The long-running show is ending in December after 22 years. (YouTube) (Newser) – Dec. 18 will be your last chance to talk about chicks, man. That's because E! announced Wednesday it's ending venerable network stalwart The Soup after 22 years, Deadline reports. The show—which started life as Talk Soup—launched the career of first host, Greg Kinnear. After hosting stints from John Henson, Hal Sparks, and Aisha Tyler, Joel McHale took over green-screen duties, making fun of reality shows, celebrities, and pop culture for the past 12 years, according to the Los Angeles Times. "We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of The Soup," E! executive Jeff Olde said in a statement. "The Soup has delivered countless laughs and unforgettable episodes, and we are grateful to the talented team’s fearless wit and clever approach week after week." So meaty.
