A show that has been airing on cable for more than two decades has come to the end of its run. EW.com reports that E! has canceled “The Soup.”

The network made the announcement today, scheduling the final episode for Dec. 18.

The show, originally called “Talk Soup” and hosted by Greg Kinnear, bowed in 1991. For the past 12 years it has been hosted by Joel McHale.

Other hosts have included John Henson, Hal Sparks and Aisha Tyler. The clip show skewers the week’s events in television and popular culture.

In a statement released today, Jeff Olde, EVP of Programming & Development for E!, said: “We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of ‘The Soup.’ … ‘The Soup’ has delivered countless laughs and unforgettable episodes, and we are grateful to the talented team’s fearless wit and clever approach week after week. Joel took the show to new heights for more than a decade, and his irreverent humor and unique brand of comedy as captured so perfectly on ‘The Soup’ will be missed.”
