This is fantastic news for me because I am hosting and writing on it. I’d like to slobber on G4 by saying that the pilot was BEYOND fun and I’m looking forward to doing the show regularly. “Web Soup” is produced by the “The Soup” producers, so it’s more of a spin-off than a rip-off. I guest-hosted “Talk Soup” in the early 00s before Aisha took over and have always loved the format. People have asked me on Twitter if I’m going to do a Joel McHale impersonation. I reply that I’ve had pretty much the same TV voice since ’94 when I started at MTV but if that seems Joel-like then there are far worse people to be compared to cuz that guy has GOT THE GOODS. (As a side note, Joel’s considerably taller, making the impersonation that much more difficult. I’d put him at about 8’1″.)
I can’t wait to present web videos and vagina jokes to you every Sunday night starting June 7th on G4! Soon I will post an email address for you to submit vids. ALSO, I would like you to come to tapings if you’re going to be in LA on Friday afternoons so you can use this as-yet-undefined email for that as well.
