Can't get enough of that soup!

I have been a huge fan of a certain reality clip show from it's very start. I'm talking, of course, about Talk Soup (or 'The Soup' in it's revamped form). From Greg Kinear to Joel McHale, the idea of the show hasn't changed. Recap the week's reality shows high points (or low points) with comedy. Through sketches put together from the interns on staff and guest appearances by the very reality show celebrities, the show has maintained it's quirky stabs at the way our television seems to be headed!

Well, I have to say that I am intensely offended by Fox Reality's newest lame attempt to be a regularly watched channel... on basic cable... Reality Binge is a blatant rip-off of The Soup! Even the stupid host has way too many Joel McHale-isms! Fox needs to get more creative... this is not the first thing they've ripped off and I'm sure, in their desperation to stay 'on top,' it won't be their last!

So, my friends, if you're looking for a humorous reality clip show, don't waste your time; instead, turn back to The Soup! It's better than ever!!! In the words of John Henson, the second host of Talk Soup, "It looks like soup, it tastes like soup, but it ain't soup!"
