The end of an era is upon us. Shortly after shuttering its Master Control operations department in Los Angeles, E! has now canceled their longest running program. The Soup, a comedy series that skewers pop culture, is going to air its series finale on December 18th. This will bring the show to a close after spending 22 years on the air.
Current host Joel McHale will help celebrate the legacy he is leaving behind when the finale episode airs the same day that Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters. The long-standing cable staple was first launched on E! in 1991, but it was originally called Talk Soup. This early iteration of the program focused solely on clips from the various talk shows airing at that time. When it was revamped as The Soup in 2004, the show expanded its reach to all pop culture programing and also focused on viral »
After 22 seasons, E! is ending “The Soup,” the cable network announced Wednesday. The final episode will air on Dec. 18, serving as the series finale.
Hosted by Joel McHale for 12 years, the pop culture comedy series has been a staple on E! for more than two decades.
“We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of ‘The Soup,” said Jeff Olde, exec vice president of programming and development for E! “‘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.”
“I loved doing ‘The Soup’ for all of these years — 86 to be exact — but am excited to solely focus on my acting career now, »

There is a common movie marketing technique that I call "title-checking," which is often employed when a filmmaker/producer's movies have more recognition than the people who made them. For example, one of the Paddington trailers states "From the producer of Harry Potter," which certainly says a lot more to your average movie-goer than "From producer David Heyman." I bring this up because, if such a tactic would ever be used for the stop motion masterpiece Anomalisa, it would make for one of the most bizarre and wide-ranging promotional blurbs in cinematic history. Check this out: "From the writer of Being John Malkovich and the producers of Community, Robot Chicken and You're Next..." These are the diverse minds behind Anomalisa, a ray of cinematic hope for originality in Hollywood that very well may be one of the best movies of the year.

Godzilla vs Jason Voorhees
The wonderfully twisted minds at Adult Swim's Robot Chicken have skewered the returning trend of the "versus" movie by pitting Godzilla against Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th franchise. Unfortunately, this hilarious video is less than a minute long, »
I hate being bored, so over the years I’ve managed to shorten my attention span to the point when the good stuff runs out, so do I. Therefore, from time to time I have a little to say about a lot of things. For example:
DC / Warner Bros finally gave credit where credit has long been due: appending Bill Finger’s name to Bob Kane’s as the men who made Batman a Day-One success. It is marvelously ironic that the first time I’d seen the “Created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger” line was on Cartoon Network’s Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 3: Magical Friendship, which, for the record, I enjoyed – certainly a lot more than the second one. Hawkman vs Robot Chicken? Priceless. Anyway, Bill’s name is supposed to be deployed in similar fashion on all future Batman stuff, including their electronic comics (left). It’s about time. »

There are certain movies that, as you are witnessing them for the first time, feel like something of an event, and that is precisely my experience with Stephen King’s It, which first aired on ABC in November 1990. I can remember everything about watching both installments—how terrified I was of Tim Curry as Pennywise, how much I genuinely loved those kids and how awesome it was to see one of my favorite actors, John Ritter, show up in a horror movie (based on a Stephen King novel nonetheless). It was a landmark in many regards, but to me, as a fan, it's monumental because it truly was one of the first things I ever saw air on network television that genuinely scared the hell out of me.
And since we here at Daily Dead decided to celebrate the Halloween season by paying tribute to many of our favorite King »

The dream came true on October 28th, 2013 at Los Angeles’s Egyptian Theater, where the 2013 Beyond Fest was being held. Trick ‘r Treat (2007) was appropriately closing out the evening, but the viewing began with a Q&A session including director Michael Dougherty, producer Bryan Singer, actors Dylan Baker, Brian Cox, Quinn Lord, Jean-Luc Bilodeau and host Seth Green. While a reunion between these actors and filmmakers was special, the real magic came when Sam, the famous character/holiday mascot from Dougherty’s film, came on stage delivering a message for Dougherty to make a sequel, which was echoed by Legendary Pictures producer Thomas Tull. An already raucous crowd amplified their applause when a banner for Trick ‘r Treat 2 appeared on the screen behind the panel.
A Trick ‘r Treat sequel hasn’t been the only project on Dougherty’s mind since that night. His new film Krampus, another holiday-themed horror »

Meta upon meta upon meta. That’s one of the best ways to describe “Con Man,” the delightfully self-referential new web series created by “Firefly” alum Alan Tudyk. The series, available to view on Vimeo, is about an actor named Wray Nerely, who, much like Tudyk, played a spaceship pilot in a short-lived sci-fi TV show that got canceled 10 years ago but has a cult following that just grows and grows. Tudyk plays Nerely, who has a much more begrudging attitude toward his life on the fan convention circuit than his real-life counterpart does. Nerely resents the fact that his canceled show (called “Spectrum” in the world of “Con Man,” where, amusingly, “Firefly” also exists) is the best thing he’s ever done. Tudyk’s resume has no shortage of greatness — from the hilarious British comedy “Death at a Funeral” to ABC sitcom “Suburgatory” to voices in “Frozen” and “Wreck-It-Ralph. »

So if you haven’t noticed, the Thursday of New York Comic Con has kiiiiiind of turned into “Turtles Day” for me, in the sense that Nickelodeon does their press and events for the current animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show on that Thursday, and since I love Turtles and the current show, that’s where I’m at each year for whatever they offer.
This year, that means I had the pleasure of interviewing Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer/Director), Brandon Auman (Executive Producer/Head Writer), Hoon Lee (voice of Master Splinter), Rob Paulsen (voice of Donatello), and Greg Cipes (voice of Michelangelo) about the show. They dished about everything from the upcoming season to whether Raph and Mona Lisa are really going to maybe have babies in, like, Season 6 or something (heh). I also got to go to the rockin’ Turtles panel (in which cast and crew geeked out »
