E! To Serve Its Last Bowl Of The Soup — Joel McHale's Second Show To Get Canned This Year!

Filed under: TV NewsLate Night TVJoel McHale

It looks like the soup's actually not on.

After more than a decade of hosting The Soup, it looks like Joel McHale will be putting down his ladle.

E! announced on Wednesday that the late night clip show would be ending its run on December 18 after an impressive 12 years on the air.

The 43-year-old comedian had been with the series since 2004 when it was re-branded from Talk Soup, a similar show that featured Greg Kinnear, John Henson, Hal Sparks, and Aisha Tyler as hosts at different times.

Interestingly enough, this isn't Joel's only canned show of 2015 — despite fans' best efforts, cult classic Community unfortunately got cancelled back in June after a season streamed exclusively on Yahoo!

But is this really the last we've seen of The Soup… 12 seasons and movie, anyone??

John Henson, a star center for the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks, recounted his humiliating experience with racial discrimination on Monday.

Henson — who just signed a $45 million contract with the Bucks — pulled up to the store, walked up to the door, and found the store's employees had remotely locked it before he could enter.

From there, when he knocked, the employees ran into a back room, evidently concerned about Henson entering the jewelry store.

The basketball star detailed the entire unfortunate incident in an Instagram post:

This is SO tragic!

John Henson, Muppets puppeteer and son of Jim and Jane Henson, passed away on Friday after suffering a massive heart attack. And on Valentine’s day, of all days!

The puppeteer’s family let people know on Facebook, telling their fans:

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter. John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned.”

Ugh! Just completely tragic! He was so young!

Our thoughts are with John’s family and friends!
