I wouldn't never call Talk Soup a "can't miss" show. But it's one of those shows that I always stick around if I'm channel surfing.
It's been on for 11 years. The hosts really showed a lot, I like how they played with the crew and had smart ass remarks for the idioticy of day time television
Greg Kinnear was a good host to start off with but then NBC called him to do the 1:30 am show. I got really into it when John Henson (he got a white streak on the side of his hair) got in, he was really funny and so sarcastic. Then he left and it hit a low with Hal Sparks (queer as folk now) he lasted for a season and for the last 2 years Aisha Tylor (5th wheel) stepped in and she rocked, he just seemed really comfortable and witty doing this show.
This was really the first show that E! got over. I won't lose any sleep over it (lol) but it's sad to see it go, I'll miss it.
thanx to His heelness for the modification to make it PG
E is one of my favorite networks at the moment. True Hollywood Story is pretty good even if they screw up some of the facts. I like the fact that they update the top entertainment stories at the bottom of the screen every half-hour. Also E is the exclusive home for Saturday Night Live reruns starting in 2003.
As for Talk Soup, the best host was John Henson.
"Catching Hitler was neato!" "Next stop, Hirohito!" Bart Simpson
In a word Wow. This is incredibly well done and was worth the wait for the arrival in this format. The "animated anecdotes" (think pop-up video without them showing up every few seconds) is easily my favourite feature.
