Satirical newscaster Stephen Colbert provides humorous commentary on the big issues going on in the United States and the rest of the world, with his larger-than-life ego and overly-patriotic spirit along with him every step of the way.
when this show first came out,I never missed it. It would have a host (Greg,Joh,Hal or Aeisha) showing you the highlights...or rather LOWLIGHTS...of everything that had been on the talk shows that day. TALK SOUP was REALLY great if you had been at work and missed the shows. They showed you the wildest sample of the show they could find. (and,remember..this was before any of us had an inkling that the Jerry Springer show was anything but REAL TRUE stories!!!) I never missed an episode. First up was Greg Kinnear who was very cute and charming. You would watch and say "Damn. where can I find me a man like that??" when Greg Left to do movies John Henson took over. At first I wasnt even going to give him half a chance,but after awhile I warmed up to him and realized he was funny. Then HE announced he was leaving to do a show( did he??? I dont remember ever seeing it.) Then Hal Sparks (droooooooooool) took over.And once I warmed up to him and start to think he was cute ..guess what?? HE LEFT!!!(to do Queer As Folk,among other things). By this time I was very upset with the whole franchise. I loved Greg John and Hal and now they were gone. Then they brought a woman in to do the show and it just wasnt the same for me. This show is defunct now,which is a shame,because when it was good it was very good.
