LOS ANGELES – November 13, 2014 – While some good things must come to an end (looking at you “I Wanna Marry Harry”), the great things get up and move back to their original night! Beginning December 12th, host Joel McHale and team will pack up their green screen, DVRs and bikini wearing hairy guy and move back to Fridays! To celebrate, the first show on the new night will be the highly-anticipated, annual-ish Soup Awards which honors the most embarrassing achievements in recent television history. So don’t move off that couch, we will do all the moving for you, and tune-in to The Soup Awards on “The Soup’s” new night beginning Friday, December 12 at 10pm ET on E!
What better way to unwind from a stressful work week than watching hysterical (and Emmy-nominated) skits that pay tribute to the latest entertainment obsessions, surprise celebrity guests ripping on the most outrageous reality show moments, and McHale condensing each week’s best of the worst pop culture moments into Friday’s not-to-miss thirty-minute show? Oh I know! Do all of the above but start it off with the best (we’re slightly subjective) televised award show ever: The Soup Awards! With past honorees such as the hot tub from “Jersey Shore,” Stains the cupcake loving pooch from “Its Me Or The Dog,” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” for Being Responsible For Creating The Show That Is Virtually The Only Show That Is Ever In Our ‘Gay Shows’ Segment, there is truly no other award show that can compare to The Soup Awards. This year Joel McHale will be honoring an entirely new group of deserving recipients for their crowning achievements in such categories as Best Pooping (Unscripted), Best Japanese Show That Talks About Gay Issues in the USA, and the coveted Entertainer of The Year. Stopping by to join McHale in presenting the sought-after awards include some of “The Soup’s” favorite guests and some surprise celebrities that are such a surprise, that they don’t even know they are booked on our show yet! And did we mention yet that this will all be live?! Well it will be, so don’t miss it!
Tune-in to E!’s “The Soup” returning to Fridays beginning December 12th at 10pm ET. The new Friday night show kicks-off with The Soup Awards live only on E! Friday won’t know what hit it!
