‘The Soup’ Hosts: Where Are They Now?
Long before Joel McHale took the reins of “The Soup,” the “Talk Soup” can opened into the pop culture stratosphere.

Debuting in January 1991, E!’s pop culture comedy commentary show, then known as “Talk Soup,” became a cable TV staple, launching the careers of a handful of comedians.
