Talk Soup started in the '90s as a clip show taking the piss out of the inane fuckery of talk shows. Then came the Aughts, and with 'em a little thing called reality TV, and TS became simply The Soup, a clip show taking the piss out of the weapons-grade inane fuckery of I Love New York and its ilk. Launched the career of the great Joel McHale, Number Two on Tyra Banks's "To Kill" list (just after that dolphin that winked at her at Sea World).
YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
The Soup started as the What the...? Awards but was renamed to keep its ties to the original Talk Soup.
