    From TV Guide.com

    E! Cooks Up New Soup 080915mattiseman.jpg Matt Iseman by Michael Schwartz/ WireImage.comE! is offering a new Soup on its menu.

    Following the success of Joel McHale's The Soup, the network is planning to expand its franchise with the addition of Sports Soup, Variety reports.

    Set to premiere on sister channel Versus, Sports Soup will do - or at least hope to do - to sports what The Soup does to pop culture in the same format to boot.

    Comedian and Clean House host Matt Iseman will host the skewering program and offer an "undistorted glimpse into sports," Marc Fein, Versus executive vice president of programming production and business operations, said.

    Sports Soup will premiere Oct. 14 at 10 pm/ET.

    Can Iseman match McHale barb-for-barb? - Joyce Eng

    Sounds like a baaaad idea. They've tried this kind of show before on ESPN and it failed.

    Yep definitely sounds like a bad idea.

    E! must really love the Soup format. I ran across a show on Style Network called The Dish. It appears to be The Soup but covers fashion topics. Maybe because I am not into fashion, but it didn't appear to be funny.

    For anyone who hasn't checked out Sports Soup you can do so tonight. Right after the new episode of The Soup an episode of Sports Soup will air on E!.

    I caught about half of it before I turned it off and went to bed. Was mediocre. I don't care much for sports, so I didn't find it as interesting. Which is kind of ironic considering I never watch most any of the stuff The Soup shows. Only stuff they show that I watch is if it is something like Heroes or House.
