are grateful to the talented team’s fearless wit and clever approach week after week.

We repeat: The network announced on Wednesday that it was ending the influential clip show that has skewered, ridiculed and otherwise mocked absurd moments in TV and pop culture after a 22-season run.The news comes after a lengthy run, in which the affable actor-comedian has balanced the E! series with a busy schedule that’s included film work and several seasons on Community.“The Soup” ending – We start today in our TV Quick Hits with the surprising news that the long-running clip comedy show, currently hosting by Joel McHale, is going to be coming to an end at the end of the year.

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.” Joel McHale will end his 12-year tenure as host — one in which he reinvigorated the franchise with his withering one-liners, which were directed even at the network’s other stars (see: the Kardashians) — on Dec. 18. In recent years, he’s also hosted both the ESPYs and the White House Correspondents Dinner, raising his profile along with questions about his future with the cable clip show. It’s an honor to be back at the Billboard Hollywood Party for our second year.” Chelsea Handler’s new documentary – While you wait for Handler’s new talk show, she announces in the video below that there is a four-part documentary special entitled “Chelsea Does” coming in January, where she takes on a variety of different subjects. At the time, McHale said, “I’m thrilled to be working at E! for two more years hosting ‘The Soup.” No word from McHale’s reps or the network on why the original plan was cut short.

McHale, who signed a deal with E! last year, to host The Soup through 2016, has seen his star has risen over the years: He has been a key cast member of Community and has emerged as a go-to host in Hollywood and beyond (ESPYs, the Spirit Awards, White House Correspondents’ Dinner). The sarcastic comedy show has welcomed a slew of celebrity guests during its lengthy run, including Norman Reedus, Seth Green, Lucy Lawless, Chris Hardwick, RuPaul, Joe Manganiello, Wendy Williams, Jon Cryer, Joe Jonas, Gabourey Sidibe, Larry King, Kelly Ripa, Allison Janney, James Corden, Jane Lynch, Marilyn Manson, Tyra Banks, Martha Stewart, Nene Leaks, Nancy Grace, George Takei, Chevy Chase, Sean Combs, Eminem, Demi Lovato, Katie Lee Gifford, Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Shaquille O’Neal, Carrot Top and the late Joan Rivers.
