The Soup

5 Nov

In my humble opinion, the most consistently funny show on cable television is The Soup. For those unfamiliar, it is basically a thirty minute block of humorous clips from various talk, reality, and news shows during the week. I suppose that in the realm of comedic television, this show has an unfair advantage, seeing that it doesn’t need to actually write a fresh new script every week, but it never fails to entertain. The great thing about this show is that it exhibits all the ridiculous bits of shows I either don’t have the time or wouldn’t be caught dead watching (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Wendy Williams, any VH1 reality show, any reality show involving the “height-impaired”). The host, Joel Mchale is also a highlight, managing to toe the line between being outrageously funny without being obnoxious. Give the show a chance, I realize that its on the E! network, but its worth it. It airs every Friday night at 10PM, which I always miss, but it gets rerun throughout the week. Its sister show, The Dish, hosted by Topanga, is also pretty good, but she lacks the charisma of Mchale.

Here is a clip of our host drinking scotch and poking fun on the Hoda and Kathy Lee segment of the Today Show (the worst hour, of the worst morning show that one could ever subject themselves to.) Cheers!

    Shaq, you are living proof of the failure of the public education system.
