I watch it every weekend. I am amazed they can get a laugh from me everytime they break out the pickle licking girl. I think they've mastered the art of overusing clips. Like the one with Liz Taylor screaming, "MARRRIIIIED???? NOOOOOOOOOOO!"...they've used that one to death but I still giggle everytime I see it.

That, and Oprah's va-jay-jay.

I watch this every week and it always cracks me up. Joel McHale is good host and is always funny. Last weeks episode had me laughing when he did the Hugh Hefner speech that he repeated. Its also good to see that there are the occasional celeb (or kinda celeb) who might make an appearance to provide more fodder for the show. The show demonstrates how bad TV is these days. Everything from Oprah, Tyra and Dr. Phil to any and all of the shitty reality shows. But at least we are provided with a giggle.

I credit this show for showing me just how much of a fucking idiot waste of human flesh that Tyra Banks is.

It always makes me laugh when they show the clip of the newscaster that can't stop saying Good morning. Also seeing the Miss Teen USA clip again on last weeks episode was a good one. What the hell was that girl trying to say.

The little song he sang after the TMZ vid on the two Heroes stars this week was priceless.

I always thought it was funny that "Skunk Boy" left the show to pursue a bigger acting career and then other than maybe a few commercials I never saw him do anything else.

Yeah, I used to watch regularly but I just can't get into Joel McHale. I keep hearing how hilarious he is, but he does nothing for me.

The Soup clips are the only way I will ever be able to watch even a couple seconds of any reality shows.

YES, YES, yes, god yes!!! Joel McHale cracks me up like nobody's business. I love The Soup. It's so irreverant and ridiculous. The "guests" on the final countdown shows of 2007 killed me. Not-gay Chad. Dancing Asian kid. Mankini. I frikkin' love this show. It's one of the few things I actually look forward to on TV each and every week. I almost caught his standup act a couple weeks ago, but I didn't have time to go.

There were 2 great lines this past week:

"The Tampon Swamp"

and the one about the school adminstrator getting teabagged by a bull.

I'd love to see Joell McHale host the Oscars if I didn't think it would go over the heads of his audience.

Here's an interesting interview with Joel McHale: http://www.avclub.com/content/interview/joel_mchale

Tyra hates the show.
