Grace Helbig, who boasts over 2 million subscribers on her YouTube channel may be an expert when it comes to the daily vlog format, but she doesn't know as much about hosting a show on traditional television. To help her prepare for her upcoming E! talk show The Grace Helbig Show, she sat down with well-known TV hosts such as Larry King and Andy Cohen to ask for advice about running a talk show.
Helbig met with legendary TV host King, Cohen of Bravo’s Watch What Happens: Live, Joel McHale of E!’s The Soup, and Chris Hardwick of Comedy Central’s @midnight (which just debuted its own interactive Instagram series). The YouTuber and comedienne receives plenty of funny tips; Cohen, for example, tells Helbig he distracts bad interviewees by sweating, while Hardwick recommends holding up something she made to liven up the situation. Helbig also gains sage advice from her fellow hosts, »

With the release date of Community’s season six fast approaching, it’s hard not to get excited. The series was cancelled by NBC back in 2014, but like a knight in shining armor (who also happens to own a production company), Yahoo! has taken over the show, which it’s now producing as a web series for devoted audiences.
Although the previous season saw the departure of some notable characters, comedic staples like Danny Pudi, who plays Abed Nadir, and The Soup’s Joel McHale, who plays Jeff Winger, have stuck around, guaranteeing that this sixth season is bound to be a great one, as evidenced by the trailer below.
One character whose brilliance is often overlooked, however, is that of Dean Craig Pelton. Played by Oscar winning screenwriter Jim Rash, Pelton and his costume choices are a highlight of the show. His costumes, which aim to either explore »

Although comedian/writer Joel McHale has been mocking the Kardashians as host and executive producer of E's The Soup for as long as the controversial family has been famous, he also knows who pays the bills.
McHale, 43, opens up about his fellow E! stars in a new interview with The Daily Beast, surprisingly acknowledging their importance in his life.
"Their celebrity has reached a level that E! never dreamt of, and for The Soup, they are in the news every day -- even if they do nothing," he explains. "Yesterday it was 'Kim Kardashian Is Taking Piano Lessons! 'This is not news! No one really cares about it, but everyone talks about it, and it's happening!"
"I guess I have to thank them for the cars that I own and the house that I live in and for the education for my children, because they have, in a very weird way, paid for it »

“I don’t think I’m smart enough to do the job,” he told Variety. “I think I come off as being smart. But deep down I’m really not. Plus, I’ve just signed on for two more years at E!, and I’m having a ball on that show. And E! has been incredibly good.”
“Jon Stewart deals with large, very important issues,” he said. “We obsess about the weirdos on ‘The Bachelor’ who do ghost adventures and look for Bigfoot. So I think the show would not be up to the intellectual standards that everyone is looking for.”
McHale said he was shocked »

First Letterman’s leaving. Then Colbert goes in Dave’s stead. And now you’re taking Jon Stewart away from me too?!? Damn you Late Night Gods!
Still, we most soldier on, and we have about a solid year left with Stewart, and that gives us plenty of time to find a solid replacement. Here are just a few nominees from the Sound on Sight staff.

Why does Jon Stewart have to leave? Now where will we learn about the news? It seems hard to fathom him not being there, but it looks like it will be a reality. While there are many correspondents on his show that they could move forward with, let’s look at the landscape of late night and ask what we need more of: girls. And what girl would be better than Amy Poehler. With Parks and Recreation finishing up, »
Joel McHale has welcomed many big name guest stars to his E! show The Soup, but there's one celebrity he'd give anything to have on the show. Taylor Swift. But not for any personal reasons...it's all about the pop star's Twitter following! "I'd want whoever has the most Twitter followers!" McHale tells E! News. "Who would that be, Taylor Swift? Taylor Swift, just out of sheer media power. She would tweet that to like, 100 million followers! So that tweet would reach 100 million people and it would probably increase ratings. It sounds pretty Machiavellian and cold, but damn it I have to get the word out there and she would really help!" And after the "Blank »
