Chelsea Handler and E! Brace for Contract Wrangle

28 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

E! will not comment on the future of its signature latenight show “Chelsea Lately” on the heels of Variety’s Friday report that the show’s host, comedienne Chelsea Handler, and the NBCUniversal-owned network are grappling over the terms of her contract, which could result in the end of the only female-led program in the ever-splintering wee-hours landscape.

Handler is in the last year of her contract, and her show, “Chelsea Lately,” is slated to run on E! until the end of the year. Yet it is unclear whether she will want to continue  after that date , according to people familiar with the situation. Another factor in the talks is likely to be the cost of the show, which debuted on E! in 2007, versus its ratings and advertising base, some of these people said.

“Chelsea has nine months left on her contract, and E! will not comment on the future »

Joel McHale Talks Jeff's Growth on 'Community'

27 March 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Community" has had a tumultuous run, but its stars are clearly thrilled to discuss the Dan Harmon-helmed fifth season and its unexpected character turns. (Shirley's sinisterness is a personal favorite.) We caught up with Joel McHale, who is somehow droller than what you even see on "The Soup," to discuss Jeff Winger's teaching gig, the less-expected perks of having Dan Harmon back on board, and his favorite arcs of the season. »

What’s the Best Reality Show Ever? Semis: The Soup Producers on Real World: Sf vs. Bachelor

17 March 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Today we move to the semifinals of Vulture's ultimate Reality Rumble, a bracket to determine the greatest season of the greatest reality-tv shows, from The Real World on. Each day, a different writer will be charged with determining the winner of a round of the bracket, until Vulture's Margaret Lyons judges the finals on March 25. Today, in the first round of the semis, The Bachelor's thirteenth season, in which Jason Mesnick asked for a do-over after proposing, takes on The Real World: San Francisco, which introduced us to Puck and Pedro. And who more qualified to judge a reality battle than three producers of The Soup, who spend every day studying more reality television than you could ever hope to consume. Vulture contributor Gwynne Watkins moderated the deliberations between The Soup executive producer and writer Kp Anderson, executive producer Edward Boyd, and co-executive producer and writer Lee Farber.The Bachelor »

These 7 Fun Videos Parody, Spoof and Remix ‘True Detective’

12 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

This past Sunday saw the season finale of HBO’s True Detective, a show that was hands down one of the best things to happen to television in many years. How do I know this? Well, I know this because it’s one of the rare pieces of entertainment that even internet haters had nothing bad to say about. Now that, my friends, is how you know something is truly remarkable.

While nothing but love and praise was heaped upon the show’s mesmerizing and utterly enthralling first season, that doesn’t mean that fans didn’t have a whole lot of fun with it. So iconic and memorable were so many moments and lines of dialogue throughout the show’s eight episode run that it was inevitable that spoofs, satires and parodies would hit the net in its wake… and boy did they ever.

'Yellow King Theory': Watch the Web's Funniest True Detective Parodies

9 March 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

var brightcovevideoid = '3308037094001'; With its obsessed fan base, wild-eyed monologues and sprawling Lovecraftian mythos, HBO neo-noir True Detective is ripe for satire. As the series gears up for its finale Sunday night, a number of online jokers have gotten their parodies out at exactly the right time. Our favorite is Onion veteran David Sidorov's "Yellow King Theory," which pokes fun at the insane brand of hyper-analysis the show has inspired in its fans. Sidorov's theory of who the real killer is might seem unconventional at first, but with his obsessive eye for detail, he's spotted clues that more casual viewers probably missed. »

If You Watch True Detective, This Will Crack You Up

6 March 2014 10:12 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Everyone seems to be talking about True Detective, but what we don't seem to be talking about is how we can't always understand the characters, you know, talking. Joel McHale tackled this issue in a parody of the HBO hit for The Soup, and with McHale in Matthew McConaughey's role and Community costar Jim Rash as Woody Harrelson's role, the two spout nonsense as they re-create memorable True Detective scenes. It's so right on, especially if you, like me, find yourself continually turning up the volume when the show comes on. »

'The Soup's' 'True Detective' parody is the greatest 'True Detective' parody

6 March 2014 8:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Full disclosure: I am apparently the only person left on Earth who has not watched HBO's "True Detective." And yet apparently Rust and Marty (Woody Harrelson and Matthew "I Am My Own Hero" McConaughey) are sometimes extremely difficult to understand, what with their Deep South drawls and such. For those viewers who are now nodding their heads in painful acknowledgement, we now have the "True Detective" parody to beat all "True Detective" parodies (probably even this one), courtesy of "The Soup's" Joel McHale and his mumbly partner-in-crime Jim Rash.

Jim Rash and Joel McHale Recreate ‘True Detective’

6 March 2014 1:51 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Forget solving the mystery of the Yellow King.

Can anyone watching HBO’s new crime drama “True Detective” figure out what Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s hardened cops are actually saying?

In a spoof video titled “Can Anyone Understand ‘True Detective?’” that aired during Wednesday’s episode of “The Soup,”  Joel McHale and his “Community” costar Jim Rash fill in for for the HBO series’ stars with epic, indecipherable banter.

But comprehension issues haven’t stopped audiences from tuning in. Ratings-wise, the show is the premium cable channel’s most popular current series … of course, the new season of “Game of Thrones” does bow April 6.

The Soup” airs every Wednesday on E! at 10 p.m.

‘True Detective’ Baffles ‘TheSoup'; ‘TheSoup’ Parody Baffles ‘True Detective’ Fans (Video)

6 March 2014 8:18 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It's easy to make fun of something you don't understand, which is exactly what Joel McHale did on “The Soup” this week with a parody asking, “Can anyone understand ‘True Detective'?” The sketch (above) takes Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson's characters to task for speaking gibberish, but there's only one problem: They don't. See video ‘True Detective': The Yellow King References You've Missed And fans of the critically-acclaimed HBO series don't get how creator Nic Pizzolatto's complex, rich dialogue — that doesn't spoon feed audiences answers like the common cop procedural — can be boiled down to nonsensical gibberish, »

Watch The Soup Take on True Detective

6 March 2014 6:42 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

True Detective has many mysteries: Who is the Yellow King? Who really killed Dora Lange? And most important, what are these people saying? Not just decoding their philosophical musing, but in the plainest, most literal sense: What are they saying? Last night's episode of The Soup tackled this last question with the help of Joel McHale's Community co-star Jim Rash and some truly indecipherable drawled nonsense. "My mama said, 'Dogface to the banana patch,'" says McHale-as-Rust. Truer words were never spoken. »
