We're very pleased to see E!'s "The Soup" expand to the G4 network with "Web Soup", hosted by G4's Chris Hardwick, which will be airing at on Sundays at 9pm on Sundays, starting June 4th.
While we've enjoyed Jamie Oliver's cooking shows, the ones he actually cooks in, we're not so sure how well a proposed reality show on ABC, produced by Ryan Seacrest, will fare. The premise is that Oliver will go to cities around the US and figure out how local resources could be used to provide citizens with better eating options. We have no doubts about Oliver's great personality and dedication, but on the production side, Seacrest's "Momma's Boys" did very badly as well as his own talk show.
