‘The Soup’ Will End Its 22-Season Run on E! Next Month


The Soup comes to an end next month after over two decades on the air. Variety reports that E! has decided to cancel The Soup after current host Joel McHale wraps up the episode scheduled for Friday, December 18th. McHale has hosted The Soup for the past 12 years – Greg Kinnear, John Henson, Hal Sparks, and Aisha Tyler also had hosting stints during the show’s run since it debuted in 1991. “We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of The Soup,” E! exec Jeff Olde said on the news. “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.”
