E! is pulling the plug on The Soup after 24 years. Joel McHale’s final episode will air on December 18th.
The show premiered as Talk Soup in 1991 with Greg Kinnear as host. John Henson, Hal Sparks, and Aisha Tyler each had short runs hosting the show before Joel took over.
The network said in a statement,
“We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of The Soup. 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. 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.”
Yes, The Soup will be missed.
