In the 90’s there was a little show on E! called Talk Soup, which in 2004 was “re-mixed” into a much better show that we now know as The Soup. I can’t get enough of this 1/2 hour weekly show of utter hilarity during which host Joel McHale “reports” on the latest in pop culture news and reality show debauchery.
Instead of your typical news show segments (like Weather, Local News, and Politics), The Soup’s segments include “Chicks Maaaan,” “Let’s Take some E!,” “Reality Show Clip Time,” and “What the Kids are Watching,” among others.
I can see how these segments may sound foreign and unfamiliar, if you’ve never seen the show. To help clarify, check out this clip from a couple weeks ago. Joel points out the sudden insertion of a spaghetti-eating cat photo into a segment about binge drinking on the Mike & Juliet Show.
New episodes of The Soup air every Friday at 10pm on E!. If you can’t wait that long, The Soup has its own blog with additional clips.
