Anyone watch the Soup on E! ?
« on: October 06, 2006, 08:49:26 PM »
I was just wondering what some of you'all thought of the greatest show on Television "The Soup"? I never miss it and think it would be right up the MST3K community's alley... thoughts?

it's ok. I liked it alot more when it was Talk Soup with John Henson. I hated it when they had Hal Sparks on there.
I really do like pie.

Didn't know about it when it was 'talk soup' although one of my roomates said that exact thing... I jthink I like it so much because its a show dedicated to making fun of reality tv and other celebrity sh*t - pure gold!

It's very good these days, I like Joel more than I thought I would, I just hope it's successful enough to survive longer than all the post-Henson Soup cast swaps...which it seems like it's going to, now in its 3rd season?

At first I thought it was just a cheap blanding, but then I heard Tom Macnamara's voice and realized I was in a happy place.

on a similar note

ever watch the the sports riff show "Cheap Seats". I didn't like it at first, but then it grew on me. I especially like it when they show old school wrestling, which I would watch anyway, riffs or no.

I watched it in the beginning when Greg Kinnear was the host and I thought it was fun. John Henson was good too. I never watched it with any other hosts until its current incarnation. Going to a weekly format instead of daily was probably for the best. Its mindless fun.

This is one of those shows I would watch more if I could figure out when the Hell it's on.

    Don't forget about another show that is very similar, Best Week Ever on VH1.  Like the Soup, it has new episodes on Friday night and several reruns over the weekend.

Best Week ever is full of hack comedians who couldn't find something funny to say if they had a gun to there head................. was that harsh?

A little harsh but I love Doug Benson's movie reviews over on bobanddavid.com.

If you COULD find something funny to say with a gun to your head, you'd probably be the most brilliant comedian ever.

I don't normally watch a lot of TV, but if I happen to catch this show, I always watch it.  It's consistently funny.

The Best Week Ever is way too annoying for me.

Really? I always thought that when your under pressure is when you perform the best....
