E! Network Canceling Parody Show ‘The Soup’

The E! Entertainment network is pulling the plug on “The Soup,” its weekly show with host Joel McHale that mocks other television series.

McHale has been host for 12 years, and the network said Wednesday that he will do the final show on Dec. 18.

The program premiered in 1991 as “Talk Soup,” specifically targeting talk shows for parody, with Greg Kinnear as host. John Henson, Hal Sparks and Aisha Tyler took turns as hosts before it was relaunched as “The Soup” with McHale as host in 2004.

There was no immediate word on why E! decided to end the show. (AP)
