My pick for TV Tonight is veering off the broadcast networks and onto E!’s “The Soup”. The half an hour news style comedy show features host Joel McHale, who looks at the past week’s celebrity news, gossip, and blunders along with the goofiest reality and television clips.

In the past, I was never able to really get into the show, but since McHale took over hosting duties the show has been one of the most consistently funny shows on television (right up there with Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show”). “Saturday Night Live’s” Weekend Update wishes that it was half as funny at “The Soup”. Tonight’s new episode airs at 10 on E!.
