Last night on E!ís The Soup, Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash did what they do best: skewer and satirize a movement in the cultural zeitgeist. In this case, the HBO series True Detective, which literally no one on planet earth can stop talking about and/or obsessing over. And we have to admit: their purposefully confounding clip is pretty funny.
Unscripted television is E!ís bread and butter, and the network has some new ones up their sleeve. The latest announcements on the unscripted development slate include an inside look at the top families of Sonoma wine country, the lives of high-stakes female poker pros, and a photography competition series. The development announcements follow on new series and a bunch of new specials planned for the network.
The Walking Dead returns for its third season in just a few days, and that hasn't gone unnoticed by The Soup. Soup of the Walking Dead has returned! This year's installment features the return of Norman Reedus and Steven Yeun, and comes with the subtitle A Pop of Culture. They don't know what that means.
Adult Swim's Children's Hospital managed to earn itself an Emmy nomination this year in the Outstanding Special Class - Short-format Live-Action Entertainment Programs category. I don't know if you've heard of that category, but it sounds like a tough one to win, what with the number of webseries for hugely popular TV shows filling most of the nomination spots. Children's Hospital star and executive producer Rob Corddry has taken a negative approach to campaigning for the Emmy this year.
There are certain TV shows that weren't even on my radar until Joel McHale started poking fun at them on his E! clip show, The Soup. Among them is The Wendy Williams Show. So it put a smile on my face to see that McHale paid Wendy Williams a visit on her show. Check out the video ahead!
At the end of the month, E! will be shaking things up by moving the excellent pop-culture clip show The Soup from Fridays to Wednesdays. Whether you consider this good news or bad news probably depends on how packed your TV-viewing schedule is.
The zombie virus appears to be spreading. With the premiere of The Walking Deadís second season less than a week away, E! appears to have contracted the virus and this Friday night, The Soup is fighting it. Check out the trailer for this Friday nightís special three-minute television event, which appears to feature at least two veteran Walking Dead zombie-fighters.
Ashley Hebert may not have found true love when she competed for the affections of Brad Womack on The Bachelor, but apparently she hasnít given up (on finding love on a dating competition series). ABC announced today that Hebert will be the seventh Bachelorette when the series resumes this May.
E!ís pop-culture clip show The Soup just celebrated its 300th episode and there will be many more for Joel McHale as he just renewed his contract with the network.
We had the opportunity to speak with Joel McHale following the panel for the NBC's Community, which took place today at Comic Con. When the subject of McHaleís E! clip show The Soup came up, he revealed that his contract ends this year.
While you might not be a regular Soup viewer (though I highly recommend you try The Soup. Itís quite tasty), Joel McHale still wants Cinema Blend readers to check out his new show. Check out this Community video clip, which includes a clever little intro by McHale.
Adding on another job to his resume and a spot on network television, this news brings McHale that much closer to being just like his multi-job-having arch nemesis Ryan Seacrest. Community will center on Jeff, an attorney who has to go back to college when he finds out his degree was deemed invalid.
Whether heís making fun of Ryan Seacrest, poking fun at reality TV or talking about chicks, man, Joel McHale is hilarious on a weekly basis. Now it looks like heís going to be bringing his comedic skills to NBCís new comedy pilot Community, which Anthony and Joe Russo are set to direct.
While I now feel confident in my opinion that BSG is indeed one of the best TV series ever, itís kind of nice to know that there are others out there who share this opinion. Among them are Buffy creator, Joss Whedon, The Soupís Joel McHale, Seth Green and others.
