E!'s hit series "The Soup" celebrates its milestone 300th episode Sunday, December 5 at 7pm AEDST. Over the years host Joel McHale, along with an army of surprise celebrity guests, has brought couch potatoes the best clips from the worst shows and pop culture moments and no one, not even the humble heiresses of "The Simple Life," were safe. From reality television gems such as "Tool Academy," and "Bad Girls Club" to talk show bloopers on "Live with Regis and Kelly," and "Larry King Live!" to angsty teen melodrama on "Gossip Girl," and "90210" to just purely bizarre behavior from Tyra Banks and Lindsay Lohan, E!'s "The Soup" has become the Friday night destination to get your weekly dish of the craziest moments that pop culture has to offer. 300 "Soups" proudly served and many more steamy helpings on the way.

In addition, former Soup "victims," including the morning show hosts of Good Day New York and Good Day LA, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa, Wendy Williams, Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, pay their respects to the series with personalized shout-outs and Sanjaya returns with his own message for Joel. "The Soup" will also count down its top 3 moments as voted by the fans of the show on E! Online poll.
For the past seven years, loyal fans have enjoyed the sharp wit and keen eye for the best of the worst in reality television provided by host Joel McHale. Armed with a team of interns and the hairy chested, bikini wearing Mankini, "The Soup" scours the week of television, spending hours pondering over the week's most outrageous and topical moments in pop culture. From train wreck "American Idol" contestants and New Jersey's finest hooking up in a dirty hot tub to Wendy Williams' weave-of-the-week and long, awkward stares of "The Hills," "The Soup" has covered every laughable TV moment. With his trademark dry wit and take-no-prisoners humor, McHale is television's answer for laugh-out-loud observations, pee-in-your-pants reality show clips and dead-on commentary celebrating the week's most memorable moments in entertainment.
