The Soup Ending After 22 Seasons

The Soup

E! will soon serving its last bowl of The Soup. The network announced on Wednesday that the long-running, late-night clip show, which pokes fun at reality television, soap operas, and just about everything in pop culture, is coming to an end after 22 seasons. Its series finale will air on Friday, Dec. 18, at 10 p.m.

The Soup first began in 1991, when it was originally called Talk Soup and hosted by Greg Kinnear, who held the position until 1995. Kinnear was then followed by John Henson (1995-99), Hal Sparks (1999-2000), and Aisha Tyler (2001-02). E! then rebooted the show as The Soup with McHale as host in 2004.

“We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of The Soup,”said Jeff Olde, EVP of programming and development for E! in a statement. “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.”

McHale took to Twitter on Thursday to thank the show’s fans (and of course, Kim Kardashian). Check out his messages below:
