Talk Soup (1993-2003) was a television show produced for cable network E!. The show aired selected clips of the previous day's daily talk shows--ranging from daytime entries like The Jerry Springer Show and to celebrity interview shows like The Tonight Show--surrounded by humorous commentary delivered by the host. Although Talk Soup poked fun at the talk shows, it also advertised the topics and guests of upcoming broadcasts of them. Hosts included Greg Kinnear, John Henson, Hal Sparks and Aisha Tyler, among others. Kinnear won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1994 for his involvement with the show.
Weird Al Yankovic recorded a song entitled "Talk Soup" for his album Alapalooza. The lyrics describe a man who is desperate to appear on some of the talk shows whose clips appeared in Talk Soup. The song ends with a sample of the "E!" sound clip played at the end of the television show's end credits.
