Does anyone else remember this show when it was called “Talk Soup” and Greg Kinnear hosted it? You know, when it was still kind of funny and people actually watched “Jerry Springer”? Yeah, that rocked. I was also a huge John Henson fan. There was just something about that skunk stripe …
Anyway, Steagle-eyed friend of the blog Scorpioprodigy sent us this report of a segment recently played on E-Television’s “The Soup” featuring Stephen Colbert and Richard Branson:
E! has again showed that they’re big fans of ‘The Colbert Report’. This week, E!’s The Soup opened up its latest episode with two men giving the host, Joek MaHale, a video tape of something he wasn’t going to like. This video contained footage of the infamous Colbert-Branson water fiasco. McHale then angrily walked out of his office to a nearby cubicle where Richard Branson was watching ‘The Tyra Banks Show’. He yelled out, “How many times have I warned you about going on ‘The Colbert Report’ and getting into water fights with Stephen?” Branson explained that he was just trying to promote his new airline but to no avail. He was “fired” and as he walked out, he smashed a cupcake in Joel’s face.
This show will replay on 9/4 at 2am and 11:30am (EST, I’m guessing).
