“We are incredibly proud of the long-running success of ‘The Soup,” Jeff Olde, EVP of Programming & Development for E! told ET in a statement. “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.”
On the show, McHale often made fun of his channel's sister show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and in March, the TV host reflected on how they indirectly have financed his life.
"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," he told The Daily Beast at the time.
