E!’s The Soup with Joel McHale is ending after 12 years (or 22 years if you count Talk Soup which started in 1991 with Greg Kinnear). It’s been a good run but think it’s time for Joel McHale to do other things. I used to be a big fan of the show but I stopped watching a year or so ago because I couldn’t take all the reality shows anymore. That was the whole point to The Soup but I couldn’t stomach one more clip of the idiot Kardashians. Now E! dedicate their entire channel to that wretched family. But Joel McHale was great as host and probably the best host out of the bunch. Maybe, just once more, I’ll watch the final show where Joel makes fun of Kim Kardashian’s giant Death Star of an ass.

The Hollywood Reporter posted about the news:

After 12 years, Joel McHale is bidding farewell to The Soup.

The news comes after a lengthy run, during which the affable actor-comedian has balanced the E! series with a busy schedule that’s included film work and several seasons on Community. 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.

McHale’s final show, which will also mark the series’ last, will air Dec. 18. In the weeks leading up to it, the host is expected to reflect on the franchise’s most memorable moments. E!’s prior iteration, Talk Soup, premiered in 1991 with Greg Kinnear as its then frontman. Other emcees followed, including Hal Sparks in the late ’90s and Aisha Tyler in the early aughts, before McHale took over a rebooted version in 2004.
