Joel McHale: Kris Jenner Went To E! Bosses About "The Soup" - While promoting his new Netflix show, “The Joel McHale Show With Joel McHale,” Joel McHale revealed Kris Jenner would complain to the brass at E! when McHale teased her family while poking fun at “Keeping Up With the Kardashian” while he hosted “The Soup.” E! broadcasts both shows. McHale told Variety that Jenner – who he calls Kris Kardashian – would often "whine" to E! honcho Ted Herbert, who would pass on her comments to McHale. However, after Harbert left E! in 2011, McHale says there was a zero tolerance policy for mocking the Kardashians. McHale added, “The next administration, the president said to my face, “Don’t make fun of the Kardashians. We don’t want you to make fun of the Kardashians anymore.” So I was like, oh this show is doomed because that’s why the show worked"…He was right - E! eventually canceled "The Soup" in 2015, while "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" continues to air on the cable channel.
